Review: Pro Bloom Instant Goat’s Milk – Stumps Up or Down?

You Guys!

Today, I’d like to do a review of The Honest Kitchen’s Pro Bloom Instant Goat’s Milk. It was given to us as a sample in our BlogPaws bags and we gave it a try here at home. (Please note, I am also one of The Honest Kitchen’s Blog Partners, and we do receive 10% off in their online store for being a partner, but not for writing reviews.)

Last week, my mom FOD wrote a post about goat’s milk.  She feels like it’s healthy for us. I feel like it’s delicious. Mom FOD was getting her goat’s milk from a farmer, but it was often arriving frozen in large portions, which was hard for us little guys to polish off, so she was pleased to see this product from The Honest Kitchen in her BlogPaws bag. So, what is it?

Pro Bloom is a dehydrated goat’s milk that contains probiotics and digestive enzymes. According to The Honest Kitchen, it is not a raw food, because the milk is pasteurized prior to dehydration, but they do add in the probiotics after, which is helpful in maintaining some of goat’s milk’s health benefits. Some other nice things about Pro Bloom:

  • it’s pesticide- and herbicide-free
  • it contains no growth hormones
  • it contains no antibiotics
  • it’s from milk that comes from pasture-raised goats from the Pacific Northwest

The box comes with 16 packets of the powdered milk. After adding 8 ounces of warm water, you get to serve it to your pets. Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to two days, although in our house, there are no leftovers. The whole box makes 16 cups of milk and it retails online for $23.99.

Mom FOD has served it to us so far on three occasions. On the first two, all five of us loved it. On the most recent, four out of five pets enjoyed Pro Bloom. The other one had just eaten dinner and didn’t feel like indulging (he’s sort of a pansy when it comes to food. He actually stops when he’s full.)

Mom FOD appreciates that it’s a great way to get us to drink extra water, which cats don’t do much of on their own. It also helps get more water in Rocky’s diet. He gets constipated a lot and the extra water keeps things moving along.

Verdict: It’s a great product to have on hand for intermittent supplementation. It stores and travels well, is free of bad things and full of good things, and seems to be very palatable. It is a bit pricey to use for every day consumption, especially in multiple pet households, and we’d like to see that come down a bit, but I suppose paying for quality and convenience is not cheap. Overall, we give it two stumps up!

Four out of five in our household have never turned it down

    • Tabbies, I think if you measured it out and then put the leftover powder into a little jar, you could probably mix up a little at a time. I don’t have official word on it, but in my professional cat estimation, I think you could make small batches and be ok. – Crepes.

  2. I tried it with my milk lover cat, he was not impressed. Then I tried it on the lactose intolerant kitty.. poor guy. So I’m going to be giving away the samples as it’s not good for my cats, but maybe someone else’s dog or cat would like it. :)
