Is it okay to give my cat milk?

July 31st, 2010 · No Comments · Cat Health, Uncategorized

Is it okay to give milk to your cat occasionally?  No!!  Generally speaking cats shouldn’t drink milk because most cats are lactose intolerant to the sugars in the milk.  However, not all cats are lactose intolerant and  a little of milk as a treat now and then shouldn’t be a big problem. The exception to this is young kittens who must have milk to survive. It is of great importance that you do not give a kitten cow’s milk. The best possible milk if from the kitten’s own mother. If the kitten is orphaned and foster cat the veterinarian has specially designed kitten formula.  This formula is specifically designed for kittens and is the safest bet than ordinary cow’s milk.  Your Kittens cat health depends upon the proper feeding of lactose free cat milk that you can purchase from your veterinarian, supermarket or pet store.
