Many people view coconut as a treat that not only tastes good but is good for your dog as well. Educated dog owners have known the benefits for many years and now the secret it out. Coconut flakes have been reported to provide your dog with increased energy and helps protect them from certain illnesses and gives their coat that wonderful shine. May even help reduce digestion problems and allergic reactions. Of course I am not a veterinarian and would not presume to make medical claims but I can say that it has worked wonders with my own dogs. Why not give it a try and I think you will be very pleased with the results.
