Raw goat's milk is especially good for pets if soured--allowed to curdle at room temperature. Only unpasteurized milk will sour; pasteurized milk will spoil if left out.
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.

|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.|

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

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?
