Yogurt for cats
I have just purchased Greek plain yogurt to try on Audrey. I have read that the probiotics in live yogurt are good for digestion. One to three teaspoons daily can help with loose stool and tummy upset. I am still working on seeing better results in the litter-box with Audrey so this is the newest addition to her daily feeding. She is a happy, active, affectionate kitten with a very healthy appetite but her stool is not right. This is what I read on-line...
The normal acid balance in the intestines can change when the pancreas is overactive, allowing harmful bacteria to flourish. This, in turn, can cause painful inflammation. Giving your pet between one and three teaspoons of live-culture yogurt will help replenish the supply of beneficial bacteria and get the intestines back into balance.
Instead, you can give supplements containing Lactobacillus Acidophilus, the same organism that is in yogurt. Make the following adjustments to the human dosage listed on the label: for pets weighing under 20 pounds, use one-fourth of the human dose; for pets 21 to 50 pounds, use one-half of the human dose; and for pets over 50 pounds, use the full human dose. Keep in mind though that live-culture yogurt, which contains a small amount of acidophilus, while not harmful, is not an adequate source of probiotics for the average animal.
Here's my grandittle all dressed up waiting for company. She has grown so much and this Christmas will be so much fun with her. Can't wait to see the big, excited eyes.
