This is a continuance of the original thread titled Coconut Oil by clc29...

I wanted to hear what everyone had to say about the results of using the coconut oil.

I originally posted to that thread about the brand I was using at the time.
I purchased "Goldern Barrel" coconut oil at the local natual food store.
16oz for about $4.00, no preservivatives,,A product of Good Foods INC 

I recently went to  another health food store and bought Natures Way Efa Gold Coconut Oil Prue Extra Virgin Organic.. I paid $23.95 for 32oz...

WoW!!! Not all coconut oils are created equal!!!,,,Natures Way brand is 100x better in taste and texture even the color is beautiful. Just thought I would pass on my experience and let others know..

Prince does super on the coconut oil ,,I love it too..

I am a huge fan of coconut oil. We had another thread on it a while back too. 
Definitely agree all are not equal. I am in the UK and the one I get now from Amazon is Biona, and the taste is truly coconutty. One of the things I found that it did was to regrow hair on my old girls elbow callouses, big ones, that she had had for years. The senior trainer at our club's jaw dropped when she saw  it, as she said it was uneard of to get hair to ever regrow there. I had tried loads of things over the years, nothing worked. But within a month or so of rubbing coconut oil on them every other day or so I noticed z fine down appearing. It then became real fur. They were real 'elephant' skin too. I dont do it often enough, but they are gradually becomi g smaller, as the fur grows over.  It reduced shedding too, and their coats are dense and shiny.
It also seems to make my old girl somewhat frisky,  She will become attracted to certain dogs and be very silly and invite them to play, she is over 10, and has never been very interested in other dogs, it is funny and rather charming. What it mainly tells me though is that she feels good!

Thanks for updating that, Ruger1.  I was just thinking about buying some coconut oil for the first time, because of all the raving people were doing. Your review is great and right on time!  

Abby... that localized rubbing tip might be good for my cat, too, I wonder.

Beetree, give it a try and let us know the results. What is the skin problem with your cat?
The good thing is that it is gentle enough for us to use as moisturiser, so will not do any harm. I have used it myself for moisturising, so many uses!
The trainer was so amazed she has asked me to write about it in our club mag, which reminds me.....I haven't done it yet!

Especially in

Not long after I posted the original thread I found a different brand of Coconut oil at Costco.
Its made by Carrington Farms.....100% Organic Extra Virgin.....unrefined and Cold pressed.
It cames in a 54 oz jar and cost about $16.00 if I remember right.....I bought 3 jars, so it's been a while....LOL.

I've had people stop me and ask what I feed my dog because his coat is amazing.
Cisco's orthopedic surgeon, who see's a lot of dogs, told me he'd never seen a German Shepherd with such a nice coat.

Needless to say...I'm totally sold on it.

Here's a recent picture........he has not has a bath in a while......and this picture has not been photo shopped.

I just started using it two weeks ago.  My dogs LOVE it.  I haven't noticed improvements yet but my dogs are very healthy already.  I use Nutiva extra virgin organic.  It's $27 for 54oz.  I've heard it can help with people hair too so I think once a week I'll put it in my hair while I'm working out (in my basement).
