Can Cats Eat Yogurt? 7 Things to Know Before Feeding

Most cats are lactose intolerant, making dairy products like yogurt potentially problematic.

Digestive Upset

Feeding yogurt could lead to stomach discomfort, gas, and diarrhea in cats sensitive to lactose.

Probiotic Benefits

Some claim that yogurt's probiotics can aid digestion, but specific cat-friendly probiotics are safer.

Nutritional Balance

Cats need a precise diet; yogurt might not provide essential nutrients.

Safe Options

Plain, unsweetened yogurt with no additives is better if you decide to offer it.

Occasional Treat

If your cat tolerates dairy, small yogurt portions occasionally may not harm.
