Another bottle feeding ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
On kitten-rescue.com they say "If you are using a commercial formula, add a quarter of a teaspoon of full fat yogurt to the first bottle of each day. This will aid in your kitten's digestion."

I know this is a stupid question, but what exactly is full fat yogurt? I have noe been able to find any that says this. Is it just plain yogurt?

Thank you!

Razzle...I believe that to be the case..but Hissy (who you can PM) would be the best person to answer that question.

It is difficult, if not impossible to find full-fatted yogurt in a normal grocery store. You can do one of two things - you can leave it out, or you can use any yogurt that isn't non-fatted. How many are you bottling?

Stonyfield Farms makes organic full-fat yogurt that you can find at natural food stores like Whole Foods.

You would also get the same benefit from a product like Bene-Bac, which you can get over the counter at many vet's offices. It's not too expensive so you might just call around and ask.

I am bottling two. (Saffy was pregnant with 3 but should could not deliver them and have to have a c-sec. It was too late for the first one. Saffy fed them herself the first two weeks, but after her third surgery in two weeks she wanted nothing more to do with the kittens. I don't think I can blame her! lol)

Tomorrow I will call a few of the all natural stores around here and see if they carry it. *Dummy slaps self for not thinking of that*

I know it is not neccesary, but I want to do everything I can for them. These are my $1600.00 dollar kittens! LOl We are so in love with them!

Thank you all so much!

My Jewel grocery store carries Stonyfield. And often if you look by the baby foods, they might have full fat yogurt or yogurt drinks. Or next to the regular yogurt, there might be an unflavored (plain) yogurt that is not lowfat.

Best of luck with your babies!
