Is bacon grease good for dogs

I recently got an ad for a pet food recipe containing bacon grease as a flavoring.

My dog is a 7 lb. French Bulldog and the product description said that this would help to promote a healthy heart and liver. Since the dog doesn't like cheese or any of that kind of thing, I assumed it was a pretty healthy food. It smells so much like bacon that I thought it would be good for her. I went to get it from the store but they said it was out of stock. I then asked the store clerk how it worked. She explained to me that they mix the bacon grease with the meat and then use it as flavoring.

Are there any other ways to use bacon grease to help my dog and what do you think about the claims?

I think the best use for it is as a replacement for regular canola oil for canines (if the dog is still getting canola oil as a secondary oil source, not just added on top of the fat diet). I use bacon grease on my dog's food to coat the food and keep the oil from going rancid. It will act as a preservative, so I don't have to worry about adding some kind of preservative to my dog's food to prevent it from going rancid and going bad. In my own dog's food I find the regular canola oil gets too rancid and it makes him sick when he eats it. I also mix the bacon grease with the meat, and then I sprinkle the mixture on top of the meat. It makes for a much better tasting dog food. If you just have a regular bacon grease that you can buy, I would get it, but if you're going to mix it with the meat, I would mix your bacon grease with your regular fat (bacon grease plus canola oil together) and then just make your dog's food with it. It's so much easier to use the bacon grease in its pure form (like what you would put in a pan for frying), rather than mixing it with the fat.

If you find you can't use it as a dog food preservative, you could also just use it on your dog to coat the skin to make it easier for them to absorb it. You would have to make sure you were not overdoing it and causing your dog to get a sunburn on the surface of his skin. I'd use it in small amounts though.

To be honest, I've never tried it for myself, but I would think that it wouldn't have the same effect on humans that it does on dogs, because I don't think that dogs actually absorb fats from their food the same way that humans do. Dogs absorb fat via the lymphatic system, not via their gut. I don't think you could expect the same effect in humans. I don't know how effective it would be as a fat blocker.

What do you think? Is it something you would use?

Yeah, I wouldn't either, and it wouldn't be a first thing I'd try. But it'd still be a good thing to have around, since I think it is a good way to keep fats and salts from getting in the nasties' way.

I would think that it would have the same effect in dogs as it does in people. The fact that dogs absorb fats via the lymphatic system, rather than by using their intestines, I don't think they would absorb as many fats, so I don't think that using it as a dog food preservative would be a bad idea.

Hah! I thought you might think that. :)

One thing that occurred to me when I did the research for this article is that the salt in the preservative helps to remove odors from your dog's breath. So, it works, in this way, by the same principle as baking soda in cleaning - helps to remove odors.

I like to use it on my dogs' paws, too - it really does help to keep their paws from drying out, so they don't lick their paws so much.

    This magnificent idea, by the way, just falls

    In my opinion, this is the wrong path.

    It's not quite what I need.

    You have hit the mark. In it something is also to me your idea is pleasant. I suggest to take out for the general discussion.
