Cottage Cheese

Due to some (offhanded) recommendations I bought Willow some cottage cheese. One teaspoon in a cup of food and she's wolfing it down and asking for more!

Not that she's a poor eater... anything but, but I wanted to give her an extra that is really nice and healthy for her and I thought I'd try her on it.

Next we are gonna try some plain yogurt.

Question is, how much of these things should I give her?

Some of our dogs seem to be lactose intolerant and do better on yogurt than cottage cheese. Cole, being on antibiotics, gets a tablespoon of plain yogurt twice daily, an hour after his pills. The others get one tablespoon a day, on their morning meal. (Cole will, too, when he's off the pills again)

They really seem to love it. Sort of like kids with frosted cereal

Yeah, I find it funny just how much she likes it. I gave her some yesterday, and today I pull the container out of the fridge and she's trotting around licking her lips.

I just started mine on the plain yogurt and they, too, dance around when they see the container and see me pick up their bowl. I even let them take turns licking the spoon I use to stir

It's so funny how easy it is for them to recognize things.

"Oh, mommy, yummy, I like cheese!"

I give both my dogs a tablespoon of plain organic yogurt once a day with their supper meal. They love it and get all excited when I take it out of the fridge.

"how much" really depends on the dog... trial and error! my kids can eat a couple big tablespoonfuls mixed in with their dinner and have no problems, i sometimes even add yogurt to the same meal. i wish it was cheaper though, i would buy them more!

yaaayyy for willow!
