Is Yogurt Safe For Dogs?

Yes, yogurt is safe for dogs – but it is important you choose a good brand with no sweeteners or additives. Choosing a plain Greek yogurt is recommended as it is a clean product with no sugar, fruits or flavors which may not be great for you pups belly.

Plain Greek yogurt is not only high in protein, which is good for dogs it also offers your dog typical probiotic benefits to improve gut health. On rare occasions some dogs may actually be “lactose intolerant” so if you notice your dog begins to have diarrhea after eating yogurt then you should not give it to them in the future and see your vet!
