I'm not sure, and I was thinking about that myself... Sam had a few spoonfuls of my yogurt the other night and he loved it but again, I really am not sure what you should give and how much...

Sorry i'm not much help... Someone here will have the answer though!

we have used plain yogurt in treats. I will put maybe a spoonful or so in a kong with other treats and freeze it. There are recipes of dog treats using yogurt. I recently found some where you mix yogurt (plain) and pumpkin and spoon it out and freeze it (grain free).

I found this recently (haven't tried it yet)...

Yogurt and Pumpkin treats. You take:
Equal parts plain yogurt and 100% pumpkin canned (not the pumpkin pie mix) Mix together until well blended.
Spoon cookie size treats onto the pan, then into the freezer.
They freeze in about an hour.
Take them off the pan and into a freezer bag.

I don't think it's bad to mix w/her food...I just tend to not add anything to their food bowls because I don't want them to expect things other than their normal dog food in there. Besides that I don't see any problems with it.

My kids get yogurt occasionally on their food. Miko didn't like the plain and would actually eat around it. Vanilla low fat yogurt on the other hand.........GONE!! :wink:

Denver gets a full cup of yogurt every other day
all with my vet's approval. I do not give low fat, but rather regular.

I give both my girls a small tablespoon of regular plain yogurt
mixed in their food morning and night.
Too much more than that and their stool is too soft...
and then Coco's anal glands become a problem!
Started that when they were tiny and never gave it up.
They like it....but will eat whatever is in front of them....
especially if I am not looking!!
( meaning they will try to sneak
something off the counter if they can....
though Coco is pretty much broken of this habit...thankfully!!!!)

we use stonyfield lowfat plain - normally 2 tablespoons mixed in with breakfast. we started doing it at night too since she is losing her teeth and thought it would help her eat...but it seems to have given her diarrhea...!! so back to just yogurt in the am...!

i thing it has helped significantly with her SBD's - hasn't been a problem since we started her on it, and her ears are "pristine" per the vet. yogurt helps keep yeast at bay.

and i use stonyfield because i work ther and it is free :D but it's nice that it is organic and would feed her that regardless :lol:

Bogie has had a couple tablespoons of plain yogurt when he was on some heavy duty antibiotics and de worming stuff.
Plus.....if he has a loose stool, I might give him 2 TBSP 2X's a day.

Oh! My goodness!! SBD's are "silent but deadly" toots....as in room clearing gas troubles!!

Yogurt with live acidophillus cultures replenishes the gut after antibiotics...which kill the friendly bacteria with the bad...so it helps restore the natural balance for good digestion and elimination....helps fight against yeast infections by the same balancing act....has lots of beneficial properties and actions....for humans and dogs.

I gave Chouette some Activia, and then noticed that it uses corn syrup as a sweetener and I was trying to stay away from corn products if possible to avoid allergies and yeast infections. So I switched to plain yogurt for her. Sometimes I add it to her food but I don't do it on any regular basis. I use it myself, especially when I've been on antibiotics like now. I used to do the same with my kids; at the time the pediatrician had never heard of doing that to replenish the intestinal flora! But it always worked for us.

Max previously if given more than a teaspoonful or two of yogurt would get SBD's :roll: and it's almost time to try it on him again to see if his digestive system has changed at all.

in past i've give them plain, vanilla and once in a great while blueberry, pineapple or strawberry banana yogurt
Dannon fruit on the bottom hahahaaaaaaaa
