If the milking practices are sanitary, it's unlikely that disease-causing pathogens will be in the milk. But even if there were, those bugs doesn't normally make dogs sick.
Does curdling it make it last longer? What about curdling it makes it better for them? I haven't seen anything on this yet.

Oh really...my pit-lab mix has some clear the room gas. I will have to put her on it too.

Melissa98409 do you worry about ecoli, salmonella, and the other icky things that I am reading about raw milk with dogs? Or are their systems so different from ours that these things are not a worry for them.

Bear L I feed raw goat milk regularly to my dogs. They love it! Unpasteurized supposedly retain more nutrients because they aren't cooked to death by the pasteurization process, for example live enzymes.

Melissa98409 Good point. I hadn't thought about the salt and sugar aspect of canned milk. Thank you.

Pax8 My dog loves his goat milk. I don't really measure it. I just splash it over his food occasionally. He has had unpasteurized and pasteurized, and I don't think I've noticed any difference.

For canned, I would keep an eye out for extra salts and sugars.

Raw Goat's Milk

Where do you stand on feeding your dog raw goat's milk? Is anyone doing this? I am just starting my research on it and it looks like there are a ton of good benefits from it, however, the whole idea on unpasteurized milk is a bit frightening to me. Can you get the same benefits from pasteurized goats milk? If so, is canned better or worse?
