My guy Diesel has THE worst seasonal allergies. The poor guy rubs his face raw and stops playing to scratch himself. While we have him on the best diet (raw and grain free) possible, he still suffers from these flare ups. This is how he looked last week: Just look at his sweet face... He has scratched the area around his eyes raw. It hurts to just look at. The poor boy doesn't complain, but boy does he look pitiful. And, he doesn't want to sit for a photograph. I'm going to attribute that to pure embarrassment over the way his face looks. I know I wouldn't want to have a picture taken if my face was this inflamed. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that he's a dog.         I had been mentioning to AdreAnne how badly I felt for him and wished there was something more I could do. Enter Cocotherapy. This amazing product can be used both topically and ingested. It is an all natural, human grade product that helps with skin and coat, improves digestion, and reduces allergic reactions.  Cocotherapy has these proven benefits: Clears up skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact dermatitis, and itchy skin Makes coat sleek and glossy Deodorizes doggy odor Reduces bad breath Regulates and balance insulin and thyroid levels Helps with arthritis or ligament problems Speeds healing of cuts, wounds, hot spots, and insect bites & stings when applied topically Gently elevates the metabolism to help provide a higher level of energy   We carry both the Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and the Organic Coconut Chips at both locations. I have ended up using the oil on his face for about a week and feeding it to him as a "treat". He loves the taste and laps it right up. This is Diesel today: This is after one week of use. Notice how the redness and swelling have gone down considerably. Notice how he has teeny tiny hairs growing back. Notice how he doesn't want to sit still for a new photograph. I'm going to attribute this to embarrassment over all the fuss I'm making. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that he's a dog. He still clearly has a way to go with healing; however, if Cocotherapy can offer him this amount of relief in one short week, it is definitely worth it's weight in gold. I wish I had known about it sooner, which is why I'm letting you know. If your dog is suffering, there is no need. The sooner you can start cocotherapy, the better.
