Coconut oil dog treats can also be great for a dog’s skin and fur. I know my puppy gets really dry skin every spring, so treats like this help him from getting so dry. While the coconut oil may be helpful for dogs, you should still limit how much they get. It is high in calories and fat, and typically dogs should only get 1/4 teaspoon up to 1 Tablespoon worth a day depending on their size and health. Talk to your vet for more information about what is appropriate for your dog.
Pineapple and coconut are both safe for dogs to eat (minus allergies, etc) and make a great option for dog treats! Find our human Pina Colada inspired recipes here to get in on the tropical flavor fun!
This is the dog silicone mold that I used for these pineapple coconut dog treats. It comes with one paw shaped and one bone shaped mold. The paws are larger, so you could use that one instead for bigger treats but will get a smaller number of treats from the same recipe. You could also use any ice cube or silicone mold that you have.
Frozen dog treats are great in warmer climates and months to help keep your puppy cool. I recommend keeping the treats in the freezer so they do not melt. Since they are mainly coconut oil, I have found that coconut oil is solid when it is colder here but liquid in the warmer months. And if your dog loves chewing on cold treats like ice cubes, they will love these Frozen Pina Colada Dog Treats!
- Measure out your coconut oil either into a small cup/bowl or a larger measuring cup (such as a 1 cup measuring cup).
- Microwave the coconut oil to melt it in 30 second intervals.
- Prepare your silicone mold by laying it on a small baking sheet or something else that is stiff for easy transfer to the refrigerator.
- Dice up the pineapple so it is small enough to fit in the molds.
- Sprinkle the shredded coconut and pineapple into each mold.
- Pour the melted coconut oil into each mold, up to the top.
- Transfer the treats to the refrigerator (approximately 4 hours) or freezer (approximately 1 hour) until set.
- Pop the dog treats out of the mold and store in the freezer in a container or bag. Storing frozen will ensure the oil does not melt at room temperature, which especially happens in warmer climates and months.
