Yogurt

Many milk products can cause gastric issues in our pets, but not all milk products contain high amounts of lactose, which are usually the cause of these problems. Fermented-type milk products like yogurt are in a class of their own. An excellent source of bioavailable calcium, protein, potassium and magnesium for both dogs and cats, your pets will love yogurt!

What can yogurt do for furry friends?

• Pro-biotics – with over 37 billion “good” bacteria to strengthen our pet’s tummies and can help with digestive upset;

• Yogurt will repopulate healthy bacterial flora in their digestive systems;

• Yogurt can help with the distress of a gassy pet;

• Yogurt can clear up life-ailing yeast infections depending on the severity in just days or weeks;

• If you have a pet that itches, scratches or bites at their paws, skin and ears with no reports of infection from your vet, then yogurt may help cure and relieve the yeast overgrowth if fed daily;

• Yogurt helps with picky eaters if added to their diet.

There are enormous health benefits to introducing yogurt to your pet’s feeding regime. A white all-natural or organic, plain (NO SUGAR) low fat yogurt like Greek or Kefir. Greek has up to 18g of protein, because it requires 3 times the amount of milk. Kefir contains over 37 billion bacteria per 100ml and is considered the champagne of the pro-biotic milk world!

Like all new things that you introduce to your pet’s diet, please start off slowly. A good rule of thumb is: 1 tablespoon for small dogs, 2 for a medium breed and 3 for large breeds.

In addition to organic yogurt I give River 3 tablespoons of organic cottage cheese daily with very good results.

Thanks for the tip Ellen, not sure why I haven’t thought about giving cottage cheese to change up meals.
