Q&A with Matt Koss of Primal PEt Foods
What was the inspiration behind starting a goat's milk offering from Primal?
Primal was seeking an alternative to water for the rehydration of our Freeze Dried Formulas and Raw Goat Milk is an ideal solution. As well, due to the continued rise in digestive issues for dogs/cats, Primal wanted to launch a product that would enhance the gut/intestinal health of dogs and cats through a dietary supplement that is packed with beneficial microorganisms that provide intestinal and digestive tract support.
What are some issues that can be addressed with the addition of goat milk to the diet?
First and foremost, Raw Goats Milk provides an nutritionally sound source of fluid for dogs and cats that enhances the pets hydration, a critical aspect to overall health and longevity. As well Primal Raw Goats Milk contains beneficial microorganisms that enhance intestinal and digestive tract support. There is an increasing trend of digestive, intestinal and bowel issues being experienced by companion animals resulting from the consumption of diets produced from highly processed ingredients and cooked at extreme temperatures. Primal Raw Goats milk is a supplemental solution to these digestive/intestinal/bowl issues and provides companion animals with the proper nutritional support to help resolve such health concerns.
I see that the goat milk is fermented as well. What does fermentation add to this product that is beneficial?

A lot of people may think goat milk is odd for a dog or cat to consume since it's "another animal's milk". How is this suspicion true or not true?
Goats milk is often referred to as the “Universal Milk” due to the fact that this milk is highly digestible to many mammals, not just goats. The increased digestibility is due to a higher level of amino and fatty acids as well as smaller fat globules in goats milk vs. cow milk.
How does goat milk help with inflammation issues?
The high percentage of fatty acids contained in Goats Milk aids with the reduction of inflammation in the digestive tract of mammals
Is the product pasteurized or unpasteurized?
Primal Raw Goats Milk is not pasteurized or homogenized.
