Yep...that's the right yogurt. For ROcket, I added one TABLEspoon to his food....anything less than that didn't make a dent his noxious butt! Rocket is around 80 lbs, if that helps at all :D

Many yogurts don't contain enough, if any, of the active cultures that are required to benefit your dogs digestive system. Even if it is a quality yogurt, that does contain these active cultures, I doubt very much there would be enough of them in a teaspoon of yogurt to make any difference in your dogs digestive system. You would be further ahead to hit a health food store and purchase some probiotics like these. Just get the capsules, open them up, and sprinkle it on top of the dogs food.

^^What she said.

Most yogurt you buy in the supermarket doesn't even contain active, live cultures. You have to read the fine print.

But the supplemental probiotics are better anyway - or you could just switch to a kibble that contains them.

You know it's bad when even the DOG is disgusted by his own farts...we know it's going to be a doozy when Rocket suddenly gets up and leaves the room...and man...that smell LINGERS...it follows you and won't let you go until you gag at least once :lol:

Zoe used to have an awful butt until we changed her food to Natures Variety. She used to let a SBD (Silent But Deadly) rip, then turn around and look at her butt as if to say, "did that smell come out of there?"
