  1. My bulldogs love this stuff. They eat it right out of the jar and the coconut oil makes their snouts, skin and fur soft too.

  2. I give my English Bulldogs coconut oil every day as a treat, they love it! I also use it on any cuts or scrapes they have, and to soothe inflamed paws. It works really well for dry noses too. They love the taste so much that the lick it off of each other’s faces :). I was just giving them a spoonful, but it helps to know the correct dosing for heir body weight. Thanks! (The photo is of them sitting for their coconut oil treat.) 🙂
