Im just curious if it would be alright to have raw meals that are mostly fish?
Puppy was loving his different foods, but now wont eat chicken anymore:shrug: He loves sweet potatoes, but turns his nose up at his dinner if it has any other veggie ( no matter how pureed)

He is slowly starting to pick through his meals now, and eat what he feels like ( pertaining to the meats)
He loves fish, He will eat anything if there is fish in his bowl, so to my question,
is it alright if he eats more fish than other meats?

I'm not sure it would be good to be the main meat source all the time. I try and feed it 2-3 times a week, but thats about it. For supper last night he had 4 mackerel! But variety really is the key, that way they get the nutrition from different sources.

I think that variety is the key to a healthy natural diet so I don't think that any diet should ever be too heavy on a single protein.

Fish is of particular concern for me because of the mercury levels... I feed it no more than twice a week.

BTW - 4 mackeral!!!?!?!? HOLY SMOKES - Dodger needs 1 as a meal:p
