Goat Milk Creamery Opens for Dogs

Creamery delivers farm-fresh goat milk for Japan’s most spoiled dogs

A high-end creamery has opened in Japan to sell fresh goat milk for dogs.

Fresh goat milk is a prize at any market, and a high-end new creamery has opened in Japan to serve fresh goat milk to all that country’s very fanciest dogs.

According to Rocket News 24, Japanese gourmet pet food purveyor Chiacchiere Cani has added fresh-squeezed goat milk to its list of posh dog offerings. The company is known for its fancy dog food and high-end dog treats, which include things like cookies and cakes designed specially for dogs. Now they’re adding fresh goat’s milk, which the company says is lower in allergens and easier for dogs to digest.

Locavore dogs will be pleased to know that Chiacchiere’s goat milk is locally produced from goats in the highlands of the Japanese Alps. Milk is shipped directly from the goats to customers twice a week to ensure maximum freshness. A four pack of 5.1-ounce bottles runs $12.90. The super high-end dog milk will be for sale only until the end of milking season in September, at which point the goats will get a break and the dogs will have to go back to drinking water. Knowing these dogs, it will probably be Pellegrino.


Can Dogs Eat Cheese, Or Is Cheese Bad For Dogs?

Can dogs eat cheese? It can be tough to know what foods are okay to feed our dogs. Nutritious foods for us sometimes have unpleasant consequences for our furry friends.

So, can dogs eat cheese? Yes, most of them can!

But, how much and which varieties? And what happens when a dog eats cheese? When is cheese bad for dogs?

In this article, we’ll find out all about dogs and cheese, including how different types of cheese might affect your dog.


Can Dogs Drink Milk?

What type of beverage comes to mind when you hear the word milk? While most people think of cow’s milk, there are other dairy and non-dairy milks too. Cows’ milk is the most common, so it’s the most likely to be given to a pet.

And generally, the answer to, “Can dogs have milk?” is yes.

However, pet nutrition experts warn that some dogs do have difficulty digesting lactose, a natural sugar found in dairy products. Lactose can cause digestive problems in not only dogs, but also cats — and humans, too.

If your dog has an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy products, then traditional cow’s milk might not be the best choice for your dog.

So today I want to share with you over 20 uses for goat’s milk. I understand your skepticism if all you’ve ever known has been store-bought cow’s milk. I grew up that way.

Using Evaporated Goat's Milk

Many canned goat's milks are evaporated. To make regular strength goat's milk, add an equal amount of water. Using evaporated goat's milk in your soap is like a combination of using fresh and powdered milk when it comes to technique.

You may get a little bit of orange color shift using this method, but not too much.

Make Lye Solution

Make your lye solution using half of the water called for in the recipe. For example, if your recipe calls for 8 ounces of water, make it with 4 ounces. Be careful with this solution, as it will be very strong. If the lye doesn't dissolve completely, you can add a few more tablespoons of water, a bit at a time, until it's dissolved.

Add Goat's Milk

Use goat's milk for the other half of the liquid called for in the recipe. So, if your recipe calls for 8 ounces of water, use 4 ounces of water to make the lye solution, and set aside 4 ounces of evaporated goat's milk to use later.

Mix up Soap

Mix your soap as you normally would, but when it comes time to add the lye solution to the oils, add the liquid goat's milk first. Stir it well.

Add Lye Solution to Mixture

Then, add the double-strength lye solution to the mixture and stir until it reaches trace.


Due to their high milk production, when feeding goats your dairy goats need a bit more nutrition management than goats used for meat, as pets, or weed control.

1. Grain

In addition to access to pasture, dairy goats are often given grain mixes with 14-16% protein on the milk stand. For goats recovering from labor, you can give them as much grain as they will eat.

Once their bodies are back in good condition, then a common rule of thumb is to give 1 pound of grain for every 3-5 pounds of milk as needed to help dairy goats maintain peak health.

2. Free Choice Hay

Unless dairy goats are overweight, they are usually allowed free access to hay whenever they are not in pasture. Since dairy goats need more calcium than non-lactating goats, adding legume hay is helpful.

3. Mineral Supplementation

If your dairy goats don’t have access to legumes in a pasture or as hay, then consider using supplements like alfalfa pellets in your grain mix to increase calcium.

Free choice minerals, formulated for dairy goats, are also generally required for optimal health.


Lactose Intolerance in Dogs

Dairy products are a leading source of food intolerance in dogs, and many canines are lactose intolerant, which means they have difficulty digesting milk. Some lactose intolerant dogs have trouble drinking milk, but can handle dairy products like cheese and plain yogurt, which are typically easier to digest than straight milk. Others have adverse reactions to dairy in general.


While cheese can be safe to feed to your dog, there are some things to remember. Cheese is high in fat, and feeding too much to your dog regularly can cause weight gain and lead to obesity. Even more problematic, it could lead to pancreatitis, a serious and potentially fatal illness in dogs. In addition to the problems presented by the high-fat content, some cheeses contain herbs or other products that are toxic to dogs, such as garlic, onions, and chives.

Therefore, it’s better to feed your dog low-fat cheeses, like mozzarella, cottage cheese, or a soft goat cheese. Cottage cheese is lower in fat and sodium than other cheeses, helping reduce the risk of obesity. Cottage cheese is also lower in lactose, thus reducing the likelihood of intestinal upset.
