Don't know if this will pertain to you or not... but some people that are lactose intolerant only seem have problems (or maybe it is just magnified) with dairy from cows. My friend that has a pretty severe dairy intolerance can eat dairy products from sheep or goat with no problem. I know she's sub'd goat and sheep cheese, don't know if she's used goat milk or yogurt.
I've gotton goat milk at my regular supermarket (to make cajeta) and have seen goat yogurt at Trader Joe's.
edit to add: My info above is based on the experience of my friend only. I decided to look on the net after posting and some sites say that goat milk will not be helpful... Well-- It may be worth checking out, but I guess it is good to proceed cautiously...
