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\".
First though, you’ve gotta have the desire, which, if you didn’t, I guess you wouldn’t be here. So that covers that. You have to be motivated, helping a dog to become a good citizen is definitely not something that will happen overnight. And every case you take will be different. You will have to safely navigate every individual canine you come into contact with. If you’re not safe, the shelter where you work or volunteer will kick your butt outside, with good reason. No one wants that kind of paperwork, and the dog you were supposed to be helping will probably end up euthanized. There is nothing worse or more exhausting than dealing with a good hearted but foolish volunteer/employee. Don’t be that person.
