Can I use MCT Oil instead of Hemp Seed Oil?
Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fatty acids derived from various plant-based oils, including coconut oil. MCTs are “good” fat that provide several benefits, including being a source of fuel and energy, to our furry friends.
MCT Oil Improves Skin Health
If your dog suffers from skin problems, such as hot spots or even skin allergies, apply MCT oil topically. Otherwise, add it to their food bowl to give their skin health a boost.
MCT Oil Improves Digestion
MCT Oil supports better Brain Functioning
While the aging process naturally impacts a dog’s energy levels and cognitive skills, research suggests that the MCTs found in coconut oil can improve both brain energy and mental function in older dogs.
MCT Oil Decreases Obesity and increases energy levels
The fatty acids in MCT oil are easily converted into energy which speeds up the metabolism. This all adds up to faster fat burning and more efficient calorie burning. Obesity be gone with you!
