If you are interested in excellent canine nutrition, please read Jean Dodd`s "Canine Nutrogenics" which explains why dogs do greatly benefit from a daily dose of goats milk, yoghurt or cheese (all goats) and why dog owners are not educated enough about canine nutrition due to bad advice by poorly informed Vet`s. This is a science based book based on a dog`s genomes and explains why it is ultra important to make sure our canine babies are given the 10 amino acids in an unbroken chain that they cannot make themselves.

Don't over complicate the subject casper&jake93. Dogs lived (and in some countries still do live) for hundreds of years in the wild without reading books on canine nutrition, eating what they find. This is a whole new subject which never existed when I started in dogs. In fact, at a result of food rationing here in the UK following WW2 there was little available in the way of dog food and my first dog lived almost exclusively on a diet of table scraps. The proof of success of his diet is that after all this time he grew to be the oldest dog I ever owned!

Dogs are very much like us in that yes, they need a balanced diet, but like us, that balance is a long term thing. Not every meal needs to be balanced, rather it should balance out in time.

Contra to popular belief, dogs do not need the same food every meal. This is a myth put about by the pet food industry in order to gain a captive market. But if a dog is not subjected to a varied diet it's stomach will adapt to what it gets, and changing WILL give it a gippy tummy. My dogs get everything from Spag Bol and Chinese Sweet & Sour Chicken to dog food.

Regards, John

I'm with John (John W) on this 😀
A little bit of human food to make their digestion acceptable to bits of stuff found on walks!! 😱
Our vet said, many years ago - - - Wouldn't you get bored with eating the same food everyday????

Don't do goats milk or goats cheese so this is one of the few things my dogs have never tried 😏

When it comes to goats milk, in moderation it does no harm. When my friend's Flatcoat gave birth to a litter she tried to get some goat's milk but could not find a source locally, so used sheep's milk.

Some years ago my sister kept goats and her boys were brought up with goats milk on their cornflakes! Below is one of my sister's kids, held by my mother, who sadly died around 4 years ago. I'd guess the photo was taken in the mid 1970's

I make kefir for my dog, as per Vet. He is on a kibble diet so missing some probiotics he used to get from raw foods. The kefir should help replenish some probiotics. I wish I could find raw, goat milk to make it from but I haven't been able to. So I use grocery store whole cows milk. It's a bit of a commitment time wise, only in that I need to do it every day, not that it takes a long time. We share a bit before bed. Surprisingly, since he didn't like commercial yogurt, he does like kefir.
