    I give her one little packet (premeasured) sprinkled on her food every morning--that's what the vet recommended. I started her on it when she was about 3 months and the dosage remains the same. I give my big dog one packet on his food in the a.m. too. Let us know how Tyson does on it!

    Some dogs are lactose intolerant. Yogurt (unsweetened Greek Yogurt) is a good source of pro-biotics. But it still has fat.
    Here is what I give my pup sometimes and my adult Boxer almost every day.

    Take a couple of table spoons of yogurt, water it down and churn with a buttermilk churner. You should see the fat float up.
    Remove the fat and feed the watery portion (couple of cubes of ice optional). It still has the "good bacteria" in it.
    If this works, making yogurt at home is a simple inexpensive procedure.

    Cheers.

    Thanks. I acutally ended up ordering the Bene-Bac Plus. I gave it to him yesterday. Let's see how he does. He loved the stuff.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.

    My puppy is lactose intolerant too so I stopped with the yogurt for now.

    This topic was just addressed in an earlier thread here.

    The Probiotic I use is VETRI'S DAILY PROBIOTIC CHEWS. They are available online from Chewy.com .
    My dogs love them and take them faithfully every day.
