    Everyone already told you what is so bad about it. Many animals are lactose intolerant and cow's milk can upset the stomach. Goat's milk is fine for dogs but really expensive if you are going to include it in the diet. I know many ppl who live with cold weather and they use warm water mixed into the food to warm up the dogs in the winter. There are better source of calcium for dogs than cow's milk and if you are feeding a good diet then you should not have to worry about adding extra calcium to the food.

    You can buy vits that have everything a dog needs if you are concerned about lack of calcium. Milk is bad, why? it is hard to digest, it causes vomiting, loose stool, severe cases cause the dog to be lethargic, sick with vomiting loose stool, weight loss, fever. I can keep repeating myself my question is, why give a dog milk when there are vits?

    Okay...yeah, put water in his food -- dogs usually LIKE that-- but ALWAYS have a separate water supply for your dog...don't depend on his feedings to supply the water he needs.

    Your dog is not deficient in calcium if he's getting a good kibble as the basis of his diet...the vast majority of normal dogs don't need calcium supplemented...extra calcium won't do anything special for dogs and can be harmful...

    That is why l try to keep it natural by giving Goats milk for extra calcium .
    Why would you want to give vitamins to a pup,it goes through the liver,l dont think boosting your pup with b/s artificial vits is any good in long run.

    It's so easy these days to give a low protein, mineral, vitamin diet, but top it all of with crapy powders ,fillers and vits.LOL!:D

    If I use any milk at all it is goat's milk, expensive but it is a good way to start weening the pups.
