|I mean she can have a tiny bit of regular milk - maybe a few tablespoons per day. That's if she has no signs of gas, stomach rumblings, or loose stools. If you intend to feed more milk, then you may have to use Catsip or Lactaid. But anyway, the point of a treat is to give it only occasionally so it's really special when the dog gets it!
Being able to tolerate yogurt tells you little about whether Pepsie can tolerate milk. Milk contains lactose, a type of sugar. When the dog eats milk but can't digest lactose, it gets stomach issues. Yogurt contains live bacteria, which digest the lactose so the animal doesn't have to. Cottage cheese, as well as any cheese, is made with bacteria which metabolize at least some of the lactose, so there is less lactose in these cheeses than there is in milk.
