The nutrition of human beings’ pets is almost as unhealthy as that of humans. For example, dogs and cats either get cooked food from waste and leftovers, or they get dried food, which is virtually “dead” and so good As no longer has any nutrients.
No wonder that many dogs, cats and horses suffer from food intolerance, with all the unpleasant consequences, such as stomach trouble, allergies, etc. And even the coat looks dull and unkempt despite regular brushing. In addition, the animals – particularly when they are often outside – are repeatedly attacked by parasites during the spring and summer months, for example, ticks and fleas.

Coconut oil for dogs
–> Coconut oil as a remedy for ticks in dogs
Scarcely a dog comes through spring and summer, without being attacked by ticks. Especially in animals with a long coat ticks usually do not fall to the owner, they are not noticed until they are already saturated with the blood of the host and then let themselves fall off. Although dogs have a much stronger immune system than humans, ticks can also transmit diseases to dogs, for example the feared borreliosis. Not a few dogs have already died from the consequences of tick bites. Therefore the coat of the dog should be treated again and again with coconut oil against ticks, which gives an effective protection. The application and dosage is simple: A small amount of coconut oil for dogs is rubbed in the hand and then painted on the coat of the dog. If you want to make it perfect, the coconut oil against ticks can additionally massage into the skin of the animal.
The linoleic acid contained in the coconut oil produces a natural protective coat which emits a very unpleasant smell on ticks, so that the small spiders prefer to look for another host. If, despite the use of coconut oil, the dog gets a tick on the dog, it will usually not bite, but will quickly search for the distance.
–> Coconut oil against fleas in the dog
Similar to ticks, the smell of lauric acid contained in coconut oil is also very unpleasant for fleas. Existing fleas are either killed by the acid or can be dropped by themselves from the animal, new fleas will no longer select the dog as the host. In addition, the feared breed of the fleas, ie the eggs which the animals put on the dog and from which the offspring is produced, are reliably killed by the lauric acid in the coconut oil. Coconut oil is therefore an ideal means for the protection of dogs against fleas.
The application against fleas is similar to that of coconut oil for dogs against ticks. Simply rub a small amount of coconut oil in the palms of your hands, then apply the dog’s coat. The massage into the skin strengthens the effect still, as the experiences show.
–> Internal application of coconut oil against parasites
In addition to external application by rubbing the fur, coconut oil can also be administered internally to ticks, fleas and other parasites. Add one teaspoon daily to the food. Most dogs like the smell and taste of coconut oil very much, and the intake succeeds without problems.

It is still controversial whether cats are infected with tick borne borreliosis, and the disease risk of cats is also low in FSME (early summer meningoencephalitis). For this, inflammation of the bison site or infection with other bacterial pathogens such as, for example, Ehrlichia or Anaplasms, Rickettsia, Babesia, Coxielle. All of them can be transmitted to humans or dogs and can trigger unpleasant to dangerous illnesses.
Coconut oil is a tried-and-tested natural product to prevent fur and skin parasites of all kinds in the run-up – without chemicals or cramped cats’ necklaces. Particularly suitable is coconut oil for cats, because it contains no toxic ingredients such as many essential oils. Therefore, it is absolutely safe to use.

The external application of coconut oil protects horses above all ectoparasites of all kinds. Like other pets, pasture horses are exposed to ticks, mosquitoes, brakes, mites or lice. The lauric acid contained in the coconut oil has a strong effect on the plague glands, the effect lasts a long time.
Particularly in older animals or those with a poor general state, for example, a fungal infection in the coat can be treated well by the antifungal-active coconut oil.
Many horses suffer from an allergy to the widespread kinkelmücke. The result is the so-called summer eczema: tormenting itching causes the animals to go off tail, mane and fur, until large-area wrinkles and bare, wet spots form.
Coconut oil has recently been subjected to several practical tests on the horse and has shown convincing results in many cases:
