Wholemilk can be pretty tough on dogs and cat`s stomachs.It can give them a good case of the runs............And some dogs are allergic to milkfat.
If you want to give milk to your dog, it should be skimmed or VERY watered out!

Dog's don't actually have the right enzymes to break down cow's milk - but they do see to like it (and cheese) - VERY watered down as a treat.

The absolutely WORST case ever of diarrhea that Francis ever had was when he licked up almost a whole quart of milk that had been spilled. I sort of let him finish the job and didn't think twice about it until an hour later when he exploded. It was a disaster, to say the least. It took 2 days for his belly to get right again and it had to be in the middle of final exam time. :( No milk products for this guy anymore!
