While that is a dangerous hobby she has, the Lactase tablets are no risk. As long as they don't have xylitol (an artificial sugar that can be used in some tablets), we'd expect no harm. If anything she may just have a bit of stomach upset here. Therefore, we would just to plan to keep an eye on her and if her appetite wanes we can plan to put her on a light diet. Examples you can use are cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, or meat baby food (as long as its garlic/onion free). As long as improvement is being seen, I usually advise that the diet be continued until the upset settles then we can slowly wean her back to their normal diet.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
