Thread: Fish for Dogs

  1. #1

    Default Fish for Dogs

    I saw that there was a mention of this new canned food in another thread but I was just wondering, how many people here feed their dogs this?


    I have been thinking of switching Pipi over to it for various reasons but I am not entirely sure if I should make the switch or not.

    She's currently on 'Advance' and she has been for quite some time but I find she is getting sick of having the same food and earlier this morning she upchucked the 'Advance' wet food.

    I feed her SuperCoat Puppy as my vet recommended it as it has many vitamins which she requires. Is it safe to give her Fish for Dogs with the SuperCoat dry food?


    I have heard good things about Fish for Dogs but I am wanting to know if those who feed their dogs it, recommend it?

    One of the main reasons I want to make the switch is because it has so many healthy ingredients in it and helps their coats, heart etc.



    So, the main thing I am asking here is:

    Would you recommend Fish for Dogs and is it safe to feed her this with SuperCoat Puppy dry food?


    Thanks in advance.

    A tin of sardines 2 x times a week works a treat at just 69c per tin!!!

    What is Fish for Dogs? A commecially prepared food?

    Or do you mean do we feed fish to our dogs? If so, yes, freshly caught fish is great for them.

    (Thta's on the very rare occasion we ever catch the darned things!)

    In the dog food section at the supermarket they have a new tin/can food for dogs named Fish for Dogs.

    Bohemiannic mentioned it here: http://www.dogforum.com.au/dog-healt...uidelines.html

    That may help you remember.

    I just give mine sardines once a week, mixed through their dry.

    OT..The vet taking Jodi's stitches out yesterday commented on her shiny healthy coat.
    I attribute this to my choice of dry food and the addition of raw egg, sardines etc that these dogs now have.

    My blue heeler who died a year ago age 14 did not to my recollection have a shiny coat. He was fed mainly pal dry, pal tinned or raw in addition to the dry.

    Oh taa. No then, I don't feed that.

    Sardines, tuna, and fresh caught fish, can't do better IMO.

    Course, dog would have to fight me for it, naturally.

    Yep, DA, Fish for Dogs is a commercially prepared food. I havent seen it in supermarkets yet (well I havent being in over two weeks), but it's basically kibble or wet food with fish in it, much like a cats may be.
    I reckon the sardines would work just fine, Belle, but maybe you could try switching Pipi to it just to see how it works.

    ETA: I meant wet food

    Thanks, Masha.

    I am going to the supermarket later on and am going to purchase a tin to test it out first. If she likes it I will go back in the morning and get enough for the week.

    Thanks again.

    It is only by trial and error, Belle, that we find out what suits OUR dogs.

    Thanks


    I just thought it was odd that after feeding her Advance for so long, she upchucks it. She had the usual amount, no more, no less.

    Do these things just happen? Is it the taste or something else that caused her to do this?

    Perhaps she is just over it...?
