I'm not sure about the molasses, but the dose for coconut oil (Organic) is 1 tsp. per 10lbs.  Start with a low dose and work up to that...

I know that molasses is used for it's Vitamin/Trace Mineral Content, but not sure about anti-inflammatory properties....

If your 14 yr. old is really suffering, your Vet should prescribe Medication for Arthrititis....These natural remedies (Listed above) take a few weeks to get in the system....Then the Vet meds. can be cut down...Good luck....

I'm curious now.......I'll have to google the Molasses.......Karla
