    The really funny thing is how it's "normal" for you to drink cows milk but not human milk. Interesting logic huh?

    But back to the topic at hand I was just really wondering as a supplement? Again I'm not gonna do, I just really curious if it could be used for say a puppy or sick dog? It has great benefits for humans I wonder if any of those benefits would transfer to a dog? Just food, or milk, for thought.

    Well, I am just impressed that @Chumley is such a mannerly guy that he got the human milk from a bag in the fridge!! Could have been worse!

    Give it a try and let us know how he does. Just don't tell anyone you know personally. They will never look at you the same again, LOL

    Really human milk is that gross? Do you know where a lot of supplements come from? Or flavoring? Or everyday products? A lot worse places then a human breast lol. Or cow milk that's filed with blood and puss.

    I have yet to hear of anyone supplementing with dairy on a raw diet. We feed the prey model raw and there is no dairy whatsoever. Raw meat, raw bones, organs.
    I wouldn't chance it personally. Too many unknowns that could lead to issues. There are far better things you can use to supplement that dogs can actually benefit from.

    That's a great question, I am not sure if it would help it hinder. See a mother dog produces immunities that she has in her milk and those are passed to the pup, including immunity to parvo, distemper, ect. Once the pup is weaned it takes 3 weeks for those immunities to leave their body. During that time giving a parvo shot is worthless- because the mothers overrides the shot so the shot does nothing.

    Human milk does the same for babies, so I'm not sure if it would give her any benefits because she is not human, and likely has and needs different immunities.

    Humans have a different digestive system as well as a different ph.

    We are not immune to certain things that dogs are, like salmonella. Dogs are not immune to things we are like eating onions and grapes.

    For this reason again I would discuss it with your vet. There is no reason to not give it if it's beneficial, it could be very beneficial, but that I just don't know.
