Fargo Fleece is Back! 
We are happy to have coats from Fargo Fleece again for this winter! These coats are made by hand in Westlake, with a great deal of pride. Double fleece, they reverse from a print to a solid color so your dog will have style variety! Machine wash and dry, they are easy care, too. If you have an odd shaped dog, no worries! Fargo Fleece can make a custom coat to your dogs measurements. From tiny teacups to giant Danes, from slender greyhounds to round Bulldogs they can all be warm this winter.

Muttluks are in! 
To keep your puppy's toes warm this winter we have Muttluks boots! Warm and durable, they will protect your dogs feet from the worst cold. Winter cold and harsh ice melt chemicals are tough on your dogs pads. Using  a moisturizer like Mushers Secret or Paw-Tection will help protect against cracking and bleeding. These are a blend of organic oils and waxes, used regularly they can help keep ice from collecting between the pads.

Raw, Frozen Goat's Milk is a great supplement for your dog or cat

At the Grateful Dog Bakery, we are always looking for new products to help your pet stay healthy and happy. We do a lot of research before bringing a product in and offering it to you.  Before we put it on the shelf, we bring it home and see what our dogs and/or cat think of it. Only then will we offer it for sale to you.

One product that passed all the tests with our cat and dogs is raw, frozen goat's milk. Goat's milk has long been used as a replacement formula for baby mammals, including humans. 

Hypoallergenic, goat's milk is well tolerated and easily digestible. In its raw form goat's milk has high levels of the enzyme lactase, needed for the digestion of lactose or milk sugar. Goat's milk also has a smaller protein molecule, making it easily digestible. It contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes and essential nutrients that can be missing from even a good diet. What is truly exciting is the effect goat's milk has on the digestive tract.

Goat's milk does not create acid during digestion, in fact it naturally alkalizes the pH. This is extremely helpful for dogs with colitis or ulcers. The raw, frozen goat's milk produced for pets is fortified with probiotics to improve digestive health and boost the immune system. 85% of the immune system is provided by a healthy digestive system. Antibiotics and steroids are frequently given together for a multitude of conditions. These medicines are great in the short term, but can strip the digestive tract of the helpful bacteria needed to protect against disease. Raw, frozen goat's milk will help repopulate the healthy bacteria and keep your pet in balance.

As a supplement for a healthy pet, raw goat's milk has great benefits. It adds essential nutrients to the diet as well as immune system support. For a pet suffering from malnutrition, diarrhea or colitis raw goat's milk will repopulate the digestive tract with healthy bacteria and can shorten the duration of diarrhea. Goat's milk is naturally high in calcium, a great supplement for pregnant or nursing dogs or cats.
Frozen raw goat's milk can be used to rehydrate freeze dried or dehydrated foods, or to moisten kibble. Cats and dogs also benefit from the added liquid, since they are designed by nature to obtain some of their liquid from their live prey diet.

We carry two brands of raw, frozen goat's milk at the Bakery. Let us help you choose which one would be best for your dog or cat.
