Is feeding whole milk okay for my German Shepherd?

I give my other dog (Aussie) milk on the regular since he eats raw, but I'm not too sure with my GSD pup. He's been having some diaherra and I think it might be linked to the milk, but I'm not sure. I'm definitely going to cut it out of his diet, but what are your experiences with it and is milk good for them if they can tolerate it?

Most dogs can't digest cows milk which can lead to vomiting, pain, diarrhea or gas.

According to DNM, "Cow milk also contains different forms of the beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin proteins, which have also been linked to allergic reactions."

Raw Goat's milk (from a health food store or Whole Foods) would be a better choice. It contains nutrients, probiotics and enzymes that can benefit your dog. Read about it here:
