Woo hoo! Thanks for the info TD. We're out of stinky fish and the doggies love it. Their fish-breath only lasts about a half hour, so not too bad.

Well it's not going to do me much good but I'm just curious so I can compare. What size can and is it sockeye or pink?

I've never seen keta salmon here. We get pink for .89 to .99 on sale and sockeye for 1.99 to 2.49 on sale. Or sometimes the big tall can for 2.99 which is when I like to stock up. Do you rinse it in water first before giving it to the dogs?

thanks for the heads up...I love a good bargain! Maybe I'll start feeding Buster fish again (things can't get any worse, so why not?!)

TD how would you factor that into the diet????

Would I just substitute the other meat for the tuna???? I figure yes but just want to be sure.

The doggies havent had fish yet is maybe tuna not a good fish to start them with???

well it's canned salmon, not tuna

salmon is a rich and fatty fish, great for coats and skin condition. i would just feed it in addition to any raw food and not really take away anything else... a small can of salmon only weighs about 200 grams. ok if you have a fat dog that needs to lose weight, maybe watch out for the calories but otherwise.. ya know?

I used to have a neighbor who would invite me over for Salmon cakes. Now that you mention canned salmon, I suddenly have a craving for salmon cakes. Gonna have to go get some salmon.

Canned Tuna tends to be a bit high in sodium. And we've all heard the murcury warnings for pregnant or nursing moms and children. Tuna's good for an occasional treat, but probably not for daily use. I've never met a dog that didn't like tuna, btw. Angie thinks the olive oil my favorite tuna is packed in is the highest treat of all (even better than ice water from Starbucks!)

From what I've read, all canned salmon on the market (at least in the US) is wild run salmon from Alaska. I don't buy farm raised fish--supposed to be high in pcb and I don't like the fact that they tend to swim around in their own feces.
