Q: Is Cottage Cheese and plain yogurt good for dogs?

I have heard from 2 different vets, one said to give it to my dog, the other said not to. I am also finding mixed answers online. I have tried it with my dog, and he likes both of them. I just wanted to hear what other dog owners thought of the matter.

I give my puppies plain yogurt or plain cottage cheese with their food for calcium....it helps make their bones stronger. My boy Iggy Pop had such weak pasterns when I got him bumping up the calcium in his food with yogurt did the trick.

When Priscilla was nursing I would go through cartons of cottage cheese...the protein/calcium ratio is better than yogurt. And it upped her milk production too.

Just this week I was at the vets office and I asked him what I could use to get Dakota to gain a few pounds because he's so active and loses weight . He said cottage cheeese should work perfectrly a table spoon with his food everyday. So there you have it cottage cheese is perfectly fine to give your dog.

My dog was put on cottage cheese from the Veterinarian. He really enjoys it. I read where the lactose in cottage cheese is broken down during the process and there is no lactose in it since they say dogs are lactose intolerant. The one thing that your dog may become allergic to is the SALT in the cottage cheese. Some dogs are allergic to salt then try the no salt. Otherwise I think it is fine. LOWFAT also.
