Whenever I have a cup of yogurt, my dog is always staring me down. So when I am finished, I give her the cup to lick out what is left. Before doing this, I first wanted to make sure dogs could eat yogurt, so I did some research online.
Yes, dogs can eat yogurt. It’s actually a good source of calcium and protein for your dog. If you are going to choose a yogurt that is specifically for your dog, choose one that has live active bacteria and no sugars or artificial sweeteners. Feeding your dog a yogurt that is full of live bacteria, means you are providing them with probiotics.
It’s also important to consider a fat-free yogurt for all the doggies out there who might be a few pounds over weight. (Stay away from fat substitutes in your yogurts, such as Olestra and other nasty ingredients).
Another option for your dog is frozen yogurt. It will last longer and keep your dog cool on a hot summer day.
