sardines
      #301098 - 01/06/17 11:46 AM

anyone feed their dogs sardines for joints instead of pills? i've been feeding them some but finding some safe to eat is kinda perplexing. i've found on occasion harvested in canada which i'm comfortable with. others come from poland which i thought was landlocked and near the russians. and starkist says to be kosher but from thailand the land of tiger shrimp. the most minimal ingredients seems sea salt

TKS guys, I've never heard of feeding a hard working dog sardines or herring, macherel or any other fish.
I know that many sled dogs in Alaska and Canada usually eat fish and mostly char - very high in fat and Omega3 (Inuit sled dogs).

Poland has a sea coast on its Northern border on the Baltic Sea.

Historically Poland was land locked with Prussia forming its Northern border. Today's Polish sea coast on the Baltic Sea was Prussian coasts.

After WW1 Poland was 'given' a small finger of land, the "Danzig Corridor" to the Baltic Sea, which separated German East Prussia from Eastern Germany proper. This was a sore point with Germany and one of the reasons for the invasion of Poland in 1939.

Off topic, but history and answering your question.

As for fish topic, why are some sardines not suitable? The bones are a problem for dogs? Or the 'dressing' which accompanies the sardines?

Good topic. My old pooch might need some rich fishy items added to his diet. Getting thinner and weaker in the rear end/hips.

Hoping this is still on topic?

Do any Aussies feed their dogs fish at all? If so what? ie what is affordable? And not too bony?

Fish tends to be expensive on this continental island surrounded by sea .... no idea why, when in theory the Southern Ocean and other seas should make fish and seafood here cheaper than anywhere else. Perhaps we have too much farmed seafoods, rather than trawler wild seas caught? The Japs, Koreans, Taiwanese, etc come down here with massive trawlers to fish huge quantities of fish, but us Aussies stupidly pay through the nose high prices ...

My Blitzen does enjoy salmon in his diet. But only when I stupidly leave it go off in the fridge, cooked or uncooked ... I think Salmon would be excellent for dogs.

Usually I would think fish too good for a dog, and much better in the human diet.

I would think sardines in olive oil would be good for them.

We don't, or at least I don't, think much of fish in my dogs' diets.
Probably because here in CO there isn't any low cost source for fish that I'm aware of other than catching carp or something similar myself.
Surely would be a good thing for them I would think and I should probably add a bit in.
They sure go nuts for cooked trout skin, that's for sure!
For a hunting dog, I'm not sure I would want too much fish or fish oil in their diet during hunting season as it thins the blood and cuts bleed more than normal - same in humans.

I had my dogs into the vet the other day. They are at their slimmest this time of year and my vet told me to add cooked pasta into their diet if I wanted them a bit heavier.
Once the cool weather is here they will fill out again naturally but maybe I'll do that just to see what happens.
One surgeon I know here puts her malnourished patients on an ice cream diet - meaning lots of ice cream - before performing surgery. Helps with wound healing and pain management apparently.
