Default Raw milk?

Does anyone have experience with giving raw cow's milk to their dog? I am curious after seeing an add selling it, claiming pets love it. I can't see how this would be natural as I cannot fathom a dog getting milk in the wild, but hey, what do I know.

The only milk products I give my dog are yogurt, and small amounts of cheese for training.

You know PERFECT!

The only milk that dogs need is their mothers until they are weaned. After that it is not a necessary part of the diet and can actually cause problems.

In fact, no animals - dogs, cats, PEOPLE - need milk after they are weaned.

animals can get milk from their mothers but once they're
weaned they don't get it. humans maybe the only ones
that drink milk once they're weaned.
