Or in the dog bowl.
A few weeks ago I snatched up this bag of pet company CocoTherapy‘s Coconut Chips from a local pet store with a really nice assortment.
CocoTherapy makes a line of coconut products for dogs, cats, and birds. Their products include these Coconut Chips and Coconut Oil. Coconut chips like these are simply dehydrated flakes of coconut.
Coconut is one of those random foods that I like to eat myself, but that I wasn’t sure was safe for dogs. Apparently, not only is it safe, it’s beneficial!
Coconut is a great source of fiber (even your pets need to stay regular!) and supports digestive health in your pet. It’s also packed with antioxidants and may assist in the maintenance of healthy skin and fur. (Check out all of the health benefits that CocoTherapy recognizes here.)
I like that CocoTherapy’s Coconut Chips come in a variety of shapes and sizes. As they suggest on their packaging, you can give the larger pieces as treats and sprinkle the smaller pieces on top of your dog’s food.
If you get a package with mostly larger pieces, they can be easily broken for your sprinkling pleasure.
I paid somewhere between $6 and $7 for a 3-ounce bag of Coconut Chips, but Teton only gets them sprinkled on his food a few times a week, so while it may seem on the more expensive side, I’m comfortable with the price since he won’t go through it as quickly as some of his other treats.
CocoTherapy’s Coconut Chips are simple, healthy, and fun. I’m not sure that I’ll buy them again, but that’s only because I want to figure out if it’s worth my time to dehydrate them myself. I’ll keep you posted on my experience once I give it a shot!
