Marvelous Milk - the merits of adding goat milk to your pets' diet
Updated: Jun 30
Oh goat milk, I love this stuff. And so do Ruby & Tonks! I use it to make pupsicles, as an ingredient in treats, and mixed into their regular meals. Here are my top 5 favorite things about raw goat milk:
It’s a Universal Milk. Goat milk can be absorbed by most mammals, so both dogs & cats can reap the benefits of it’s highly biologically available nutrients. When I feed it, I know Ruby & Tonks are getting tons of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, proteins, and fatty acids.
It bolsters the digestive system. Goat milk soothes the stomach lining, and is chock full of probiotics that absorb within minutes; way faster than pills or powders.
It alleviates allergies. Goat milk contains caprylic acid, a natural yeast destroyer. Less yeast means fewer ear infections, hot spots, and way less itchiness in general.
It relieves arthritis and joint pain. Goat milk contains enzymes that ease inflammation and improve circulation, giving your pets a little extra pep in their step.
It adds moisture to a dry diet. Dogs & cats are designed to get the majority of the moisture they need from the food they eat. Adding goat milk to kibble ensures that they get enough, even when plenty of fresh water is available.
Bonus Benefit: Primal Pet Foods Raw Goat Milk also contains organic turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon for extra anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial support!
