But Ray is not vegetable-minded. In a word, he HATES anything vegetal. So once he caught on that there was some vegetable matter lurking in his food bowl, he stopped eating it. I was left with the problem of how to treat sporadic outbreaks of, uh... digestive upsets.
On the recommendation of Rachel, Murphy's mom, I tried plain yogurt to treat Ray's uh... digestive problems. The first time he needed it, I didn't happen to have any regular yogurt in the house but did have a container of Greek yogurt. So every morning, I mixed a tablespoon of Greek yogurt into Ray's food. Worked a treat.
I found that the yogurt has a side benefit. Ray's gaseous emissions (which are copious and eye-watering) have disappeared almost entirely. So Ray gets yogurt in his food every day. The only problem now is Ray is so used to the Greek yogurt, he won't eat the regular cheap stuff. Our dog is a gourmhound.
