Raw goat’s milk is a natural probiotic offering better digestibility of your pet’s food and it contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), which is found only in milk from grass-fed dairy animals. Studies have linked CLA with a lower risk of cancer. Raw Goat’s milk is also perfect for sensitive digestive systems including those dogs with irritable bowel systems and it’s a natural antihistamine and has anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce the effects of certain allergies.
A couple of common questions usually come up when you mention goat’s milk –
I thought dogs and cats couldn’t digest milk? Why raw goat’s milk and not cow’s milk? Well, dogs and cats can’t digest the cow’s milk we purchase in our grocery stores. It’s been pasteurized so it’s missing a key enzyme, lactase, that’s required to digest it and break down the lactose in the milk. The heat processing of pasteurization destroys lactase and that’s what makes it not appropriate for our pets. Raw Goat’s milk on the other hand is not processed and being a whole food contains many beneficial enzymes including lactase making it very easily assimilated by our pets. In fact, raw goat’s milk can be digested in as little as 20 minutes.
What about the safety of unpasteurized, raw goat’s milk for dogs and cats? Today’s certified raw milk is produced under stricter standards than pasteurized milk. Raw goat’s milk also contains naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein and fatty acids all easily assimilated by the body.herd of goats

Already feeding raw?
Just an ounce or two can be beneficial for you pet adding moisture and all of the other nutrients in the milk making your pet’s diet even more digestible.
