The benefits of yogurt for dogs are many. And giving probiotics to dogs is an easy way to help keep your dogs healthy.
Per previous post as to making major changes with the two hounds experiencing problems with yeast I am happy to report within two weeks all signs of yeast had disappeared on both dogs. They love their new food (Zignature limited contents) are on pre and probiotics along with plain yogurt, ACV. Lost weight, are far more active, appear to feel better and as they are about to be 7 they do not show any major signs of aging. Will constantly monitor how this treatment is going and have many other options to switch to if yeast becomes tolerant of our current system.

For this reason, yogurt is not a good choice. Better options are probiotics formulated for either cats or dogs (not people) that have undergone testing to validate the numbers of live bacteria in the product.”
