    DefaultRice cripsies.....

    Anything wrong with feeding rice cripsies to a dog as a treat/snack? The odd time I've given my dog Rocky a bit in his bowl and just loves them. I assume there is nothing wrong with giving him some from time to time?

    I've used crispix as training treats in a pinch, I imagine as long as they're used in moderation it's ok.

    It's funny how a humans definition of 'moderation' is far different than a Labs when it comes to food. ;D

    We've never had a problem with Cheerios or Life (in moderation, of course).

    Since all the pet food recalls I just give the girls Cheerios as treats. They love them.

    Have you ever eaten anything that is bad for you, jlab?

    They may be inappropriate foods for a canine but in moderation they are not going to suffer from eating a few Rice Crispies now and then.

    Why would you feed something on a regular basis that would cake inbetween teeth and eventually cause tooth decay? You could brush your dog's teeth after every snack but who wants to go through all that?

    Why would you feed something even in moderation would get your dog hooked on sugar and all the problems associated with it? Of course if you accidentally dropped something like this on the floor and your lab scooped it up, then it's probably not going to cause any long term harm. But years of feeding something like this even in moderation could eventually cause serious problems.

    If you have a choice, why not feed something that's healthy or less likely to be harmful in the long run?
