Must Love Pekes is a blog for those who love Pekingese, their looks, their antics, their personalities. It is written by me, Linda, and I have been rescuing Pekingese for 14 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

MILK AND DOGS
Chaumey, now Tommy, lives in Maryland now. He was one of my really sweet foster dogs. In his new home, he has let them know he loves milk. He must have found a cereal bowl. :-) They asked if milk was okay for dogs. So, I asked our Roanoke vet, Dr. Hodges. She told me that many adult dogs will get diarrhea if they drink milk since they lose the enzymes necessary to digest it after puppyhood. (Many people lose these, too, after childhood-- I'm one of them!) So, to be safe, no milk products for your dogs.
