Is it OK to feed dogs whole grain bread for a treat? My Labrador Retrievers love it, and I’ve been giving it to them for years.
A:What an excellent idea for a dog treat! Whole grain bread should cause no problems for your dog when eaten in moderation, plus it contains beneficial fiber that can help maintain intestinal health. One word of warning: calories! Labrador Retrievers can pack on some extra pounds if given the opportunity, so offer small pieces of the bread, and only when your dog does something to deserve it.
