Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

My old website can be found at

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Catsip for Cats

A syndicated article by Dr. Marty Becker, McClatchy-Tribune reminded me of a product I haven't been reminded about in years.

CatSip is a lactose-free lowfat milk for cats, although dogs can have it as well. It's made by AKPharma, run by Alan Kligerman, the man who created Lactaid. They remove the lactose with the lactase enzyme, just like regular lactose-free milk for humans.

Dr. Becker wrote:

CatSip also has the amino acid Taurine added which is essential to healthy feline hearts and eyes. Once opened, the product (which is also dog approved) must be refrigerated to last as long as regular milk.

Go to the CatSip home page for more information.

Or you can reach their customer service hotline at 1-800-994-4711 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST Monday-Friday, or email them at
