Yes all the shops will do it, normal natural live yoghurt, my vet gave me some expensive priobotics for Rusty's colitus and said when you have finished these a spoonful of live yoghurt will do just as good

another tip...apparently dogs cannot digest cows milk very well, some are fine with the live yogurt tho....but you can get natural live Goats Milk yogurt in the supermarkets now, granted only bigger branches not the tiny Tesco Express sized one's...I use Goats Milk for Merry's cereal meal and the Goats Milk yogurt and now the boys get a spoonful of that ....if your hairy angel has an upset already I would go straight to the Goats Milk yogurt first .

Success!
Whilst walking lewis he passed what I would class as a "normal" one!!!
He still has a few days tablets left and then a return trip to the vet to look forward to!
Thank you all for the help and advise that has aided lewis to return to good health.
