Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.
So sorry to hear your Boxer has had pancreatitis but glad to hear you are being proactive about preventing a relapse.
Below is a great article that describes what to look for in a treat and options that are available. In essence the lower fat (<8%) the better for minimizing relapse. You have to scan down to the lower part of the article to find information on treats:

One thing I prefer is the freeze dried meat treats. Not jerky but freeze dried treats as these as an example below:
