Reaction or not?

So I've bought some lactose free yoghurt.... I let kitten have a few licks. She loved it but 2 hours later - writhing, screaming etc. not teeth - gel & pain relief did nothing so I'm thinking the yoghurt??

Could be. It's not the type of reaction A has to dairy, but as it's similar to the way she seems to react when you eat dairy I'd say that that's probably it. So I guess it's not the lactose she's reacting to, but cow's milk protein. Of course it could be coincidence......I'd wait a while (a month or so) and try a similar thing again and see what happens.

Poor kitten! :(
If the yoghurt's the only thing unusual, then most likely it's the protein, like elaruu said. A friend's little girl has that problem & can't have any milk products, not even the lactose free ones and not in any other forms/ mixtures (so no bread with any kinds of milk in the recipe either!). I hope it's something else for you.

Depending on how (de)hydrated I am, my allergy could flare up anytime between 2 to 6 hrs after ingestion of shrimps... Or not at all if I'm in top form & well hydrated!

Perhaps make sure that she's well rested & have had lots of water before you try next time?

Well at least I know there could be an issue & I'm not just imagining a reaction when I have dairy.

Dairy free bread - I best get baking my own again!!

When I was at the paed with Tiger's suspected dairy issue, he said usually in babies it is the protein they react to rather than the lactose (lactose intolerance is more common in adults), so unfortunately lactose-free products won't solve the problem :(
