    with everything that is going on with Oliver right now he gets 1 timed feeding when i get home from work.I put his kibble in the bowl then i blob some wet food in on one side and the yogurt on the other and put it down for him.Normally he gets food when we are done eating dinner but he is also free fed.But with everything going on we need to carefully watch how he eats.

    I added about a teaspoon full in her wet food and LOL she finished her food really quick. So she seems to love yogurt so I just made a frozen one with kibble and carrots and stuffed it in her kong.

    But probably wouldn't give it that often as I don't want her to get fat :eek:

    So how much is too much yogurt for dogs? I'm sure you measure how much you give and probably not everyday, right?

    Not sure there is too much yoghurt.

    When I give a meal my GSD gets

    1kg tub of yoghurt
    1 banana
    1 raw egg

    and then whatever else I have around.
