Hi Tricia,
My recommendation would be to purchase probiotics you can give your cat. You would have to give your cat quite a bit of yogurt to get the correct level of "friendly bacteria" to help your her which would likely end up causing more problems.

Probiotics which are "friendly bacteria" are available online, through veterinarians and at retail at a much more cost effective price than azodyl which I personally do not recommend.

I hope this information is somewhat helpful and am glad to offer further help.
Please feel free to contact our office toll free at 866-372-2765.

Thank you,
Dr Carol Osborne, DVM
