2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

What does everyone think of theese. Are there better treats that I should be using. Currently trying to route tundra slightly loose poop issue. Soft like soft serve ice cream at times. Normally better but not like as solid as it seems it should be. Maybe thats just my opinion. Also looking at changing foods id its not the treats. Ps vet check perfect.

Look at raw bones for a teeth cleaning alternative to milk bones. The bone marrow is good for them. A little bit of plain pumpkin should help firm up poop. Knowing what you currently feed would help us know if the food is known to be a bad poop cause. Really high protein foods can give young dogs trouble.

The food im feeding is a brand made for and only sold by walmart canada called actrium holostic. The info is in a seperate post from a bit ago. Seemed decent according to a few ppl on here. I love the pricepoint but ultimately would rather quality. By raw bone do u mean items like denta sticks ect. Or .... we are using the treats for training. So he does get a few some times

Milk Bones notoriously give Gabby loose/runny stool. I really dislike them. And it is what they always tend to give out at the counter of stores where she is allowed into. She can normally have 1 or 2 and be OK but anything more than that can almost give her diarrhea. I would change your treats to something more high quality. We use lots of different treats but normally look for ones that have more organic food in them. Ones that the first ingredient is either a meat or a fruit/veggie and NOT wheat.

Hi Psingletongolf,

I think milk bones are fine in moderation, but for something you can find at any grocery and convenience store these days, leads me to believe it's not exactly the most nutritious or healthy treat you can offer to your dog.

I like using freeze dried liver. It's cheap, easy to break up, and literally it's just beef liver. The less amount of ingredients the better in my opinion.

Cheers!

By raw bone I mean like from the butcher shop or meat market where they have carved the meat for roasts or different things off the bone. You can get raw beef bones cheap and they are good for keeping dogs busy and cleaning teeth. For some reason though I thought you meant the dental milkbones, like the busy bones and not their biscuit treat line. As for basic treats, yes, look for something higher quality perhaps without all the grains and additives. I too feed liver treats and dehydrated fruit. Mine love blueberries.
