Did you know Coconut Oil is healthy for both You and Your Dog? 

After doing some more research and reading an excessive amount of articles on the health benefits of coconut oil, I learned that there are plenty of benefits of coconut oil, not just for humans, but dogs as well!

Coconut Oil Quick Health Facts for Dogs

  • It regulates insulin and can help prevent or control diabetes
  • It is recommended that dogs can be given 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of the dog’s body weight per day
  • It can disinfect cuts and wounds
  • It can help with digestive disorders
  • It can help balance the thyroid
  • It can be used to clean teeth
  • It is great for their skin & coat

I decided I would use coconut oil to make some frozen dog treats for my “goodest boys”, Kenzo + Vík! Thus, after a few tries, I came up with Healthy + Delicious Homemade Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Dog Treats.

Instructions

    YAY! I can’t wait to see your treats!!!!

  3. Does your dog eat them frozen?

    1. Ren Lenhof Author says:

      Hi!!
      Kenzo likes to eat them frozen but Vík likes them when they are a little softer so I put his in his dog bowl for him so that it doesn’t make a mess on the floor. 🤣

  4. Nicholas Medina says:

    How long do they last in the refrigerator?

    1. Ren Lenhof Author says:

      Hi! I would say, 2 weeks, or just like any other baked goods you would make for yourself. Thanks for following along!

  5. Ashley Looez says:

    Can any dog eat them ?

    1. Ren Lenhof Author says:

      HI!
      As long as your dog isn’t allergic to any of the ingredients they should be alright. I would talk to your vet if you are concerned with peanut allergies. 🙂 Thanks so much for reading!

  6. Roxanne says:

    What would be the serving quantity recommendation and how often? Thank you for these alternatives!

    1. Ren Lenhof Author says:

      Hi!! I would do one a day if your dog is 45lbs or less or 2 if they are larger.

  7. Jennifer says:

    I don’t use coconut oil and went to buy some the other day. Is there a preference in refined vs unrefined? I had no idea what to get.

    1. Ren Lenhof Author says:

      Hi!
      Refined coconut oil is more processed, resulting in a milder-tasting oil, while unrefined coconut oil endures less processing and has a lower smoke point and deeper coconut flavor. We usually buy unrefined. 🙂 Thanks so much for your question! It is a great one and thanks so much for reading!
