Yogurt safe for dogs?

Hi Everyone, I am very new to this. I am currently in business for myself as a supplier of yogurt powder, and well I came across someone whom purchase plain yogurt to make dog treat icing. I was quite suprised but I am so glad I found this site. If anyone is interested in the recipe please contact me. This is safe and will not harm your pet.
Plain yogurt is fine for dogs and may be given daily. Depending on the size of dog, you will only need any where from a teaspoon to a couple tablespoons or so. You can take yogurt and freeze it in ice cube trays for great summer treats.
Not only is it safe in small amounts I know of many people who feed daily as it helps with doggy gas.
Please provide me with any information or your feedbacks.

What are the benefits of feeding yogurt to dogs daily? My co-worker givers her dogs a spoon of Activia during each meal and always suggests that I do this as well. My dogs do not appear to have any digestive issues, so I was just wondering if there are any other benefits to it.

I like the idea about the ice cubes, my dogs LOVE ice cubes, which I am fine with as they are a perfect treat.

It seems that homemade dog treats are very popular these days, I think that if you can make a yogurt icing then that will help make them more fun to make, taste better, and possibly provide added health improvements.

Yogurt is good for dogs. Besides helping with digestion, it's also help getting rid of stinky mouth! oh... yes, also no more bad gas!! You promote good bacteria so it will kill bad bacteria, I guess. Some say that it's good as an antibacterial and prevent cancer but I don't think, I'm going to go that far. Just being happy with no stinky-licking on my face

This is really interesting because I thought that all dairy products were a 'no-no' for dogs. Not dangerous, but not good for their digestion because they don't have the enzymes to break down lactose. I understood it could give them diarrhoea or can make them vomit. I wonder if the benefits of the good bacteria in yoghurt for humans doesn't actually translate to the digestive system of dogs.

I got this from a site, just something to keep in mind when freezing yogurt...

This is from the stonyfield farms website:
You can freeze a cup of yogurt. A cup of yogurt that has been frozen and thawed will have a different look and texture than fresh yogurt. The cultures become dormant when frozen, but once thawed either in the refrigerator or by your body heat when ingested; they will become live and active once again. There will be a few cultures that do die, but there are so many billions in our products, that it is truly insignificant.

I give plain yogurt in BARF each day to help the active bacteria in the gut. Dogs are technically lactose-intolerant, but it varies from dog to dog in terms of how sensitive their tums are.

Yogourt is fine! Boris loves it, begs everytime someone eats yogourt and loves licking the bowls clean

There's good digestive bacteria in yogourt which will benefit the dog as well, so it won't do no harm.
