Sheep Milk, a Little Known Superfood

What are Superfoods?  Nutrient rich powerhouses that have large doses of Vitamins, Minerals, anti- oxidants, and Polyphenols, therefore this little known Superfood should become part of your dog's daily diet.

What can this superfood do for our fur babies?

The superiority of sheep’s milk lies in the comparison with cow and goat milk – especially the differences between the levels of critical nutritional substances like protein, calcium,iron,magnesium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, Vitamins B6, B12 and D, the medium chain amino acids, linoleic acids and all 10 essential amino acids.

Sheep’s milk contains about one third more energy than cow or goat milk. It has double the protein and much more of the right kinds of fats, vitamins and minerals, particularly calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc, while being lower in sodium. It has more than twice as much Vitamin C, and double or triple the other essential vitamins. Importantly, it also has more folic acid (folate).

Sheep’s milk contains about twice the fat of cow’s milk, but this also means twice the “healthy” fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, including Omega 3 & 6).

The fat globules in sheep milk are smaller than those in either cow or goat milk so the milk is more homogenous. The smaller the fat globules are often more easily digested and therefore a natural for lactose intolerant dogs.

Sheep’s milk is also naturally homogenous since the smaller fat globules are evenly distributed within the milk and don’t rise to the top like cow’s milk.

In Summary, Sheep's milk yogurt should become part of your pet's diet because it is well endowed with nutrients that are essential in maintaining a healthy lifestyle for your pet.
