Is it OK to feed dogs whole grain bread for any treat? My Labrador Retrievers like 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 moderately, 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 because of the opportunity, so offer small bits of the bread, and only whenever your dog does something to deserve it.
