The Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom Instant Goat's Milk Review

Recently I mentioned in my blog that I was interested in&nbspThe Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom Goat's Milk for Dogs & Cats, 0.5 oz single-serve packets, box of 16 a dehydrated goat milk supplement.  The nice people at BarkBox happened to see that, and contacted me offering my rotten dogs a sample of it.

Ingredients: Dehydrated goat's milk, dried aspergillus oryzae fermentation product, dried candida rugosa fermentation product, dried trichoderma longibrachiatum fermentation product, dried pineapple fermentation product; dried lactobacillus casei fermentation product, dried lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried lactobacillus brevis fermentation product, dried bifidobacterium longum fermentation product, dried streptococcus thermophiles fermentation product.

It's ingredients are dehydrated goat's milk and various probiotics/enzymes.

According to The Honest Kitchen website, it is a digestive supplement for digestive health, and overall immune support at the gut level.

I have long heard that immune health begins in the gut, and depending on which websites one visits, statistics stating that 70-80% of immunity begins in the gut.  I kind of believe this.  I try to eat very healthy, and feel that I get sick much less often than some of my "healthy" friends who consume large amounts of processed foods.  Anyways...

Each packet is meant to be mixed with 8 ounces warm water, which I did.

It is a dry powder that was surprisingly not caked at all.  I did encounter just a couple of clumps whilst mixing with a fork.  After mixing, it had a peculiar scent about it.  Not unpleasant, just different, to me.  I have never had goat milk (but LOVE chevre) so I could resist taking a tiny sip.

After my sample, I divided it up into three bowls, a bit for each woofer.

I feel that they could smell it, because they were very excited when being approached with the bowls.  Even picky weirdo Faolan showed no hesitancy regarding it.  One quick sniff and they were all lapping it up.

The princess, enjoying her Pro Bloom.
Overall, I am pleased with it.  The woofers obviously enjoyed it, so I look forward to offering them the second packet I received.  The packets are convenient, and shelf stable.  It mixed fairly easily with the warm water.  I will more than likely purchase some of these to offer as an occasional treat, or use in times of GI distress.

Disclaimer-I received two packets free as a sample, but was not asked to review it. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.


  1. I have some of these packets too and Shiner really loves them. I like to mix them with her food sometimes.

  2. They look quite delicious! I would love to slurp them down


Thanks for the howls!!
