Yogurt And Dogs; Compatible Or Not?
Most of us like yogurt and some even preserve it for further use or as a part of desserts. But what about our dogs? Can they eat it safely?
To begin with, let’s cast away all the fears: yes, dogs can consume yogurt! In fact, this dairy foodstuff is even beneficial for them, of course, if your pet is lactose-tolerant. Moreover, for dogs that can’t eat meat for some reason (for instance, if the pet has a meat allergy) yogurt can become a proper substitution and a source of protein that they need so much.
What are the major benefits of consuming this dairy foodstuff for your dog?
Yogurt contains calcium which makes the pet’s bones and teeth stronger and healthier
This foodstuff is a source of protein, so even if the dog is ok with eating meat, incorporating some yogurt into its diet will not harm
Finally, probiotics will boost the immune system of the animal and assist in proper digestion
