A dog loves milk

Irina, Moscow

I heard that dogs can not milk. But our pet is very fond of him. What to do?

Most dogs do not have special enzymes,Which allow to digest the lactose contained in dairy products. Therefore, after consuming milk, yogurt, cottage cheese and similar food, the pet may experience an attack of flatulence and diarrhea. By the way, the inability to digest lactose is also inherent in most cats and very many people.

Usually dogs refuse milk. Some of them drink it, but very rarely. However, there are those who love dairy products. If your pet from their number, and while he does not have diarrhea, you can safely give him milk and cottage cheese. As a precaution, you can buy products with medium fat content or purchase special lactose-free milk for animals.
