    Is milk good for dogs?

    I was just wondering if milk is good for dogs? Some websites say it's not. Can someone clarify this for me.

    I'd say nope. It can cause vomiting and the runs.

    They can't break down the lactose in the milk. There are puppy milks available but they really don't need it.

    My dog often has her kibble softened with a small amount of goat's milk, and also has a spoonful of bio yoghurt daily. She has no problems digesting these. I think it depends on the dog.

    When I was on the dairy farm the only animals (cats or dogs) that could have milk were ones who were barn animals... Milk = diarrhea in cats and dogs. They all love drinking it too.

    Yogurt not a problem.

    My parents dog Juno (English Cocker Spaniel) he gets milk every morning loves it (~150 ml) just something for taste.... the milk is non fat tho 0%. I think he would get the runs if it was anything higher.
