Yogurt is not on my fids menu, however their vet approves mixing with meds as a medium for disguise. He also sanctions vanilla ice cream if needed, however the amount given of either is extremely small. Don't know if a steady diet including yogurt is approved.

Re: Yogurt

didn't know Ice cream was allowed albeit in small amounts. I heard somewhere pro-bio yogurts (I hope that's the name for them) like Yakult are better but once again only in tiny quantities,

Re: Yogurt

Yoghurt seems to be a grey area, some say yes to plain, low fat (no sugar or sugared fruit (Sally Blanchard) and others say absolutely no? I have fed Plum some, it is never very much or very often.

Cheese I am reading is a definite no, except cottage cheese. Ice cream surely a no?

Re: Yogurt

Yogurt is fine for conures, also I've read on here to never give a bird milk or cheese...but then again every other person has differing ideas, after I asked about the safe foods post people were like naw I give my bird a bit as a treat all the time.

Clark loves, I mean LOVES, milk and cheese and I've never seen him in discomfort or a change in his stool, so I don't worry to much about it. Now I'm not saying replace his water dish with milk and fill the pellet cup with shredded cheese, but if he steals a bit off a pizza cheese or takes a bite of cheese stick or drinks some milk out of your cup I really don't think it hurts them in the slightest and probably gives them some good nutrients. My conure is happy and healthy.

Oh and he only gets a little maybe once a week tops. It's not an everyday thing.

Oh don't feed him like cheese whiz fake stuff or soft cheese, that isn't healthy.

But pay attention to your bird the first time, his stool and his activity.

Re: Yogurt

No doubt there are many views on dairy. I'll give mine a small piece of low-fat/low salt string cheese weekly. About the size of an index-finger nail.

I believe my vet was advocating yogurt/ice cream as a medium for disguising meds when the alternative is either no dose or partial due to spitting and flicking. A very small amount, just enough to make the mixture palatable. I prefer to not restrain and force-feed oral meds via syringe (w/o needle!) unless necessary.

Re: Yogurt

I've always been told unsweetened greek yogurt is okay. My mom, who is lactose intolerant, is able to eat that no problem. I've offered it to my bird before, but she's offended by it P:
