I want to know if it could help a cat. My 6yr old tom has a continuous battle with yeast infections in the ears. I would rather use some kind of home remedy rather than prescription meds to keep it under control. Thank you.
Have a purrfect day.

I believe you want to actually swab the ears with the yogurt. It might help if she eats it too, but actually applying it will work much faster. Just swab it in though, don't spoon it in!
I honestly don't know, but I can't see where it would hurt to try as long as it's yogurt without commercially added sugar flavoring and not more than a teaspoon a day. My kitty girl used to have problems with throwing up fur balls, but once I started giving her a teaspoon of cream cheese or sour cream or yogurt every morning, she has not had a single problem. So I am thinking yogurt wouldn't be harmful to try and just might keep the yeast under control as it does for we humans.
Some time ago, I read that you can give your cat or dog small amounts of yogurt to help control yeast infections on the ears. I read it should be plain, but I cannot find small containers of plain yogurt in my local supermarket. Is there any other flavor that would work as well? I only have 1 cat to use it on and probably would not use it for anything else, so it would spoil before using it all.
my cat tinkerbell will eat any flavor and no more flavor than any of them have in them I don't think it will hurt. If you make biscuits or bread use the yogurt and in cooking also. Oh by the way my cat also eats veggies.
