Dogs and cats don't have the digestive enzymes to properly break down lactose which is found in milk and... ice cream. So it's really not good for them to have regular ice cream. Because the lactose doesn't get digested, it is just left to ferment in the intestine... which is pretty unhealthy for your pet and can cause diahrrea. So if you like to share your ice cream with your pet, make sure to get lactose free ice cream! I know my grocery store sells special ice creams for dogs that don't contain lactose or anything else that can be harmful to your pet!

okay, when i first read your question, ithought, ew. but that was because i thought you were asking if you share your own cone with your dog. well, i don't do that but we usually let our dogs have their own ice cream, they love it.
