I was expecting worse. At least it sounds like it all actually was raw, unpasteurized goat milk.

Raw Unpasteurized Goat Milk in Hawaiian Pet Stores is the name of my luau dance party group that performs at weed and alcohol-fueled sex cult parties.

I've been asked if I use unpasteurized milk to make cheese. Why would I want to poison people?

Yamane says not all raw milk products are the same, and her shop only sold two brands with strict testing and fermentation procedures. She believes the products can help heal sick pets.

fermented????

I would think that any weirdo who wants to drink raw goat milk probably already keeps a pet goat in their apartment and gets it straight from the tiddy.

Clearly marked as pet food? Sure. And ivermectin was marked for veterinary use only. In reality both were marketed to people who think modern medicine is a Jewish plot, not their pets.

As the owner of a pet supply store I'm not getting a kick out of these replies. The milk is pretty miraculous for everything. It's the only thing I actively push because I'm a terrible salesperson. Gunky eyes, shiatty skin, bad knees, ear infections, vomiting, loose stool, anxiety. It helps dogs and cats with all of it. I think it heals the gut and I think we're just now learning how important gut health is. Plus pets just like it. I would never drink it because it smells like farking goats, but I've seen some amazing transformations

Aren't you just supposed to age cheese longer when using unpasteurized milk?  Though required aging reduces some of the cheese varieties you can produce.

god dammit, I GIS searched "model train goats" and it took me straight to Amazon.  So now that's in my search history.

Are you sure you work at a pet supply store? That sounds like a retirement home.

Weird logic.

If I told you guns shouldn't be sold because they could be used for the wrong purpose you'd throw me out of the office.

Probably kefir.  I've bought goat milk kefir for the dog when she was on a 28-day course of antibiotics. Don't think it was raw though.
 
2021-07-19 1:26:38 PM  
I didn't think we really needed to ban years-old goat milk. I mean, is it even milk at that point?
 
2021-07-19 1:28:31 PM  
Why would a pet store sell raw goat milk in the first place?  Unless you're raising baby goats, it's not really a good idea to give it to them, and if you're raising baby goats, you probably have a mama goat.
 
2021-07-19 1:30:49 PM  
It doesn't happen often but I use raw goat milk as an ingredient in homemade formula when I foster raise puppies and kittens. It works much better than the powdered stuff.

I guess I'm just lucky that I know enough goat people that I don't need to involve a retail chain or the government.

Even though the items are clearly sold as pet food, in the eyes of the Hawaii Department of Health, it's a public safety issue because it could be mishandled and consumed by humans.

Should we just ban everything that could be "mishandled"?

I have seen people eat Milk Bones, so Milk Bones should be banned from pet stores via this logic.

Given that you don't have human patients you are better than a chiropractor.

However to put that into context Mengele, despite being a monster, was a better physician and scientist than any chiropractor.

Look I'm all for making fun of chiropractors but you do not, under any circumstances, 'have to hand it to' Josef Mengele.

Pasteurization is one of the most important life saving inventions in human history. It's right up there with clean water and antibiotics.

If you are drinking or feeding unpasteurized milk you are a farking moron.

I can't believe these morans are drinking milk that hasn't been pasteurized by a space laser.

Raw milk shouldn't be 'banned' per se, but it should be clearly labeled as such, with appropriate warnings.

Essentially: WARNING! You're a farking moron if you think raw milk is a good idea. You're stupid, your ideas are stupid, and your facebook is stupid, stupid! You hillbilly enjoy the next anti-vaccination rally!

Um, who buys their milk in pet stores?


Should I use The Simpsons reference about rat milk or quote Kryten of Red Dwarf about why dog milk lasts so long, namely, no bugger'll drink it.
