    What food are you currently feeding and what protein is in it? My mom switched her Lab mix to Purina ProPlan Senstive Skin and Stomach (or whatever it's called) and he has excelled.

    Why do you think your dog has a sensitive stomach?

    I wouldn't recommend Large/Giant breed specific food - it's not required for a Labrador. The ProPlan Sensitive Skin & Stomach is salmon-based, so he might do well on that.

    I think there are other brands that have sensitive stomach formulas, but none that I have experience with.

    i think he has a sensative stomach because he has loose stool alot.. usually starts firm & ends soft. gets worse if he has treats or is left alone too often (in his mind). he thinks 2 hrs 3x a week is too much

    I don't think that's just having a sensitive stomach - there could be underlying issues such as worms or something else causing loose stool. Before you change food, I would drop off a stool sample to the vet and have them check it out.

    Also, if a dog goes several times a day, EACH stool isn't going to be rock solid perfect. Morning stools are hard. Evening stools tend to be softer. If the dog has anxiety issues, that will trigger it (stress). Could be parasites. The treats you give could just not agree with the dog (I used to give one kind that gave ONE of my dogs the WORST gas ever...).
