Yogurt is safe for dogs

Yogurt is a great source of calcium and protein for dogs. Yogurt is good for dogs if they are not lactose-intolerant. If you are unsure, try giving a small amount to see if your dog is able to tolerate dairy. Avoid yogurts with added sugar or artificial sweeteners which may be toxic to dogs (e.g. xylitol). Plain yogurt with active bacteria is best. Yogurt containing probiotics may help your dog’s digestive system.
