How To Make Refreshing Raw Goat Milk Treats

Are you ready to whip up some refreshing raw goat milk treats for your dogs?

They’re SO easy to make and a hit with my pups Missy & Buzz!

The Benefits Of Raw Goat Milk For Dogs

The reason why I started adding raw goat milk to the pups’ menu was because it’s also known as “universal milk”.

That means it’s digestible by most mammals and comes with a ton of health benefits.

Unlike cow milk, it’s much lower in lactose.

Besides being easily digestible, it also relieves joint pain and destroys yeast. As such, it helps tremendously in dealing with arthritis related symptoms, fighting off allergies and yeast infections. 

Buzz used to get yeast infections in his ears back in our kibble feeding days.

Now that he eats raw dog food, he’s no longer bothered by them.

What’s in raw goat milk for dogs?

Raw goat milk contains protein, fatty acids (omega 3 & 6), vitamins (A, B 2, C, & D), and minerals/electrolytes/trace elements (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, copper & zinc).

All of these make it a superb natural probiotic!

Now back to the treats! I used a quart of raw goat milk, filled a few fun silicone molds with it, and then transferred them into the freezer.

That’s it!

Once frozen, they make the perfect treat for a hot summer’s day. It’s been crazy hot here in NC lately with temps in the upper 90s that felt like in the 100s, meaning the pups were very grateful for their frozen goodies.

How Much Raw Goat Milk Can Dogs Have?

Dogs can have a certain amount of raw goat milk based on their weight:

Under 20 lbs = 2 ounces

Between 20-40 lbs = 4 ounces

Between 40-60 lbs = 6 ounces

From 60-80 lbs  = 8 ounces

Over 80 lbs = 10 ounces

Since Missy weighs a little over 50 lbs, she can have 6 daily ounces of raw goat milk. Buzz can have a little more since he weighs a little over 70 lbs, which translates into 8 daily ounces.

Steve’s Real Food

You can’t get raw goat MILK from Steve’s Real Food, but they do sell CannaGurt.

That’s a raw goat milk YOGURT base with added hemp oil. It’s not quite the same, but it sounds intriguing, too!

Fun fact: I actually picked up a can of evaporated goat milk at Walmart the other week, but of course that kind is far from the raw deal. I’m not even sure yet what I’ll use it for, lol! I guess I was so surprised to see that Walmart carries any kind of goat milk that I just had to put it into my shopping cart.

Raw Goat Milk For Dogs: Bottom Line

Raw goat milk is known as one of the most complete, natural foods. As such, it’s an easily digestible source of probiotics for dogs (& cats as well).

Both pups really love it, regardless of whether I add it to their meals or offer it as a treat.
