Can Pets Drink Coconut Water for Bad Breath?

You might have heard of natural remedies for human bad breath such as fennel, baking soda or cinnamon. While you could brush your dog’s teeth with baking soda, how many people would actually do that? When I came across this remedy using coconut water for bad breath, I thought I’d give it a try. It turns out there are a lot of other reasons to feed your pet coconut water.

Firstly, coconut water is not toxic to pets. In fact, the vitamins and minerals are great for your 4-footed companion (and a few birds too). According to ultimatehomelife.com  there are several vital reasons to use coconut water. Coconut water is the fluid inside of immature coconuts that’s rich in nutrients and vitamins. You can easily find a coconut with water by shaking it. You should hear the water “sloshing” around inside.  Here are some reasons to use coconut water for bad breath from Ultimate Home Life:

  1. Fight viruses.
  2. Keep harmful bacteria away.
  3. Protect from infections.
  4. Boost immune systems.
  5. Form red blood cells in the body.
  6. Improve dog coat and skin conditions.
  7. Keep dog coat smooth and glossy.
  8. Fight off annoying issues such as flea allergies and itchy skin.
  9. Improve dog odor.
  10. Reduce bad dog breath.
  11. Regulate and balance insulin and thyroid levels.
  12. Aid in healing arthritis or ligament problems.
  13. Aid in healing cuts, wounds, bites from insects and stings when applied to them.

Thus you can see that applying coconut water topically also is beneficial. It is possible to use coconut in other forms too  such as fresh coconut, dried, coconut oil, coconut milk and powdered coconut. How much should you give your pet? As with any new food it’s a good idea to introduce it slowly to make sure there are no side effects such as diarrhea. It also depends on the size of the pet, of course. Also, please avoid giving your pet the coconut shells as they may cause obstruction of the digestive system if the pet eats them.

Coconut water could be used as a treat. It’s great for a hot, summer day – a refreshing treat. Want to try some of CocosPure coconut water? Just click the button below and it will be at your place within a week.

Coconut Oil as a Bad Breath Remedy for Your Dogs

Food Products 02There are a number of common causes for bad breath with dogs. Be sure to take good care of teeth and gums. Your dog will need those teeth to eat. Yes, you can brush your dog’s teeth to cut down on gum and tooth decay, just as we do with our own teeth. There are long-handled tooth brushes at most pet stores, so that getting into your dog’s mouth is easier. Just lift up the side lip and insert the brush.

But before you do that, this is where coconut oil comes in. Use it as a toothpaste. Dogs will love the sweet taste and coconut products sweeten the breath too. I brush my dog’s teeth several times a week and then I let her lick the brush. This cleans her tongue, another source of that bad breath. Here’s what Julia Szabo, pet health guru for the online site, Dogster, has to say about coconut oil.

Coconut oil is one of those pantry items you should never be without. It doesn’t just boost digestive, immune system, and metabolic functions — it also helps to combat canine bad breath. Put a lovin’ teaspoonful over your dog’s food every single day, and you’ll soon sniff sweeter breath — plus dogs love the taste; for them, coconut oil is a sweet treat. Some dog lovers even brush their pets’ teeth with coconut oil, making the chore an offer even ornery canines can’t refuse!

She thinks coconut oil is an important addition to a dog’s regular diet as well. She sites numerous reasons to add a teaspoon full to the dog food daily. It 1) improves of coat and fur (thicker and shinier), 2) reduces yeast (candida) and viral infections (kennel cough), 3) helps with arthritis, 4) regulates diabetes, and 5) with cinnamon can help avoid dementia. Sounds like a wonder food to me. However, the bottom line is what works, so give coconut oil a chance and let us know your results. OK?
