Dogs across Australia now have a new addition to their meals as Chobani, an Australian yogurt brand, releases a plain, low-fat and lactose-free yogurt for dogs – Daily Dollop.
Made with simple yet effective ingredients including skim milk, lactase and live yogurt cultures, Daily Dollop is intended for dog-owners seeking a healthy snack for their canine companions. It’s packed with probiotics and gentle on tummies.
Available in early September and exclusively sold in the chilled pet food section at Woolworths supermarkets, Daily Dollop yogurt is a healthy option to introduce into dogs’ diets. It can serve as an addition to daily meals, an easy snack or as a mix-in to spice up dry food.
“At Chobani, we always strive for our products to be delicious, nutritious, natural and accessible and we’re so excited to now extend our range to include dogs!” Chobani Australia general manager Growth, Olivia Dickinson said.
“There’s only three ingredients in Daily Dollop yet it’s filled with an abundance of protein and calcium to help keep dogs healthy.”
High in protein and calcium, Chobani’s Daily Dollop helps strengthen bones and teeth and can be slowly introduced to dogs’ daily food, allowing them to become accustomed to the taste.
Gourmet pet food options have become increasingly popular in recent years, with the pet food production industry now worth $2.6 billion a year in Australia.
With around 40 per cent of households in Australia including at least one dog, many are considered part of the family. It’s only natural that owners are focused on the welfare of their pet, including what type of food they’re fed.
With Daily Dollop now on shelves, health-conscious pet parents can add it to their baskets as a nutritious addition that comes recommended by veterinarians.
“Yogurt is such a great source of nutrients for pets, especially dogs, and Daily Dollop serves as a welcomed addition to their daily protein and calcium intake,” Animal Emergency Service veterinarian Dr Brooke Schampers said.
“I highly recommend Aussies start getting on board with feeding their canine friends a bit of yogurt during mealtime.”
Launched in Australia in 2012, Chobani has become one of the nation’s go-to yogurt brands, offering premium products to Australians and now, their pets too!
