Min Pin
Hi Cybervet

My Min Pin is just over 5 months now. Every morning and evening I give him a little bit of milk as he just loves it and sits next to his bowl waiting for it. During the rest of the day he only gets water to drink. Is it unhealthy to give him milk?

No. Most dogs that have been fed milk since young will be fine. If a dog has not been fed milk for sometime and then fed again it can cause his tummy to be upset because they sometimes loose the ability to digest the milk and it "goes through" the system and inevitably causes diarrhoea. A little now-and-then should be fine.
