Yes. Dogs can be lactose intolerant and don’t always digest dairy well, BUT cottage cheese is fermented and therefore contains very little lactose. Its bland flavor makes it an ideal food for dogs rebounding from a sick stomach. Plus, it’s high in calcium and protein.
- Add a little cottage cheese to your dog’s usual food.
- Serve a small amount of cottage cheese on its own as an occasional treat.
- If your dog is recovering from a touchy stomach, mix equal parts cottage cheese and cooked white rice for a recovery meal.
