How Dogs Suck Because Of Lactose Intolerance

13 Jun 2016 | by Abhinav unot | Posted in: Wag News

Lactose is a sugar found in all dairy products. It requires a special enzyme named 'Lactase' to digest that natural sugar. Unfortunately, some dogs don't produce that enzyme well enough to digest milk and other dairy products. You need to be very vigilant in discerning whether your dog is lactose intolerant or not.

If your dog happens to be lactose intolerant, there is a very good chance that you will experience the following situations. Being in that situation is going to suck for your dog as well as yourself, hence the title of the article.

1. Vomit

Due to their inability to digest lactose, a dog is most likely to spoil the newly bought Persian Carpet of yours. Yes, that’s going to suck big time!

2. Flatulence

Ever smelt a ‘dog fart’? If you are one of the few lucky dog parents who have not had this experience, beware, that experience may be awaiting your nose when your pooch has a bowl full of milk.

3. Diarrhea

Your furry friend will most likely be diagnosed with diarrhea on consuming dairy if he is lactose intolerant. Funny thing is that this is not specific to dogs but even humans spend hours on the potty if they are lactose intolerant.

4. Lack of appetite

You normally swoon when you watch little Fido eat the bowl out in a minute. The passion he has for food will be missing due to indigestion caused by dairy.

There is no foolproof method to know if your pooch is lactose intolerant or not. The best you can do is feed them little quantity at first and if there is any symptom or change in their behavior then you can assume that they are lactose tolerant or not. If any change does happen, be sure to see your vet at the soonest.
