Can You Freeze Greek Yogurt For Dogs?


Yes, you can just freeze Greek yogurt for dogs.  However, it won't have a lot of flavor.  Your dog will like this frozen yogurt dog treat recipe if you add some fruits or berries.


Is Yogurt Good For Dogs?


Yogurt has probiotics in it, which can promote digestive health in dogs like it does for humans.  It also has protein and calcium that may benefit your dog.


When choosing yogurt to make frozen yogurt dog treats, look for a plain yogurt that doesn't have any added sweeteners or favors.  Make sure it does not have xylitol, which is toxic for dogs.


Greek yogurt has less lactose than regular yogurt.  I use Greek yogurt to make my frozen yogurt dog treats.


Additionally, you should also look for yogurt that has lots of live cultures, such as plain, Greek-style yogurt. This yogurt is better because it has lower levels of lactose than regular yogurt for probiotic dog treats.





Can I Give My Dog Yogurt Every Day?


Although yogurt can promote digestive health with its probiotics, some dogs can't digest the lactose in milk.  Lactose or too much lactose can cause vomiting, gas, or diarrhea.  


I feed my dogs this frozen yogurt dog treat recipe a few times a week and only one at a time.


Is Greek Yogurt Good for Dogs?


Greek yogurt can be good for dogs because it has probiotics.  It's higher in protein than regular yogurt.  


Make sure you use a plain yogurt with no added sweetener to make frozen dog treats DIY.


Should Dogs Take Probiotics?


Just like with humans, some dogs may benefit from probiotics in these frozen yogurt dog treats.  Probiotics can regulate their gastrointestinal tract and could decrease GI symptoms.


If you want to supplement with probiotics, try Zesty Paws Probiotics or Pet Naturals Probiotic Dog Treats.


Do Probiotics Help With Dog's Bad Breath?


Giving your dog a probiotic or probiotic dog treats may help improve their breath.  The good bacteria may crowd the bad bacteria that can cause bad breath.  





Yogurt or Kefir Frozen Dog Treats DIY


You can use either plain Greek yogurt or plain kefir to make this frozen blueberry dog treats recipe.  Kefir is a fermented cow's milk drink that has probiotics in it.


Kefir has up to three times as much probiotics in it.  If your dog needs probiotic dog treats, then you can use kefir.  


This homemade frozen dog treats recipe will work with either Greek yogurt or kefir.  I use my Instant Pot cold start yogurt to make these frozen blueberry dog treats.


Fruit or Berries for Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats


Dogs can eat strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.  You can also use pumpkin or sweet potato in this frozen dog treat recipe.  


Avoid giving your dog cherries, grapes, or raisins.
