How would pasta compare nutritionally to other treats?

    Health food pasta, pretty much just wheat, egg, and flour.
    He loves eating it dry, and other treats can give him an upset stomach.

    Plain pasta has no nutritional value.

    We occasionally will give our macaws a piece of cooked pasta treat. The best choice IMO is Barilla Veggie Penne is made with 25% purée from fresh tomatoes and carrots.

    A dog's main diet is meat.

    I mean't as a training treat.
    Not as in what would it supply, but rather is it better than treats like Milkbone that have a bunch of crap in them and tons of calories?

    If your dog would eat a baby carrot I've heard of people use that for a treat.

    If he sees it as a treat it is a treat ! The carrots would not work for our dog as Training treat since I need something small and quick to eat for him to train him but as a treat he likes them !
