Although there is special cat milk at an exorbitant cost, nowadays I prefer to give Gabriel, my cat, the same lactose free milk that I use myself. I use lactose free milk because I believe lactose may exacerbate a sinus problem that I have especially in winter after cold et cetera. It certainly seems to help.
I may be lactose intolerant just like a cat or I may be allergic to dairy produce although I don’t believe that. I have tried giving Gabriel my lactose free milk and he loves it and drinks it well. He was not a good water drinker but is a good lactose free milk drinker. Provided there are no hidden downsides and I don’t know of any this should be beneficial because it will help keep the urine diluted and flush out the urinary tract thereby preventing urinary tract bacterial infections. His stools are perfect, so there is no diarrhea, which can occur after a cat drinks regular milk.
Has anyone got any observations on this or hidden downsides?
