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:

I give yogurt as a treat but probiotics are great! It doesn't need to be nonfat yogurt either. Dogs get their energy from proteins and fat. They don't really live long enough to worry about clogged arteries either.

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?"
