Building a better bowl 
Goats Milk  , known as the universal milk due to its digestibility for a wide variety of mammals—including dogs and cats! Not only is it digestible for our four-legged friends, but Goat Milk is packed with nutrients to help support digestion and immunity while adding a boost of hydration to your pet’s bowl. 
Why can’t I just use cow’s milk ?
How could something as normal and common as milk be bad for dogs? To understand why cow’s milk is not good for dogs, we have to look at what is done to it to make it safe for us.
There’s a reason we don’t drink milk straight from the cow. Partially because that sounds super gross, but mostly because it could make us sick. Fresh cow’s milk is loaded with bacteria that our dainty pups bodies just can’t handle. To break it down further, we need to talk about lactose and casein.
 
Lactose
 
Our milk is pasteurized. Pasteurization is a way to kill off any harmful bacteria in the milk. This is done by heating the milk to a temperature that the bacteria can’t survive. When you cook the milk to pasteurize it, you are killing off good bacteria and enzyme, as well as the harmful stuff. To break down lactose, a naturally occurring milk protein, dogs need the milk enzyme, called lactase. When the milk is cooked, that enzyme is eliminated, leaving lactose that is very difficult for your dog to digest.
Casein
There are two types of casein, A1 and A2 beta-casein. A1 casein is hard to digest and can be linked to allergies and digestive issues, while A2 is considered to be easier to breakdown, and therefore better for dogs and cats.
The protein in cow’s milk contains as much as 80% A1 beta-casein, which is another reason why many dogs react poorly to cow’s milk. 
The Benefits of Building a Better Bowl
 
Not only is goat’s milk safe for dog’s and cat’s, but it’s healthy and highly recommended! The biggest and most desirable benefit of goat’s milk is it’s digestive properties. Goat’s milk is loaded with probiotics that help to support digestion by increasing the population of healthy bacteria in your dog’s digestive tract.
Supporting your prts digestion helps to improve nutrient absorption, boosts their  immune system, and aids in filtering out toxins. In addition, goat’s milk also provides:
  • Moisture - vital to all systems in your dog's body
  • Calcium - component of bone density, strengthens muscle, and supports blood clotting
  • B vitamins - support a healthy metabolism, digestion, and hormone regulation
  • Vitamin A - maintains eye health and cell function
  • Protein - provides amino acids needed to run the whole body

Tips & tricks for using goats milk
Use it a a meal topper
Spruce up any diet by dousing it with a little bit of goat’s milk. This delicious dog cereal is a great way to add more moisture, probiotics, and flavor. Kibble diets benefit the most from this moisture boost, but goat's milk can also compliment a raw diet. 

 Rehydrating Freeze-Dried 
Instead of rehydrating your dog’s freeze-dried food with plain old water, use goat’s milk instead. The additional nutrition will bolster the meal. This is a great tip for picky pets who need a little more encouragement to maintain healthy eating habits, and those who would benefit from the digestive boost.
Make frozen dog treats (especially on a hot summer day!)
Use goat’s milk in your favourite frozen dog treat recipe. Goat’s milk can replace the more common base in frozen dog treats, yogurt. Mix it  with pureed fruit, dog-safe peanut butter, or bone broth for a tasty and icy snack!
Make a puppaccino!
Ingredients
  • 1 eggs white
  • 1/4 cup goat’s milk
  • 1/8 tsp (or less) of lemon juice

  1. In an electric mixture (or by hand if you’re Popeye), beat your egg white and lemon juice on high. This will take 3-5 minutes, at least.
