Should you offer your cat some milk?
Your cat is as cute as can be, and you can’t help wanting to offer her ways to make her happy. Would giving her some milk or products made with it be a good way to brighten her day?
There are a lot of wonderful treats out there for your cat, but milk and milk products should not be included in this category. While your pet may enjoy the taste, it isn’t likely to offer her body what it needs as most adult cats are lactose intolerant. This means that your pet will probably experience some digestive upset after consuming items with milk in them because her digestive system no longer produces the enzymes needed to break down milk properly. As young kitten this wasn’t the case, as her body needed to break down the milk her mother offered her, but things tend to change with age. For additional information, please contact your local Jacksonville, FL veterinarian.
