While cottage cheese is ok to give to dogs since it was taken from the milk before the nutrients are stripped, there isn't really a NEED for it. It is much more beneficial to add yogurt to your dog's feeding because it is a pro-biotic.
Yogurt has digestive enzymes which is healthy bacteria that helps a dog digest the food better, as well as strengthen his or her immune system. I mix it in with my dog's food every day. In order for this to be effective though you must buy yogurt with AT LEAST 6 LIVE CULTURES. In other words do not buy Yoplait; however, most grocery stores have an organic food section, which is the best place to find such yogurt. I use Stoneyfield Organic.
What yogurt does for your dog:
Nutritionally rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.
Great for their digestive track
Makes their coat look excellent
Great for their immune system
YOGURT NEEDS TO BE MIXED WITH ACV (ALSO A PRO-BIOTIC) BECAUSE THE STRUCTURE OF YOGURT CANNOT BE OPENED BY THE BODY AND THE ACV SUCCESSFULLY DOES THAT; MOREOVER, IT KEEPS THE BODY ALKALINE.
OK.... Cottage cheese is good to feed IF the dog needs fat. Cottage cheese is high in good fats but you feed better fat to a dog by actual animal fat. If going all RAW there is no need to feed cottage cheese because RMB give you better calcium than a processed milk product. I never feed cottage cheese. I feed yogurt and ACV mix because it is the dairy I add into the diet as well as a probiotic.
