Veterinarians and researchers at the Pet Nutrition Center in Topeka, Kansas recently conducted a study "to determine the effect of feeding a food with coconut oil and supplemental l-carnitine, lysine, leucine, and fiber on weight loss and maintenance in cats." The results of their study were published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Their results found that feeding coconut oil and the other supplements to the cats resulted in a loss of a significant amount of body weight and fat mass, but retained lean body mass.
Coconut oil is well known for being rich in health benefits for people, but this product is also highly beneficial for dogs and cats as well, and for pretty much all of the same reasons it’s great for humans.
Giving coconut to your pet is an excellent health decision and can improve your pet’s quality of life, but there is a right way and wrong way to start supplementing your dog or cat’s diet with coconut oil.
I wanted to find natural remedies to help both kittys to live a long healthy happy life. Coconut oil is part of their diet, and I know for sure, there will be less hair balls hacking up from both cats and Dante will have more energy and healthy teeth and gums and the fur coats have already become shiny and less shedding.
