Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Dog Treats

The Fur + The Plants

Did you know Coconut Oil is HEALTHY for you & your Dog? I first started using coconut for cooking but have now been using it as a skin moisturizer, hair conditioner, lip balm, and to dilute some of my essential oils.

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

I hope your doggy enjoys this healthy & homemade coconut oil & peanut butter dog treat!
