Some dogs are similar to mankind as far as dairy products are concerned; they even have lactose intolerance as few people, which mean these kinds of dogs cannot digest the lactose content present in the milk. Though as puppies they can digest lactose well as they grow into dogs they cannot digest it due to lack of enzymes production. As a result motions, vomits and other digestion related problems creep in, though they are not harmful they can lead to bacterial infection which in time can become routes to diseases.
