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.
The only way to tell for sure if your pet has any type of ataxia is to have them thoroughly examined by your vet. The reason for the ataxia will be determined by a wide range of tests, the cost of which should be covered by a good pet insurance policy. Finding out why these signs are being displayed is imperative. There are other possible reasons for the symptoms such as a reaction to medication or an ear infection.
