Just a quick question, I just bathed Merckx and he lost more furs than usual, his d-mange is flaring up again, especially on his face and neck. He has meningitis so he can't take any supplements that boost his immune system, as it will make his meningitis flare up. So my question is, will coconut oil be enough to help him? I have neem oil that I can mix with it. Currently we are just bathing once a week in a neem shampoo (always washing his beddings), and then getting a bit of grapeseed oil and neem oil applied where it's losing the hair. Sometimes it seems to work, but currently that is not the case. It's so frustrating!

I'm not sure the coconut oil would work as far as getting rid of the mange but I'm sure it would be good as a preventative to any bacterial infection the pup might get from the skin problems. It wouldnt hurt anything to try it. Im so sorry your pup is having all those problems!

That is awesome!! I have the nutiva brand pulled up. I just want to make sure all is good before I get some for the girls. I do know from reading that we are to start out small with the amount we give them.

Yes start out small and see how it goes. Too much too quick can cause stomach upset. But I must say I never have made it to the max amount to give them. I am at about 1 tablespoon daily for Kippah at this moment.

Yes, I've read the same thing about starting out with small amounts. Tonight I just gave Georgie a doggy massage with the oil (which is solid, like butter and melts). I rubbed it on her pink spots... And then she pretty much licked it off and proceeded to licked my hands, too...

So, it's safe to say that Georgie likes it... . And it feels nice on my hands, too, from the dry winter weather!!

Well I must say that the man at the health food store sounded shocked when I told him it would be for my dogs. He was telling me all the stuff I could do with this & how it doesn't taste bad. I just interrupted him telling him it would be for the dogs. LOL
