Can a Cat Eat Yogurt?

Can a cat eat yogurt?

Cats are carnivores, so it might not be a good idea to feed them with something very different from their regular diet. However, if your cat really likes it and she wants some, you can try giving her small portions of unsweetened and unflavored yogurt. Yogurt contains less lactose than milk, so that it might be easier for your cat’s stomach to digest.

However, there is no guarantee that she will not have digestive problems after eating it. If your cat develops diarrhea or starts vomiting after eating yogurt, don’t feed her with yogurt again. Kittens shouldn’t get yogurt at all because of their sensitive stomachs.

In fact, yogurt does not contain much protein, so it might not be the best idea to give your large cat amounts of it. Cats need high proteins in their diet because this type of food supplies them with amino acids and other nutrients that are important for their kidneys and liver function. Still, your pet might like small portions of yogurt from time to time (as long as they do not have any negative effects on her health) as a treat.

In a nutshell!

Yes, healthy cats can eat small portions of plain, unsweetened, unflavored yogurt now and then, but there are few health benefits for a cat, and it can only be a delicious treat.
