Raw goat’s milk is one of the most complete foods on earth.  Full of trace minerals, vitamins, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein and fatty acids, unpasturized goat’s milk is incredibly easy for our dogs to digest and utilize.  Even dogs who have a hard time digesting dairy products derived from cow’s milk can do extremely well on milk from a goat.  With fat molecules that are 1/5th the size of those found in bovine milk, digestion happens in as little as 20 minutes.

goat milk Three Great Reasons to Add Raw Goats Milk to your Dogs DietHere are three reasons that you should supplement your dog’s diet with goat’s milk:

1.  Great for Digestion

Raw goat’s milk is perfect for dogs who suffer from any number of digestive issues.  Let’s face it, some dogs just have sensitive stomachs.  Whether raw, cooked or kibble fed, some dogs simply cannot digest their food well.  The result of this can range from an inability to properly assimilate nutrients to gas and loose stools on a regular basis.  Chock full of probiotics and enzymes, raw goat’s milk can assist your sensitive dog in beating the symptoms of an underachieving digestive system.  Raw goat’s milk helps to wipe out bad bacterias in your dog’s system and repopulate it with beneficial bacterias.  This not only makes it invaluable for dogs with sensitive digestive tracts, but also for dogs that have been subjected to various antibiotics.

2. Lessens mucous and inflammation

Raw goat’s milk contains both anti-mucous and anti-inflammatory properties.  This makes it a perfect supplement for dogs who suffer from allergies of any sort, including food and environmental allergies.  Raw goat’s milk can help to make the steroids that you are forced to give your pet a thing of the past.  As a natural anti-inflammatory, you can be certain that the side effects of drugs such as prednisolone and cortisone will never be an issue.

3.  Super Immune Booster

Raw goat’s milk has tremendous immune boosting properties.  By virtue of the sheer amount of vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and fatty acids, the overall health of your dog is greatly enhanced.  Raw goat’s milk has been shown to help fight any number of common ailments such as kidney issues, cancers, liver disease, diabetes, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, ulcers and various brain and nervous system disorders.  Goat’s milk carries significantly higher amounts of calcium, vitamin B-6, vitamin A, potassium, niacin and the anti-oxidant selenium, than cow’s milk all while being FAR easier to digest and utilize.

Whether your dog is fed a raw diet, cooked diet or kibble diet, supplementing raw goat’s milk can help to keep your best friend as healthy as can be, the natural way.

Daycare Tough Toys – Our High 5

by admin on November 3, 2013

Dog Approved Toys that Last!

Bumi Daycare Tough Toys   Our High 5

So what makes a toy Daycare tough? They need to be soft enough to be mouth friendly but hard enough to withstand pulling, tugging, chewing and ripping as well as withstanding hot and cold weather. The toys that last with minimal damage have very few sticking out parts or mouth sized holes. And oddly, the toys need to be brightly colored so that they get picked up on lawn mowing day and don’t get chopped up. The brightness also helps them to be seen in the grass, mud and snow so that the dogs can find and play with them.

Now while toughness is certainly a requirement in a daycare toy, there are a few other factors which make a toy tops at our daycare. Daycare toys must be non-toxic. While they’re not meant to be ingested, many toys invariably get pieces chewed off of them and swallowed. Second, the toys must be interesting. If none of the dogs want to play with them, they are of little use to us. And finally, they need to be appropriate to the size of the dog they interest and the activity they are meant to be involved in. A big hard ball doesn’t cut it for the small dog at daycare who wants to play fetch.

So what are our five top choices? hurley Daycare Tough Toys   Our High 5
