Adding Goat Milk To Your Pet's Diet Can Improve Their Health

Most pets aren’t getting enough moisture in their diets. Setting out a bowl of water for them to drink doesn’t necessarily solve the problem. Dogs’ and cats’ bodies are 65% moisture, and unlike us, they are designed to get their moisture from their food – not just from their drinking water.

Is your pet getting the moisture they need in their diet?

Most pets aren’t getting enough moisture in their diets. Setting out a bowl of water for them to drink doesn’t necessarily solve the problem. Dogs’ and cats’ bodies are 65% moisture, and unlike us, they are designed to get their moisture from their food – not just from their drinking water.

As with humans, water forms the basis for many functions in your pet’s body, assisting with the absorption of nutrients from their food. Water is also essential for circulation, cushioning the joints and spinal cord, waste removal, and much more. When your pet isn’t getting enough fluids, dehydration stresses their kidneys, possibly resulting in kidney disease and even kidney failure.

Ways to add moisture to your pet’s diet:

Frozen Formulas. All of our raw, frozen formulas include moisture. For example, our Raw Frozen Mix Chicken Formula contains 76% moisture, making it a great option for adding necessary fluids to your pet’s diet. Check out our other canine and feline raw frozen Formulas for other meal options with plenty of moisture.

Raw Goat Milk. It’s everything that kibble isn’t. Known as the universal milk, goat milk is easily absorbed by a variety of mammals. It not only adds great moisture to kibble (make a pet cereal!) or our Freeze-Dried Formulas, it also contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes, proteins, and fatty acids that contribute to your pet’s optimal health. Raw Goat Milk is 79% moisture.

How to approach a picky eater

What if your pet doesn’t like wet foods? Start by crumbling our Freeze-Dried Formula into a bowl. Serve it dry at first, and then slowly work your way into rehydrating it as directed on the back of the package. Over time, as you add slightly more water to each meal, you may be able to get your pet used to consuming a rehydrated diet.

By feeding your pet a diet that gets them the moisture they need, you’ll be protecting their kidneys, tissues, and many other systems for long, healthy life – just like any good pet parent should. Happy hydrating!
