Goat milk, one of the most widely consumed milks in the world, has a host of nutritional benefits for your cat. Rich in omegas and medium-chain triglycerides, it provides fatty acids for healthy skin and coat. It’s also packed with protein and amino acids with high levels of digestible taurine. Plus, goat milk is easier to digest than cow milk thanks to its smaller fat globules and lower lactose levels. And it encourages picky eaters and adds much-needed moisture to a kibble diet!
The latter is perhaps the most important. Cats are notorious for consuming little water. Unlike humans, they are designed to obtain the majority of their water from the foods they eat, and this this nutrient-rich digestive aid definitely helps in that regard.
Plus, in its raw form, goat milk has natural anti-inflammatory properties, and the probiotics can improve digestion and help fight the yeast that can grow in and around ears and paws.
