2 doctors agree

In brief: Unsure

It should not cause a problem unless they have kidney issues or something else.
Would need to know more about their health before could answer more.

In brief: Yes.

The 2 main reasons to avoid excessive protien are liver failure and kidney failure, otherwise protein shakes and supplements should be safe.
