Should I Give My Cat Milk?

Although milk appears to be a natural nutrient for our cats, cow’s milk does not contain any nutritional value for our cat, and can cause many digestive problems. The reason for this is that many cats lose their lactose resistance after weaning. The decrease in resistance to lactose means that they cannot digest sugar naturally found in milk. This causes diarrhea and unwanted digestive problems.

As long as your cat eats high-quality food and drinks clean water, all your needs are met. Milk alone is not enough food for any cat and should never be given in place of a food or water. Replacing your cat’s food or water with milk will cause your cat’s malnutrition.

Many cats seem to like milk and this is a dilemma for cats who want to give their cats their favorite food. This is because some cats are lactose-resistant and others are resistant. It is harmless to occasionally give milk for such cats. All you need to do to see how your cat reacts is to give her some milk. Without diarrhea, it is resistant to lactose and digestible.
