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.
