    Default To all you yogurt people!

    I was answering a question to someone in a thread. I am just amazed how many of bully owner believe in giving yogurt to their dogs for probiotics. Yogurts has good probiotics for "human consumption only!" Plus its loaded of sugars. And yes I know the Internet will say yogurts are good to give to dogs but which ones? Often dogs intolerant dairy products. If you really want to give yogurt to your dog, at least use the greek yogurts. Plain...nothing in it! But I have never seen a wolf eat yogurt.

    Like ive said numerous times, give probiotics from your health food stores and the one in the fridge with "live strains"...not the one on the shelves.

    Again, this is my opinion on yogurts! You are free to do what you want and think like you want.

    Read the links attached it explains it well. I will mix Italian, French or English and confuse you more. Lolll

    @helsonwheels Helene, great post!! My own experience....when Joey was a puppy I wanted to do ALL THE BEST things for her, so.......I read about adding yogurt, well that did not go well, poor thing had loose stools for 3 days, AND it was the nothing added plain yogurt, that's when I learned the pumpkin trick for loose stools

    Great articles... I give my pups a tablespoon of fat free greek yogurt on top of their kibble for breakfast. Not so much for the probiotics benefits, but as a "treat"... I also give Wally probiotics blend at dinner time, and should start giving them to Willow too.

    One tablespoon of yogurt plain with morning meal he loves it which has helped decrease gas. Food is all dry blue buffalo wilderness red meat and salmon. Read article about using large breed formula for bulldogs and came to conclusion it was due to increased calcium and other joint nutrition for the hip problems bully's can get. Considering yogurt was more of calcium supplement.

    @sisters3 Pumpkin is great for loose stools.

    Any body, dogs, cats or humans takes a bit of time for it to get use to when you're adding something new or even like probiotics which our bodies produces on its own. We dont have enough of the good bacteria by not eating fresh or the proper way or taking meds. We can give the best kibbles on the planet but it boils down that there is still preservatives to form it as a little nugget. People forget dogs are dogs. They are supposed to eat like what mother nature gave them. There's a reason why their teeth/jaws are not like humans. Man wouldn't want to have Nyala's teeth lolll. I would love to give raw to Nyala but not if humans are behind making it. I work in the food industry and what I make is fully inspected, regulated n certified and raw is scary as I see tons of food out there not done right cause of the human. Nyala eats fresh veggies, fruits, raw game or I boil turkey for her and she gets the broth. She's also gets honest kitchen grain free. I want her to eat everything and not stick to one food everyday. Our grand parents use to give the scraps from supper table to the dogs. Yes it was cooked but was real food. Dogs back then lived for ever. Raw milk was the best thing on the planet. Didnt have allergies back then till humans started to cook up the milk n kill everything in it. Raw honey is great too. Anything that is heated to high temperatures is dead. Yogurts is a billion dollar industry. Companies will tell you...sure it's great for dogs. They just want your money. Dogs/cats are not meant to live like humans. Plain n simple. All this to say, I rather give a real live probiotic with the highest strains in it to any dog or cat and myself instead of a yogurt. Pet bird, notice they only sell what birds eats in nature? Dogs n cats are a billion dollar industry for a good reason. Ok I better stop while I can. Lolll

    I second that!!! I read a lot in here too. When it comes to food, natural way of eating or healing I have a lot of knowledge as I've been doing it for decades. But when it comes for specific bulldog issues, trust me I will start reading here. It's a breed on it's own.

    We give Jewel and Bentley probiotics twice a day. We also give them yogurt in the evening as a treat (i.e. ice cream) and it's Greek non or low-fat.

    I understand where you're coming from with big companies pushing yogurt and Probiotics; however saying that, I do notice that when one of our pups has a gurgling stomach and I give them 1/4 cup of plain whole yogurt their stomach usually stops gurgling within the hour. Not sure why but it works for us.

    That would probably be RiiSi She recommended sauerkraut to us too. I have yet to add it to the diet, but it is on my EBN list of recommendations.
