Probiotic Foods

Beneficial bacteria and live enzymes are the building blocks of not only healthy digestion, but also healthy immune & nervous system. Feeding supplemental foods like raw green tripe, raw cultured goat milk, and fermented fish broth ensures that your dog or cat is getting the most easily absorbed probiotics and enzymes possible, along with other nutritious components.

Start slow, as you would with any new food or supplement.

These foods are all excellent for sick animals because they are highly nutritious and easily digested (they also smell interesting, which can encourage animals who aren’t feeling well).

Raw cultured goat milk is a balanced source of highly digestible protein, enzymes, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Unpasteurized milk retains all naturally occurring enzymes, including lactase, making it much more digestible than pasteurized milk.  It’s high in caprylic acid which helps fight yeast problems. Its broad array of nutrients are easily and quickly absorbed, making it perfect as a convalescence food and as a milk replacement for puppies and kittens. It can be fed as a meal on days when you want to lightly fast your pet. Probiotics are added to the products we carry for increased health benefits. Both of our raw milk brands are sourced in the U.S. from free-ranging, grass-eating goats, and are tested for e. coli, salmonella, and listeria.

Primal Goat Milk: Probiotics added are: Lactobacillus acidophilus (improves immune response to pathogenic bacteria and fungi), Lactobacillus lactis, Lactobacillus salivarius (inhibits h. pylori in lab tests), and Enterococcus facium (needs to be replaced continually in the body, but found to be resistant to many antibiotics and better than L. acidopholus at shortening diarrheal episodes). Cinnamon, ginger, and turmeric are added as warming digestive aides.

Answers Goat Milk: Probiotics added are: Lactococcus lactis and Leuconostoc mesenteroides. A small amount of honey is added to act as a prebiotic, and a small amount of cinnamon is added as a warming digestive.

Answers Fermented Fish Broth
Like all fermented foods it contains high amounts of naturally occurring enzymes and probiotics. It’s high in gelatin which is healing to the intestinal lining, and contains beneficial amounts of chemical components that support healthy joint and matrix functioning. It contains actual thyroid gland (from fish), and is beneficial for animals with chronic renal failure who are on low protein diets (the broth is high in beneficial amino acids that aid kidney function). It’s also a good source of fatty acids.

Green Tripe
Our raw green tripe is from grass-fed cattle and contains the stomach and partially digested grasses that, with the digestive chemistry, are the source of naturally occurring enzymes, probiotics, and other nutrients. It is not nutritionally complete on its own, but is very useful as a regular part of any pet’s diet (many owners feed a weekly meal).
