Don’t Give Raw Milk to Your Pets!

"If you feed your dog or cat raw milk, you are taking a serious risk of illness for your pet and yourself without any reasonable evidence to suggest a benefit that would make that risk worth taking. Just as raw diets in general have clearly established dangers and no proven benefits, so raw milk is a. poor bet with serious risks.  That is why raw milk products are generally illegalfor human consumption under federal and state law."
