Dairy for Dogs in Vancouver!

August 7, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Most dogs are lactose-intolerant, which means that they have a hard time digesting the lactose in dairy products such as milk, and may result in stomach upset and diarrhea.


However, most yogurt and cheese have very low lactose content and can be an easy, natural, wholesome treat to share with your pooch.


Just be sure to give low-fat yogurt and cheese as a diet high in fat increases the risk of pancreatitis for dogs. Also, it is best to choose plain yogurt because flavoured one tend to have added sugar which is merely empty calories for your dog.
