Milk Occasionally Causes Diarrhea

  Back

Cats love milk and cream but dairy products occasionally cause diarrhea. That’s because while kittens produce an enzyme called lactase to digest lactose, the sugar in milk, some adult cats don’t. They don’t have enough of the right bacteria in their intestines to do so. If milk upsets your cat’s digestion and causes diarrhea, offer it either ‘cat milk’ or ‘lactose-free milk’, either of which is available from large supermarkets.
