Benefits and contraindications in taking yogurt by cats. According to experts, yogurt provides significant benefits to the cat's body, but be careful not to underestimate possible contraindications. However, contact your veterinarian before giving it to the cat.
Asked if cats they can eat yogurt, we must first of all reiterate the importance of not giving dairy products to cats.
These in fact constitute a particularly harmful food, to which other foods considered toxic for our cat friends must be added! For it yogurt the speech is different, but before a possible administration, it is good that you contact a veterinarian who will be able to advise you in the best possible way.
It certainly varies between cat and cat, but yogurt has been shown to be a valid one ally for his health. The important thing is to know choose the right one and definitely not to exceed the doses.
Yogurt with fruit and the like or plain yogurt?
Much better the white one that does not contain sugars added. In fact, you know that sugar can cause serious damage to the cat, as well as the intake of sweets and chocolate. Many argue that it would even be more appropriate to use it Greek yogurt. The reasons lie in the almost absence of sugars and fats. If you use a plain yogurt, prefer the unpasteurized one, as it contains a minimum part of lactose or is even absent.
Why use it?
Yogurt embodies a number of benefits which have a positive effect on the health of the cat.
- well-being of teeth and gums: yogurt in fact has some bacteria which keep the dental flora unaltered and thus allow for healthy gums and teeth
- intestinal well-being: if the cat has diarrhea or cramps, a small amount of yogurt, to be administered before the baby food, can significantly improve or even eliminate the intestinal problems.
- well-being of the immune system: you will certainly have given your cat antibiotics for some problem. You should know that basically the main feature of the antibiotic is to eliminate the harmful bacteria that cause a certain disease. However, since the antibiotics are quite strong, not only will they eliminate the harmful bacteria, but, many times, they can cause the destruction of the "good" bacteria present in the cat. In this case, yogurt allows you to reintroduce all of the cat's immune system "good" bacteria that have been lost with the use of the antibiotic.
- nourishment: yogurt allows the cat to assimilate calcium, which is essential for strengthening the bone structure and the muscular system, potassium, which among its many properties is an excellent ally for strengthening muscles and especially nerves, and finally magnesium.
Can it be given to all cats?
To answer this question we must first say that yogurt contains bacteria that totally or almost completely remove action of lactose, which we know are very often not tolerated by cats.
It has been found, however, that in cats very allergic to lactose, yogurt can still be harmful. Therefore, we always recommend that you contact your trusted veterinarian, so as not to happen in inconvenient situations, which can put a strain on the well-being of the cat.
Do you sometimes give yogurt to your cats? let us know!
Not everyone knows, cats and olive oil they are not enemies, on the contrary. Unlike other fatty foods, olive oil has all the healthy characteristics of natural unprocessed foods. Q So any creatures who take it (including cats) will take healthy supplements.
Incorporating fruit and vegetables into cats' diets is generally a good idea, but before doing so it is very important to know the specific properties of each fruit or vegetable: each of them can have a different impact on our cat, sometimes even actively harmful.
THE cats and seafood they are a possible association, in some way also recommended, given that they are carnivorous quadrupeds, which must take the right amount of taurine. When we have to think about the diet of our four-legged friend, in addition to availing ourselves of the opinion of our control veterinarian - who knows any previous clinical and breed characteristics -, we must be sure that he is getting the right nutritional intake.
Cats and exotic fruit , do they get along or is it better to avoid this pairing? Our little cats can eat fruit, even tropical and more particular ones, but we must always give them in moderation without ever exaggerating with the quantities.
