Air Dried Goat Cheese Wafers
We've spent the last 3 months on a mission to create a more hypoallergenic, soft version of standard Yak Cheese chews for dogs with sensitivities to beef, senior dogs, & dogs with dental issues. After much experimentation we've come up with what we are calling Goat Cheese wafers! We've partnered with a local family owned farm that ethically raises Goats for their milk to source all of our Goat milk fresh.
Each batch contains 10-12 wafers & is made to order in house once an order is placed. Please note drying time can vary from 48-96 hours depending on the thickness of the wafers. Once dried the wafers measure around 6" in length. The width can vary based on customer preference & how the chews shrink during the dehydration process so some variation is to be expected. Pictured are 1/2" wafers which we recommend for all breeds & yield between 10-12 wafers a batch but they can also be requested in 1/4" widths which will yield closer to 20 wafers, as they are cut slimmer prior to dehydration. The wafers can be fed whole or broken down into smaller pieces which make for a high value crunchy treat for any dog. Additionally because this treat is on the crunchier side & can break apart easily, it is a bit more fragile in transit. While we always put a great deal of care into our packaging to ensure your treats arrive in the best condition possible, these treats are more subject to becoming broken in transit. We always recommend gradually introducing nutrient rich treats in small amounts to determine how your dog tolerates it.

What is Agar Agar Powder? Agar powder is a gelatin like substance used as a natural thickener derived from red algae seaweed & ideal for dogs with protein sensitivities from beef derrived gelatin. Agar is a high source of fiber that helps absorb toxins in the gut & carry them out of the body safely. Regulating your dog’s bowel is a vital element of digestive health. This seaweed is also a good source of calcium & magnesium.
What are the benefits of including Goats milk in my dog's diet? Digestive health is always the first benefit that comes to mind when we think about Goat's milk. Goat's milk is rich in proteins called lactase enzymes, making the natural sugars in the milk more digestible. It is also packed with probiotics & A2 beta-casein, which promote healthy bacteria in your pet’s digestive system. The A2 beta-casein makes it a good alternative for dog's with allergies & sensitivities, unlike cow’s milk which contains A1 beta-casein.Vitamins A & Vitamin C are considered to be antioxidants, which may aid in immune health. Because Goat's milk is also rich in biotin, which is an essential B vitamin for skin & strengthening hair follicles, it is believed to help your dog's cells produce sebum which aids in creating a luminous coat. Lastly, the wide variety of vitamins & minerals including selenium, fatty acids, & zinc are all believed to help reduce inflammation which may help with arthritis & achy joints.
