Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to answer your question today.

Yes, that should be fine for Bruno to drink water with skim milk in it as long as he doesn't develop diarrhea. Similar to humans, some dogs are lactose intolerant and can develop looser stools when they ingest diary products.
But other than this, there is nothing nutritionally that would prohibit your using skim milk and it will help keep him hydrated.

I hope this helps. Deb

Expert:  Dr. Deb replied 4 years ago.


I'll need a little more information before I can answer that question:

Is this a new problem or one that's been intermittent and now just getting worse?
Is he lethargic?
Is he off his food, too?
Does he eat canned or dry mostly?
