Raw milk is excellent for pets! Most dog and cat parents have been warned to never give their cat or dog milk as it will give them digestive issues or dreaded diarrhea. There is a vast difference between what you find in our freezer at our store and what you purchase at the grocery store. Currently, in the State of Michigan (and many other states), it is illegal to purchase raw milk for human consumption. You may have bought into a cow or goat share with a local farmer that will net you the “real deal”.
What happens with our milk at the grocery store? All milk at the grocery store has undergone a process of heated pasteurization. This process completely depletes the vitamin, minerals, and naturally occurring digestive enzymes of the milk. These harsh processes no longer make it a “raw milk” leaving it hollow from nutrient depletion and can cause stomach upset for pets.
