March 31, 2016 – Raw Goats Milk
A friend of mine suggested giving Rocco raw goat’s milk. She shared an article which toted raw goats milk as a great nutritional food, as well as a potential medicine for certain ailments in pets.
I decided to do some research. Found quite a bit of good info and thus have bought some goats milk for Rocco. He LOVES it. I just pour it over his food and he devours it all. Will I notice a change in him? Who knows? Will it help keep the tumor from spreading? Who knows. Will it make him feel better? Who knows. But its making him happy and at the moment that’s my goal.
According to the Journal of American Medicine, “Goat milk is the most complete food known.” It contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein, and fatty acids all utilized by the body with ease. In fact the body can digest goat’s milk in 20 minutes. Having fat molecules one-fifth the size of those in cow’s milk makes it easily digestible and tolerable to those with compromised digestive systems.
According to and IBPet, Regarding Raw Goats Milk and Cancer: Many researchers have found that carotene (or Pro-Vitamin A) contains cancer preventing properties. The milk fat in goat’s milk contains a higher evolved carotene that is readily available for the body to absorb. There is also a fat in raw goat’s milk, called conjugated linoleic acid (or CLA), that is known as the cancer fighting fat. CLA has actually been shown in some cases to shrink cancer tumors.
Found similar info on many sites, they all say: Raw goat’s milk contains both anti-mucous and anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it a perfect supplement for dogs who suffer from allergies of any sort, including food and environmental allergies. Raw goat’s milk can help to make the steroids that you are forced to give your pet a thing of the past. As a natural anti-inflammatory, you can be certain that the side effects of drugs such as prednisone and cortisone will never be an issue.
Rocco is starting Prednisone on Sunday, so I hope its true that the raw goats milk with help with the side effects of the medicine and I hope that it helps shrink his tumor! Hope is a good thing 🙂
**Note: we got a second opinion and decided against the Prednisone. Read my other post.
