I recently adopted a Doberman and I've been trying to find out the best diet for him. I've heard that some dogs are lactose intolerant and shouldn't consume milk. I was wondering if this was the case for Dobermans as well. Is milk good for Doberman dogs or should I avoid giving it to him altogether?
Any advice or personal experiences would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
I have a 2-year-old Doberman who loves milk, and I usually add it to his food so that he gets enough calcium. Initially, I was hesitant due to the lactose intolerance issue I had heard about, but my vet confirmed that milk was okay in moderation. However, I make sure the milk I give him is organic and low in lactose and also limited to only small amounts with his meals.
Since incorporating milk into his diet, I've noticed visible improvements in his teeth and bone growth. Still, I do believe that every Doberman's digestive system is different, and it's important to keep a close eye on how milk affects your dog.
In conclusion, in my experience, adding a small proportion of milk to my Doberman's diet has been beneficial. But please speak to your veterinarian to determine the best diet for your Doberman, and monitor their reaction to milk closely.
