We know for sure the many benefits of yogurt to our human body and well, this goes for f’babies too. When you shop for your groceries do buy some for them:> And yeah, suggest buying them plain yogurt as flavoring ones contains too much sugar, so be safe, buy plain.
This power food contains essential nutrients for f’babies overall health and hey, I am not sure about you out there, but I have been practicing feeding my f’babies yogurt 2 times every week and they certainly are enjoying it. You should have seen their faces while preparing their food. Anyway, yogurt is absolutely good and here’s why……
First, the calcium found in dairy helps strengthen bones and skeletal structure.
Second, it’s friendly bacteria called acidophilus keeps the good bacteria in their intestines in balance, hence improving and regulate digestions.
Well, this is especially good for puppies too? As they are prone to yeast infections, so you may want to try adding a little bit of plain yogurt as treats or snacks or maybe dessert or adding it into their kibbles to help them fight back.
Lastly, yogurt is a relieve food for f’babies during the hot and humid weather. Just imagine them busy savoring the cold yogurt from their bowl….. trust me, you will be enjoying seeing them licking away every bits of it.
HOWEVER, warning – do not feed F’babies if they are currently experiencing diarrhea. Feeding them yogurt might make things worse. If your f’babies has history of diarrhea, you might want to introduce yogurt to them little by little ( a teaspoon to table spoon) and monitor their stools. Do you know from stools checking, you can find out how healthy your f’babies are? Anyway, back to topic. So monitor stools, if its consistently loose and runny for few days and stop giving yogurt. Bring to vet for check up.
ADVICE – have a caution mind to what and how we feed our f’babies. Too much of one thing can or might harm them. Practice balance feeding and monitor their stools.
