Is it OK to give your pet a regular milk? This question has brought many conflicting arguments and debates with one final decision: Pets are just like humans, they can also be lactose intolerant. Many researches discovered that most of the pets are lactose intolerant (lactose is a kind of sugar) so beside cutting off the regular sugar products from your pets life you have to cut off the lactose products too.
Our pets produce lactase which is an enzyme that splits the lactose, and how older your pet goes that less its body produces lactase and they become lactose intolerant. To protect our pets more then ever, just do not let them consume dairy products, even though some pets will not have problems with lactose.
Veterinarians also advise us to avoid the milk products, just because out pets do not need it and in that way we will stay away from problems. If we want to be sure that out pet is getting the right vitamins and nutrients, we have to feed them premium food for pets.
