Is plain yogurt ok every now and then? Say a tbls or 2 with breakfast? I have done that a few times, didn't affect her, just wondering.

Have a great day! :)

Yougurt is a natural probiotic and is a great food for pets - I give mine a little at a time. Less for cats tho who do not handle dairy products well.

Yes, just make sure that it is both plain and unsweetened as the artificial sweeteners in some yogurts are very bad for dogs (and cats too, I would imagine).

A plus is that the probiotics in yogurt help to alleviate and excess gassiness... ;)

Our dogs get a tablespoon or two of plain yogurt with their breakfast meal. They love it and it keeps their digestive systems on track! :thumbs up

We up the amount of yogurt they get if they're on antibiotics. It helps prevent the diarrhea that can occur with the meds--but you have to be careful...dairy products can interfere with some antibiotics. If we need to, we give them the antibiotic first, then the yogurt a few hours later.

I give both my boys a tablespoon of plain organic yogurt once a day with their evening meal.

My dogs like yogurt in their Kongs as a treat. I fill then freeze the Kong. Oh and then I forget that the Kong is in the freezer until I pull something out for supper.:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
