Raw Goat Milk for Dogs and Cats
by Katie Allan (http://www.agirlandherhusky.com)
One of the most popular items in our stores is our raw goat milk. Raw goat milk has many nutritional benefits for your pets.
Why give your dog raw goat milk? Raw goat milk is a natural source of probiotics and is easily digestible. Even many dogs with sensitive stomachs and digestive issues can handle goat milk. Raw goat milk is also packed with nutrients like vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein, and fatty acids. Raw goat milk can also help your dog with several different chronic conditions, such as liver disease, kidney disease, kidney stones, diabetes, GI disease, brain and nerve disorders, and heart disease.
I also tried raw goat milk with my own two dogs, Gracie and Echo.
What did Echo and Gracie think of the raw goat milk? I was unsure of how they would react to the milk since I had never given them any kind of liquid besides water. I was mostly expecting Echo to like it since he likes everything, but Gracie was a little more picky. She ended up loving the milk! She even licked her bowl clean and went over to see if Echo left any in his bowl. Not only was it good for them, but it was a yummy treat too!
We sell various brands of raw goats milk at The Puppy Pantry, with each brand being a little different from the other.
Steve’s Real Food’s Raw Goat Milk Yogurt has chia seeds and coconut flour added in. According to Steve’s Real Food, “Chia is a superfood, full of protein, Omega 3 healthy fats, and fiber, as well as being high in manganese, calcium, and phosphorous.” We also sell Steve’s Real Food’s freeze dried goat milk line, Enhance. The Enhance line has three formulas- CannaGurt with added hemp protein and hemp oil to help with seizures, anxiety, pain, cancer, cognitive issues, and loss of appetite, DogNog with added whole eggs, coconut flour, cranberry, turmeric, yucca, and bromelain to help with mobility, allergies, and inflammatory diseases, and CarnaForage with added coconut flour, spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro, dandelion, and milk thistle to help with digestion issues, pancreatitis, and GI tract inflammation.
Answers Raw Goat milk has raw honey and organic cinnamon, which can help with inflammation and allergies.
Primal’s Raw Goat Milk has organic cinnamon, organic ginger, and organic turmeric added into their milk, which can help with inflammation, digestion, and cancer. Primal’s Raw Goat Milk has the benefits of antibacterial/antifungal ingredients with antioxidants and detoxifiers.
All three brands have probiotics, which boost your pet’s immune system and help support healthy digestion.
