Mill is not necessarily bad for dogs but it can cause diarrhea. There is nothing toxic or poisonous or "bad" about milk for the dogs digestive system, but they don`t always tolerate it well. I don`t think your husband is causing harm giving milk from the cereal bowl, however if she develops signs of diarrhea, then it would certainly be worth stopping this habit.

Encouraging her to eat/drink from human bowls/plates/cups etc can be a problem with scavenging and counter surfing, so bear this in mind!
