milk?

Postby deuce69 » Fri Jul 02, 2004 8:23 pm

Is ok to mix the dogs food w/ milk... I asked one vet and they said that some dog's stomach's cant handle milk, but if your dog can, then it's ok... on the other hand, another vet said not to.... Any opinions?

If you want to give them dairy, give them yogurt or kefir (it's like liquid yogurt). Their tummies do wonderous things with all the bacteria in them...

Milk doesn't do much good for them - in fact, it will probably give them the runs. :yucky:

I let mine have yogurt too, the probiotics help a ton. They really love ice cream so I let them have a little now and again.

I don't know many dogs or cats that aren't lactose intolerant. They will either vomit or get the runs. I would stick to yogurt if you feel like giving them dairy.

I heard before to calm a dog down to use warm milk. One night when Coal was just a wee pup he would NOT go to bed and we were having the toughest time getting him to sleep. I suggested the warm milk thing to my mom, and since we were ready to try anything, did it. Never again. It made him even MORE hyper roflmao

Yogurt though is really good for them! My last dog was on the BARF diet and I fed her home made yogurt a lot and she loved it!

Coal just LOVES cheese too! He can smell it/hear it from a mile away roflmao
