Coconut oil for paws

Post by Eleanor on Tue Mar 04, 2014 2:15 pm

Dempsey's pads get quite dry and cracked, especially during and just after winter, so I've started using a small amount of coconut oil on them, which he loves! I was rubbing it in just now and he just laid there, purring, with his eyes shut. laughing

Yeah, my hands are really soft now! tongue Will probably use it for his ears at some point. Also put some oil onto his fur, as well as the bald spot on his tail, as it's getting a bit dry.

I wonder if you could call that "Male pattern baldness"?

Nah, he's just a mangy mutt! laughing

Yes. Yes, he is a tart! tongue Turns out he loves a good foot rub, although he wasn't too keen at first, when the oil was cold.

His coat's now very shiny and he doesn't smell like a fart anymore!
