Tasty treat but unreliable treatment

Yogurt is often given to dogs to promote growth of intestinal microflora, which allows for easier digestion of food. This can be a tasty, healthy treat but it does not have any particular effect on dogs suffering from anal sac disease. While they may have difficulty defecating, the best solution to solve the problem is to treat the cause of anal sac disease through medication or procedures recommended by the veterinarian. Using yogurt as a home remedy will not curb most symptoms of the disease, and if left untreated, anal sac disease could easily get worse.
