Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Training treats   Thu Sep 06, 2012 10:04 am

I've been using the Bill-jac chicken liver treats on the recommendation of a trainer for PetSmart, and Nikko handles them fine, but Yukon has been having really runny poo, and I am trying to figure out the source. We went to the vet for his shots on Saturday and she put him on an antibiotic for it, and the diarrhea got even worse since then.

Has anyone else used these treats? (http://www.bil-jac.com/dog-treats-liver.php)
And if so, have you had issues with their poo?

Also, I need to find a treat that he A) will respond to and B) won't give him the runs.

I've used Bil-jac treats in the past without issue, but my dog is really not sensitive to anything. You could compare the full ingredients to what's in his dog food, might give you an idea if something stands out. I don't remember the ingredients and only 2 of the ingredients are listed on that site.

If he is sensitive, you could cook a plain unseasoned chicken breast and chop it up. Keep it in the fridge and use that for treats.

I actually already use boiled chicken breast and always have some in the fridge for them. I like to switch up their treats, plus I put a little with their food.

I’ll take him off the bill-jac and see if it gets better. The trainer suggested them because they are very smelly and will get them to respond better. But he also responds well to chicken.
