Some dogs do get upset stomachs from milk products while others are able to tolerate the occasional treat with no adverse effects. You know your dog best and what they are able to tolerate. If in doubt you can substitute whole milk for goat milk which is easier for a dog to digest. No matter what you ultimately decide please be sure to give these or any treats in moderation.
In case you cannot find carob powder at your local store there are several options available via Amazon:
DO NOT substitute chocolate for the carob in this recipe. Carob is safe for dogs and is not at all harmful when given as a treat in moderation. There is no caffeine or theobromine in carob both of which are toxic to dogs!
Chocolate is toxic to dogs depending on the type of chocolate and the amount eaten can cause emergency issue or even fatality. Learn about Chocolate Toxicity in Dogs on petMD with the chocolate toxicity meter
