Feeding Fish

Raw Whole Small Fish

How To

In fact, some coastal wolf populations have been observed eating raw fish as a majority of their diet.
Feeding small wild caught fish will help you avoid heavy metals in your dog’s diet.
Raw fish contains thiaminase, an enzyme that interferes with the absorption of thiamine.  If fed every day exclusively this can lead to problems.
Limit feedings to a few times a week or ferment the fish to avoid this problem all together. One ounce of raw fish contains about 50 calories so you can use the fish to replace an ounce of commercial raw food or just include it in your dog’s caloric intake when feeding a homemade diet.
