It seems that every time we try a different treat/biscuit/cookie it tends to upset Avery's stomach. I've always stuck to the training treats that he likes. Keith likes to get him these wacky treats sometimes. He came home the other day with the Pedigree Breath Buster biscuits....anyone use those?? He doesn't have bad breath anymore since he lost his puppy teeth, so I'm not sure why Keith bought them. We gave him one and he hardly even liked it. But within about an hour he had diarrhea. And It lasted all night.... he had an accident Poor little guy. I have him some rice which seemed to help but is that normal?
Does anyone else's lab have a sensitive tummy or is it because he's still a puppy that this is bothing him? I don't think a vet call is in need here.

"A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?"- John Grogan
I would touch base with your vet. You want to watch for dehydration. I would also use his kibble as treats and nothing else.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. -- Gandhi
with our diet here we have started using baby carrots for treats ...............they love them and don't mess with the diet ..................hopefully still losing some weight ...................gotta go in and get them weighed again
Personally, I think anything from Pedigree is crap.BHA/BHT sometimes associated with cancer.Wheat Flour, Oat Groats, Corn Grits, Wheat Bran, Sugar, Animal Fat (preserved With BHA/BHT), Natural Poultry Flavor, Flaxseed, Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Dicalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Eucalyptus Oil, Sodium Metabisulfite (a Preservative), Parsley Powder, Vitamins (Choline Chloride, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, D-calcium Pantothenate, Niacin, Riboflavin [Vitamin B2], Pyridoxine Hydrochloride [Vitamin B6], Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Folic Acid), Potassium Sorbate (a Preservative).

I use Science Diet sensitive if he has the odd bought treat. The ones he has most times is the rice ones I make.
I boil the rice until it is sticky, the put it in the blender with egg. The other 2 can have tuna in it, but Erns can't so his is plain. Sometimes I don't put an egg in.
I put spoonfuls onto a baking tray, flatten and bake in a slow oven untll firm. About an hour. They keep forever. Not sure how long the tuna ones last, so I freeze them to be on the safe side. The dogs love them frozen.
ETA. I don't have a measure for the rice.

Tell Keith to stop feeding your puppy junk food. You should find one type of treat (preferably a quality treat - not the crap you find in a grocery store) and stick with it. The dog won't get bored.
