    Improves Digestion:

    - Improves digestion - increases nutrient absorption - Helps with colitis and inflammatory bowl syndrome - Reduces or eliminates bad breath - Helps with coughing

    "Superfood" Benefits:

    - Assists with weight loss - Powerful antibacterial, antiviral and andti-fungal agents - Balances insulin and promotes normal thyroid function - Helps prevent or control diabetes - Aids arthrites and ligament problems - Helps prevent infection and disease - Aids in increasing energy



    Start slow!! Begin with a tiny amount! Your dog needs time for their body to adjust to the addition of coconut oil to their diet.  If you start with a  large amount of coconut oil, side effects can include diarrhea and greasy stools.

    Start With Small Amounts:

    - 1/4 teaspoon per day for small dogs and puppies - 1 teaspoon for large dogs (or 1/4 teaspoon or less if your dog has a sensitive stomach) 

    After you've let their body adjust, a general guidline for dogs is:

    - About 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight daily - or - 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds


    Coconut oil can also be applied directly to your dogs coat and skin.   A coconut oil treatment will leave your dogs skin incredibly soft, but it will aslo make it healthier.  A coconut oil skin treatment about once a week can make a big difference in the health of your dogs skin and nails.  

    For good results, apply to the skin and let the oil absorb for about 5 minutes.  After the 5 minutes lightly rinse, if you feel you haven't removed the excess oil, finish up with a light application of shampoo and rinse again.

    SmartyPaws is in the process of developing its very own calendar for 2015. We have been taking wonderful pictures of some of the dogs that come to Smartypaws and want to share this with you. 

    If you have a business that you would like to advertise in our calendar, please contact us as soon as possible. We need to send our final proof to the printer soon You may add a coupon or special offer with your ad. We are looking for business card size ads. The price of each ad will be $50.00. It's a great way to get into the hands of other dog lovers and promote your business. It does not have to be a dog related type of business. Contact Donna Foreman at 702-396-8501.
