Giving Goat Milk To Your Dog

For Dog Owners, Breeders & Vets: Giving Goat Milk to Your Dog

Dogs can be just as sensitive as people to cow milk, so goat milk can be a great option to try if your dog experiences digestive issues after lapping up his or her milk. Goat milk offers a whole lot of nutrition – like vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, protein, and fatty acids – to help your dog stay strong and healthy.

Our whole goat milk powder is uniquely fortified with Quatrefolic, a bioactive folate, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. For Vitamin D in particular, supplementing your dog’s diet might be worthwhile. The amounts found in regular dog food is sufficient to prevent rickets, but may not be enough to prevent other diseases such as skin tumors, lymphoma and kidney disease. Recently, new research is emerging discovering a link between low stores of Vitamin D in dogs and cancer as well as other diseases. Unlike in humans, where we can obtain adequate levels of Vitamin D from the sun, in dogs the primary source of Vitamin D is diet, via commercial dog food. 


Non-GMO Whole Goat Milk Powder

For a delicious dog treat, sprinkle our goat milk powder over wet or dry food once daily according to your dog’s weight.
