CocoTherapy-Coconut Oil and Coconut Chips

Have you heard about Coconut oil and coconut chips?

Whole Dog Journal released an article some time ago extolling the benefits of coconut for pets. It has been widely known with trainers and show dog owners as the "miracle oil".

What makes Coconut oil and coconut chips so special?

CocoTherapy Virgin Organic Coconut Oil clears Up conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact dermatitis, and itchy skin,makes coats sleek and glossy,deodorizes dog odor,reduces bad breath,regulates and balances insulin and thyroid levels, helps with arthritis or ligament problems as fatty acids are good for anti-inflammation ,speeds healing of cuts, wounds, hot spots, and insect bites and stings (when applied topically).

Coconut oil and chips contain lauric acid, which is a medium chain fatty acid and is what many experts feel is responsible for such great health benefits from organic virgin coconut oil and chips. The only other abundant source of lauric acid is human breast milk. When Lauric acid is synthesized by the human or animal body, it produces the same substance, monoglyceride monolaurin that keeps infants from getting viral, bacterial, or protozoal infections. Lauric acid, synthesized into monolaurin is used to fight and destroy viruses and various pathogenic bacteria, protecting your pets against infection and boosting his immune system. Coconut oil also contains capric and caprylic acid, which have similar properties and are best known for their antifungal effects. Like lauric acid, capric acid can also help balance insulin levels.

The Philippines is the world's largest producer of coconuts and the people of the Philippines have known about the benefits of coconuts for years. The Philippinos have been cooking with it, feeding it to their pets and giving the shavings of the coconuts to their livestock. Their animals have healthy, shiny coats.

Holistic veterinarians are using the CocoTherapy organic virgin coconut oil for many different problems. Everything from allergies to hypothyroidism.

CocoTherapy virgin coconut oil and coconut chips come from fresh organically grown coconuts, grown in a USDA certified organic coconut farm. Furthermore, they are harvested and manufactured under the highest standards in the industry. CocoTherapy is 100% natural, human-grade, and ensures pet owners that they are giving their pets the best coconut oil and coconut flakes available.

Organic virgin coconut oil is made from fresh coconuts using lower temperatures, keeping it raw. The only way to tell if coconut oil is truly raw is by taste and smell. Raw coconut oil retains its naturally occurring phytochemicals and has a distinct, mild coconut flavor and aroma. CocoTherapy coconut oil is guaranteed to be one of the highest quality coconut oil available on the market today. From the careful selection of the coconuts used, to the methods used in creating the final product, it is the purest, freshest, premium quality human-grade oil available. You can taste and smell the difference!

Japan's Cat Island survives earthquake but need help

This is a repost of article on Analysis by Jennifer Vega
Tashirojima, otherwise known as Japan's "Cat Island" due to its numerous feline inhabitants, is intact after the recent devastating 9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami, according to Japan earthquake animal rescue support. Hoowever, like so many others devastated by the disaster, both the human and feline residents of the island need help.
The small island in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi Prefecture, is home to at least 100, mostly elderly, people and many more cats, which are valued for their beauty, companionship, and ability to keep the rodent population down in this fishing area. A shrine dedicated to cats exists in the middle of the island -- a favorite of tourists and feline lovers worldwide.

There was concern that the island and its residents did not survive the earthquake, aftershocks, and tsunami, but Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support posted this at Facebook yesterday:
Just to give everyone an update on Tashirojima, the cat island. The people and cats are safe but short of food. A volunteer looked into transporting food by boat, but there is too much debris in the water. A helicopter is the only way. The army will probably get a helicopter ready soon so we are looking into the possibility of asking them to take cat food too.

Teaming up with another organization, Animal Friends Niigata, workers with the Japanese rescue and support team are now in Sendai, near where the earthquake was centered.
SLIDE SHOW: Japan: Before and After the Disaster
Here you can see them preparing for the trip, loading a van with kennels, food, leashes and capturing equipment.
They reported encountering at least one woman, who refused to evacuate because officials would not let her bring her dog, Yosuke, with her. She stayed with Yosuke in her shaking house for three days, but thankfully both are OK. She was very relieved to encounter the rescuers.
I think many of us who love our pets can empathize with such individuals. This latest disaster is a reminder to be prepared for emergencies. If you have pets, please consider following the recommendations mentioned in this U.S. Department of Homeland Security brochure: Download Petsthree days, but thankfully both are OK. She was very relieved to encounter the rescuers.

Attrocity at South Carolina animal shelter

Repost of Article By Jeff Campbell of WCNC-TV
Posted: Monday, Mar. 07, 2011
S.C. sheriff looks into dog deaths at CHESTERFIELD, S.C. animal shelter
The Chesterfield County sheriff has launched an investigation into allegations that county employees shot and killed as many as 22 dogs at the county's animal shelter.
Deborah Farhi, a volunteer at the shelter, brought the allegations to light on Friday after visiting the animal control facility.
She told WCNC-TV, the Observer's news partner, she became concerned when she noticed that several of the dog crates were empty.
She asked an inmate who works at the shelter why the dogs were missing and, according to Farhi, the inmate told her that the dogs had been shot and killed at a landfill across the street from the shelter.
"I can't believe that they would do that," Farhi said. "I can't believe it. We can't let this happen anymore. This has to stop today."
According to Farhi, she and two other members of the Paws & Claws Animal Rescue Group went to the landfill and dug up the remains of two dogs.
She took pictures of the landfill site, including one that shows what appears to be blood around a dog's ear, as well as another picture that shows one bullet on the ground.
They dug up the remains of two dogs, but Farhi believes more were shot. She told WCNC that an inmate working at the shelter told her 22 dogs were killed.
"I went from crying uncontrollably to shaking in anger. I was so upset, I thought my head was going to explode," Farhi said.
Farhi's pictures of the dead dogs were sent to other pet lovers and other rescue groups. The pictures were also posted on Facebook, quickly an backlash.
Officials at the animal control shelter told WCNC their employees have done nothing wrong.
Employees at the shelter are under the direction of the sheriff's office, and as a result, both the Solicitor's Office and the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division have been notified.Read more:

