Antibiotics Meet Probiotics

If your furry little loved one finds himself with an infection and needs to take antibiotics there is something you can do to help him feel more comfortable.  While antibiotics are great at killing the bad bacteria they also kill the good which can cause a yucky case of diarrhea, sensitive stomach, gas, etc.  The live bacterial cultures in yogurt, called lactobacillus acidophilus, help to replenish their body with helpful bacteria or probiotics.

So how can you get your doggy to eat yogurt?  It is very easy to make an icy treat with a combination of plain non-fat regular or Greek yogurt, pureed fruit like blueberries or strawberries, and honey to sweeten it up.  Once blended just pour into an ice cube tray and freeze.  Feed your pooch an ice cube a day during treatment and for two weeks after.  Heck these are so delicious you might want to put them on the regular treat rotation and sneak one or two in for yourself!

Happy Treating!
