    yes, just like some people, some dogs are lactose intolerant.

    did he get a whole lot at once tho? some dogs, even if they are not intolerant, need to be introduced to dairy products slowly.

    i was watching this show the other day and they were making treats and they said and if your dog is lactose intolerant you can substitute the milk in the recipe for something like soy milk

    When working at the Vet clinic most dogs are lactose intolerant. I find that even if they are lactose intolerant they can still tolerate Yogurt (quite well), Cottage Cheese and funny as it may sound raw unpasturized milk can be better tolerated by lactose intolerant dogs. I haven't tried the raw milk, I just read it in a recent book called Healing pets with Natures miracle cures by Henry Pasternak DVM, CVA .

    in my biology text from school it says something along the lines of humans being the only mammals that can properly digest milk after they have been 'weaned' from their mother because they (or some of them) have the enzymes to digest it and other mammals do not, although some animals can handle milk in small quantities.

    Goats' milk is often handled well by lactose intolerant. Yoghurt is a good choice though, when you want to give your dog a dairy treat.
