    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Is liquid whey OK for kittens?

    I make my own yogurt from skim milk and always have leftover liquid whey. I've heard some owners say that they give this to their pets instead of water. Is this ok for a kitten? I'll be bringing 2 home in a month.

    Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
    No. Cow's milk contains lactose, which many cats are intolerant to. It also doesn't supply the nutrients needed for a kitten to grow properly. Stick with high quality canned diets specifically made for kittens. Your veterinarian can tell you exactly what to use, once they've been examined.
