Dairy products in dog food

Although milk contains several beneficial nutrients, it also contains a high proportion of the sugar lactose. As in humans, many dogs have real difficulties digesting lactose and as a result milk products can bring on stomach pains, flatulence, diarrhoea and even vomiting. This condition is known as lactose intolerance. Lactose is also present in virtually all dairy products including cheese, yogurt, cream, whey and ice cream. If your dog has a sensitive stomach, dairy products are generally best avoided.
