    Goat milk definitely contains lactose. Maybe you can buy lactose free goat milk.

    Hard to make cheese without some kind of sugar…

    Agreed I should have said contains a lot less lactose than cows milk. The point I was trying make was it doesn’t scour dogs.

    I'm sure that bone meal has recommendations for pups?

    Pups don’t need bonemeal if their on a good balanced diet. But if you want to feed it as has been said less is better than more. And just one other thing to remember is that the bonemeal you see in garden centres etc is not for feeding to dogs. You need the food grade stuff.

    Don't over do calcium,  causes more harm than good. 

    Adult dogs can  control calcium level when healthy but pups can't and to much causes abnormal bone growth. A normal diet should  supply plenty. 

    Absolutely spot on I had a lurcher pup many years ago that had to much calcium which caused hollow spots in her bones. They were very painful and took a month of cage rest to cure.

    What's people's appineons on feeding young pups on feeding cows milk goats milk or jest mixing lactol powder in water

    For weaned pups goats milk is best as it contains no lactose which is what scours dogs. For pups that are not weaned and can’t feed of the bitch then you need to use the correct puppy formula.
