We wouldn’t recommend feeding your dog vanilla yogurt. Generally speaking, yogurt doesn’t contain any specific ingredients that would be considered toxic to pets but there isn’t much for a dog to gain from eating it. If you want to give your dog a bit of vanilla yogurt then you will need to first do a careful examination of the ingredients it contains.

One of the first things you should check is whether the vanilla yogurt contains any artificial sweeteners. Some vanilla yogurt products may contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.

The next thing to check is the fat and sugar content of the vanilla yogurt. The occasional yogurt treat won’t be of much harm but dogs that are fed vanilla yogurt on a regular basis may potentially suffer from major weight gains and obesity.

One last thing to keep in mind is lactose intolerance. A lot of dogs have trouble digesting dairy products so it’s possible for dogs to suffer from conditions like bloating and diarrhea after they eat a product that’s high in lactose content.
