Feeding Dogs Dairy Products! Whether or not dogs can eat dairy products such as milk, Yoghurt and cheese is one of the most commonly asked questions from new dog owners. Unfortunately there is no concise answer to this, since individual dogs vary. The most abundant sugar in dairy products is lactose, which is a disaccharide that consists of bonded galactose and glucose fragments and which requires an enzyme called lactase to be able to digest it. The enzyme cleaves the lactose molecule into its two subunits, the simple sugars glucose and galactose, which can then be readily absorbed. When a mammals body does not secrete the lactase enzyme from their intestinal villi, they are unable to digest lactose and may suffer from unusual digestive symptoms.
There are 3 different clinical types of this condition including, cerebellar, sensory, and vestibular. Each type of ataxia will be manifested by impaired coordination when walking or standing. Changes in the dogs neck and head movement are characteristic of cerebellar and vestibular ataxia. The possibility that your dog has ataxia is evidenced in a variety of ways. Your dogs limbs may become weak. This symptom can be seen in all or just one or two limbs. Sometimes it is seen only on one side of the body or just in the hind legs. Other signs include tilting the head back and forth and abnormal eye movements.
