My dog, Lucy, loves her some nooch (like mother, like daughter), so I often sprinkle some on her food. Then it occurred to me to wonder how much is okay/good for her, if there's such a thing as too much, etc. A Web search comes up with nebulous answers for brewer's yeast as a canine supplement, but I'm talking about the same Red Star yeast the two-legged members of our family inhale on a regular basis. Does anyone have any info/insight about this, or am I just being a worrywart? If it helps, she weighs in at about 25 lbs., and is generally super-healthy, bouncy, happy, and active. Thanks in advance! <3

I don't know for sure, but anytime I've got something with nooch in it, my dog's all up in that. Sometimes I let her have some and she seems to love it as well. I don't think it'll hurt them, but I wouldn't give more than the sprinkles you give now until you're certain.

as long as she's not showing any allergic symptoms, i think you're safe!

Thanks so much - that's very helpful! Lucy has never shown any indication of having allergies, so it looks like Happy Noochy Sprinkle Time is go!

My pups are nooch addicts! When Gizmo sees me open the container she goes nutso. I sprinkle a tiny bit on top of their food every day and sometimes if I run out of homemade veggie mix to add to their kibble, i sprinkle a little extra, add some water and make a noochy gravy for them.

At the whole foods here they sell nooch right by the dog food so a lot of people must do it. My dogs sit by their full bowl of food and stare at me until I sprinkle some nooch on it.

What about for cats? They go crazy with wanting for it, but I never give them more than a little nibble because I'm unsure.
