All mammals have high levels of lactase when they are young - they do, after all, drink their mothers milk. However, this ability to digest lactose generally decreases with age because most mammals do not drink milk in the wild after weaning. For example, there is decreased lactose tolerance in up to 75% of humans (this rises to 90% in some Asian and African countries). The amount of lactase present in the digestive system of any given dog is thought to vary as widely as it does in humans. Even lactose-intolerant dogs probably usually have small amounts of lactase activity in their gut. When there is insufficient lactase activity to process the amount of ingested lactose, the lactose is not broken down into its constituent components and is therefore not absorbed by the dogs intestine. When lactose is not absorbed by the body, unusual digestive symptoms can arise and the animal is said to suffer from \"Lactose Intolerance\".
The focus of animal massage for many years was horses, particularly racing and show horses. The benefit of massage for horses is well recognized among horse owners. Massage certification has been offered in equine massage therapy for years, but only recently has the focused turned toward pet massage certification. With literally billions of dollars flowing into the pet care industry and pets living longer and more active lives, pet massage therapy is now being offered at veterinarian clinics, grooming salons and doggie daycare establishments all over the country.
