Yogurt (Yoghurt) is made from dairy milk that is fermented with yogurt culture bacteria. Yogurt can be made from any animal milk, and the most popular yoghurts come from cow, goat and sheep milk.
Yogurt (Yoghurt) contains beneficial intestinal bacteria (known collectively as "probiotics"). Supplementing beneficial intestinal bacteria like acidophilus, bifidus, bifidum, rhamnosus etc.. may inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection.
Yogurt with live active cultures contains about 1 million colony forming units per container, much less than the billions of units that are present in the supplement form of probiotics.
Low lactose, meat-flavored, frozen dog yogurt treats are now available.
