Can My Dog Eat Yogurt? – Purina

Yogurt is a good protein, calcium, and probiotics source, which can help support a healthy digestive system. However, it is important to choose plain, unsweetened yogurt and avoid any flavours that contain artificial sweeteners, such as xylitol, which can be toxic to dogs. It is also important to note that some dogs may be lactose intolerant, so if you notice any digestive upset after giving your dog yogurt, it may be best to avoid it in the future, So can dogs eat yogurt depends on the health condition of your dog and what kind of yogurt you will use.
