I have a new mom dog (puppies are 8 days old) and the mom dog wants to drink milk instead of water.. Is this wise to give it to her? :)

I really dont see or found a reason why the mom cant have milk..make sure tho its not homo,,cause she needs the water that 2% will provide for her..

Do not give milk - it will probably give her diarrhea.
