  • He's full of crap. If milk could give your dog worms, it could give you worms. It could give the dog an upset stomach, though, but that's about it.

  • Only if the milk carries the worm eggs, or the worms themselves...most grocery store milk is safe...I mean your kids drink it and they dont have worms---right?wink mini

  • He's full of shit. The only affect that may happen is an upset tummy. My dog licks milk off the floor all the time(My kids are clumsy like that) and our dog hasn't gotten worms or died.

  • Here's an article he can read about it, if he doesn't believe us.

    It talks about them being lactose intolerant but says nothing about worms.

  • Worms do not come from milk. Your husband is full of crap, just like mine.

  • No it won't! If he were drinking milk out of your toilet or litter box that might make sense but sorry OP's Hubby thats just silly.
