Purina ONE brand pet food is adding yogurt to its full line of dog and cat food formulas. Yogurt and other highly digestible protein sources in Purina ONE help contribute to pets' healthy digestion and total body health. The product is formulated to be lactose-free.
Hmm. Do I have to comment?

It may have yogurt, but it's still Purina...

I say put yogurt in Solid Gold to make it even better. I'm not feeding Purina.

I wouldn't feed Purina either. I do put yogurt in Hazel's dinner every night though. Idea courtesy of Pets.ca!

lactose free yogourt...

but yogourt has enxymes that break down lactose...making it easier to tolerate...

I guess if it was fresh yogourt they wouldn't need to worry about modifying it to take out the lactose...

JUST BUY FRESH YOGOURT AT THE DEPANNEUR!!!!!!!!

I just started giving capone yogurt. Can someone actually tell me all the benefits it has?

I do know it helps with allergies and also for a shiney coat.

It's the bacteria that it has. There are a lot of bacteria in there (granted, not nearly as many as there are in bacteria supplements) that are naturally in the body already, and are very helpful to us. As long as the good bacteria outnumber the bad, we are less prone to infection, and our immune system doesn't have to work too hard. Yogurt helps keep the numbers of good high.

If you ever go on antibiotics, eat tons of yogurt. All the surface bacteria (meaning anywhere that is not completely internal- like the lungs, skin, nether regions...) take a hit and the bad (bacteria/fungi/flagella) can take advantage and take over (why women get yeast infections when on antibiotics, and men can get fungal infections... ). Yogurt helps replenish the good to keep the bad at bay.

Just so you know though, if you really want to get serious about bacteria, you should ask a vet or naturopath about bacteria supplements. If you ever buy any, keep in mind that they should always be in the fridge. Some people believe that yogurt just doesn't have enough bacteria to be overly beneficial...

I give Buddy yogurt every day he loves it. In the summer we have yogurt ice cubes and I freeze his fish oil supplement in it and in the winter just on top of his food. I find it really helpful when he is on antibiotics his ear infections tend to clear up in half the time. I would not feed purina either and he loves the yogurt on his food not in it. Then he would not consider it a treat.
