Pet Coco is a health-giving and immune-boosting health tonic for pets. Made with all the goodness of virgin coconut oil and turmeric – two of nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants and immune-boosting agents.
How it works:
Pet Coco is a scientifically-created health tonic, made from cold-processed virgin coconut oil and turmeric extracts – both of which have amazing health benefits by themselves, but when combined, are even more powerful for general health and wellness.
Virgin coconut oil is nature’s richest source of medium-chain triglycerides – a unique group of fats that break down in the digestive system (animal or human) into powerful energy-boosting and immune-boosting compounds. The main component of virgin coconut oil – Lauric Acid (52%) is a known anti-microbial. The other two important medium chain fats found in virgin coconut oil are Capric and Capryllic Acid. These are isolated and administered for their anti-fungal benefits, and are known to fight thrush, candida and yeast infections. In pets too, virgin coconut oil helps boost energy, and reduce the deposition of unwanted fat.
Turmeric is a proven and effective anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-septic agent. It is generally known to be safe for pets as well, and many veterinarians recommend the inclusion of turmeric in diets of pets with cancer. Now the amazing thing about turmeric, is that it is better absorbed in the animal gut (that means us too), when it is administered through fats.
Pet Coco is recommended by veterinarians, and approved under the FSSAI (the Indian food authority). Unlike most other supplements, your pet will actually like consuming it. And don’t worry, it does not have ANY artificial taste enhancers, vitamins, colours or anything remotely in the realm of synthetic additives.
Instructions for use:
- * Add Pet Coco into your pet’s food, once a day
- * For small and medium-sized dogs (below 30 kgs): start with 1 teaspoon and gradually increase to 2 teaspoons gradually
- * For large dogs (above 30 kgs): start with 1 tablespoon a day, increase to 2 gradually

The journey to Pet Coco:
We had a 11-year old dog called Chuti (which means clever girl in Kannada), at the Coconess Farm. This was 2010. She began to develop tumours around her breast area, and on one hind leg. We got them surgically removed once, but the doctor said she’s too old to take these kind of shocks, and recommended we just let her live her life out. She also had sebhorrea – a kind of smelly dermatitis that affects some dogs. No treatment really helps with it, and the dog suffers the itching, scratching and general discomfort.
This was the time when we were in the research phase at Coconess, and were making small batches of virgin coconut oil at the farm from our coconuts. So we began to give Chuti a teaspoon of Coconess mixed with turmeric every day. In a month, her skin was better – the itching was under control, and the tumours had stopped growing. We realised that whenever we stopped giving her the oil, her itching would come back. Deciding that it would not harm her, we continued to give her Coconess. The tumours reduced in size, her wounds healed, and she was just as aggressive with the other female dogs as in her hey day! When doctor visited, he was seriously amazed with the improvement in her condition, and asked if we could make some for another patient of his. That’s where Pet Coco really began. Chuti lived on for two years after that.
