Yes it is safe because coconut oil helps to support and maintain overall health in both humans and dogs. It contains Lauric acid which is a medium chain fatty acid that is also found in mother's milk. Lauric acid is the substance that prevents infants from getting viral, bacterial and protozoan infections and those same benefits seem to apply to dogs as well.
