I'm not sure as he is only 1 and we got him last August! I may try anti histamine and see if that helps I believe it can be given to dogs?

Some you can - definitely piriton is OK (but not piriteze as it has something else in it)

Typical, it is one of the many things that came back on stouts intolerances! Might start of trying salmon oil!

I've been giving Florrie a teaspoon of coconut oil on her breakfast for the past 6 months or so. Initially I started her on.it in the hopes that it would improve her skin and coat condition, it hasn't but shes complicated. She has quite a bit of medication in.the mornings so we hide all her tablets in a blob of coconut oil. Its the first thing she eats and she LOVES it! She can't have treats or food other than her own so every now and then as a treat or if shes been good having other meds then we give her a little coconut oil as a special treat! She'd do handstands and all sorts for a bit of coconut oil! Lol

Shes allergic to fish and fish oils so coconut oil was the best alternative. Ive tried putting some on her skin but she just licks it all off so defeats the point of applying it in the first place!

I've been using coconut oil for a while now. I had no idea dogs could benefit from it too!

I often use coconut oil for cooking - it isn't virgin though (doesn't have the coconut smell), it's refined I think (KTC is the brand). Is there benefits in giving Baxter this or do I need to buy the virgin oil?

If it comes out of the jar looking like a white paste and melts to a clear liquid at the temperature of your skin, it's probably what you want. The virgin product on the linked page, in jars, looks like what we've been using. It smells like coconut when used for cooking.

Yep, that's exactly what it comes out like :D

Thanks Bid :D who knew coconut oil was so complex!!

Looks like the KTC stuff I have used for cooking does have health benefits http://veganheath.info/ktc-coconut-oil, but perhaps the virgin oil has more?
