Cow milk and chicken fat

In India cow milk is considered as an ideal food for growing children.

Do cow milk help in the growth of young dogs as well?

If so how much is ideal?

I read in a review of dry dog foods that chicken fat is a good ingredient in dog food.

How is it different from other sources of fat? Does it enhance growth?

No, cow's milk is not suitable in most cases. Goat's milk however is easier to digest, but once the pup is over 8 weeks I don't think there is really any benefit to adding milk to their diet

Yes chicken fat is good for them

Maybe experiment with a small amount of Jersey cow milk, see how your dog responds but as far as I know human's are the only animal to ingest milk from another animal
