    • If you notice your dog staring at you hungrily while you enjoy a cup of yogurt, don't be such a greedy friend and give some to your canine companion. Can dogs eat yogurt, you may ask. Yes they can. Dairy products such as yogurt are mostly OK to dogs. In fact, dairy products are very healthful to dogs because they are rich in calcium, protein and other vitamins and minerals that dogs need for proper growth and development.

    • Yogurt also contain probiotics in the form of good bacteria that can aid in digestion and in boosting the immune system. There are some things though that you need to keep in mind when feeding yogurt to your dog. The most important ones can be found below. Brought to you by : www.petfoodia.com 3
    • Lactose intolerance One of the things that you should know when it comes to dairy products to dogs is that, just like some humans, some dogs are lactose intolerance. Lactose is actually a form of sugar that is found in milk. Some dogs cannot process or digest lactose properly and this is why it causes problems such as stomach upset and diarrhea.

    • If you are no sure if your dog is lactose intolerant or not, what you can do is to give him a small amount of dairy product first and then make an observation on how he will react to it. Yogurt is actually the safest dairy product that you can give to dogs because it contains a relatively small amount of lactose compared to other dairy products.

    • Moderation is key If you want to give yogurt to your dog, don't give him the whole tub. Even if you have observed that your dog is not lactose intolerant, it is still not advisable to give it a lot of dairy products even yogurt. The word to remember is moderation. You should treat yogurt as some form of treat and not a staple food for your dog. Brought to you by : www.petfoodia.com 6
    • Anyway, your dog does not need yogurt to meet its daily nutritional requirements. And if you notice a sign of negative reaction after feeding yogurt to your dog, then you must stop giving him yogurt immediately. Plain yogurt You must also understand that ingredients in some yogurt varieties may also cause health problems with your dog. Brought to you by : www.petfoodia.com 7
    • Grapes, for example, is not safe to give to dogs because it contains a toxin that can cause major health problems that can even lead to death. For this reason, the safest thing to do would be to simply give plain yogurt to your dog instead of the flavored variety. You should also make sure that you buy a good brand of yogurt, one that actually contains live good bacteria. Brought to you by : www.petfoodia.com 8
    • Consult your dog's veterinarian Before you make any changes in your dog's diet, make sure that you consult your dog's veterinarian first. Dogs have different requirements when it comes to nutrition. The vet would know what is best for your dog. There is nothing like expert advice when it comes to making sure that a dog is eating the right food. Brought to you by : www.petfoodia.com 9