9 Surprising Facts About Animal Intelligence

This is a repost of an interesting blog post by a fellow animal lover:

Animals are a lot smarter than you know. They don't speak English, and they don't burst into song or action as soon as we turn our backs; nature, sadly, is not a Disney movie. But many of them do display intelligence and a desire to learn, as well as an ability to apply past experiences to present moments and future expectations. The gap between human intelligence and that of animals might be so wide as to be insurmountable, but it's not quite as big as we used to think it was. As anyone who's ever had a pet can tell you, animals are a lot sharper than you might want to believe. In fact, they're a whole lot like us.
Pigs are often as smart as dogs: To a degree, that's a little misleading: animal intelligence is extremely difficult to compare across species, and a large part of what we perceive in dogs and pigs as intellect is really a combination of instinctual behaviors and an ability to be trained and domesticated. Still, there are some broad similarities between the animals, including an ability to reason with simple puzzles or escape from closed areas. Pigs have been known to figure out how to open their pen gates and then stage a prison break for the rest of the animals. Pigs can also understand and use mirrors, something that's beyond many animals.
Elephants mourn the deaths of their own: Elephants are the only animals who have been observed to have legitimate death rituals. They don't just take note of other dead elephants; they actively mourn them and often cover their bodies with branches and leaves. Elephants will often hold vigils for days over the bodies of their fallen relatives, leaving only to get food or water and then coming right back to stand guard over the body. This isn't just a reflex or a search for some pleasurable condition; this is evidence of something larger and potentially much more complicated at work. Elephants act almost like families.
Dogs get jealous: Dog owners have long noticed and joked about canine behavior that looks a little like jealousy, e.g., the way a dog will bark when its owners embrace each other and seem to ignore the dog. But a 2008 study by Austrian scientists showed that dogs really do feel a primitive form of jealousy. After giving a pair of dogs treats when they performed handshakes, scientists stopped giving one of the dogs the treats, and that dog quickly stopped playing along and even expresses stress and physical annoyance when the other animal kept getting fed. We've always projected emotions onto our pets, but the truth is that they've got their own emotions to express.
Dolphins use culture for learning just like we do: Dolphins have long been regarded as some of the smartest, friendliest animals on the planet. They've also been observed acting altruistically, helping human swimmers ward off shark attacks. But a few years ago, researchers discovered that dolphins are remarkably adept at using tools, and moreover, that dolphins actually pass their knowledge through a training process. That's a huge thing to learn, and the first time any evidence of what's called "cultural transmission" was discovered in an ocean-dwelling mammal. Dolphins in Australia would break pieces of sponge from the seabed and use them on their noses as tools in the foraging process. Scientists learned that those dolphins using the sponges were maternally related, meaning they had passed the knowledge through a family line.
Crows remember faces: Studies conducted recently at the University of Washington revealed that crows have better memory and flock-wide communication skills than people originally suspected. Scientists donned special masks (modeled after cavemen) and then caught and released several birds, after which they would wear the masks while strolling through campus on a route past the locations where the birds had been caught. Crows would call out and squawk at them, and over time, more and more of them would swoop down to scold them or sound an alarm for others. In other words, the crows remembered the face of the man who had put them in danger and shouted out a warning for other crows whenever they saw him reappear, and they did this repeatedly over at least two years.
Rats have dreams (if not aspirations): In 2001, researchers at MIT implanted electrodes into the hippocampi of several rats and monitored their neuron activity as they ran mazes and ate treats. They then monitored the rats' brains while the animals slept and discovered that similar areas fired up when the rats hit REM sleep. Comparing the info showed that the rats' brains were essentially replaying the events of their day, and in some instances, scientists were able to say what specific part of each maze the rats were dreaming about at a given moment based on their brain activity. Researchers later found that rats also dream about their daily activities during slow-wave sleep, the later stages of REM sleep. Granted, they don't have much of an exciting day to dream about, but it's shocking to realize that their brains, like ours, often just regurgitate the day's events when asleep.
Parrots are about as smart as young children: After gathering information for decades, scientists came to the conclusion in 2006 that parrots are generally on par with 5-year-old humans when it comes to basic intelligence, though their language skills only really compete with 2-year-olds. In other words, they can identify hundreds of objects from their daily lives and respond to simple questions, though the ability to form complex sentences is beyond them. Alex, an African gray parrot in the study, was able to do basic math, identify colors, and tell researchers what he wanted to do with his day.
Apes use tools and share that knowledge with each other: As chronicled in the documentary Ape Genius, apes are so much smarter than we often give them credit for being. They aren't just our closest living relative; they're actually known to use tools for living and fashion spears for hunting, just like our primitive ancestors. There are still, obviously, major things that separate us from apes, including the ability to regulate our emotions and form advanced cultures based on common emotional ideals. But apes mirror humans in their willingness to cooperate on major projects like seeking food and making shelter, which puts them closer to us, even if permanently removed.
Cats make memories for life: Just about every memory a cat makes is one it makes for life. This means that its experiences as a kitten will play a pivotal role in shaping what kind of personality it develops later on. Positive encounters with people and other animals (like dogs) will generally make for a friendlier cat, while abuse and other negative experiences will make the animal more skittish. Cats are already prone to flight, so an early encounter with a mean dog or horrid owner will only heighten those responses and make the cat believe that all dogs or people are dangers. It's up to owners to be responsible and demonstrate loving care for the cat from birth.
