Thread: Fish Oil Supplements

  1. Default

    Fish Oil Supplements are great. They have a lot of benefits together with other supplements.
    Border Collies are like potato chips, you really can't have just one…

    I also give my dogs Ester C to keep their immune system up..

    Kaer, sorry if this is an obvious question but am I right in saying that the main source of meat you are feeding your dogs is fish? If so, may I ask why you have chosen fish as the main source?

    Raw fish is ok, but be a bit careful with Salmon

    Salmon Poisoning Disease is a potentially fatal condition seen in dogs that eat certain types of raw fish. Salmon (salmonid fish) and other anadromous fish (fish that swim upstream to breed) can be infected with a parasite called Nanophyetus salmincola. Overall, the parasite is relatively harmless. The danger occurs when the parasite itself is infected with a rickettsial organism called Neorickettsia helminthoeca. It’s this microorganism that causes salmon poisoning.

    Cleasanta - do Australian (farmed) salmon get that? I never heard of it before - not that this means anything.

    This is the info from an Australian Government doc about the risks associated with importing Canadian Salmon.
    http://www.daff.gov.au/__data/assets...3/2001-29a.doc

    Disease agent: Neorickettsia helminthoeca Disease name: Salmon Poisoning disease, Elokomin Fluke Fever
    Susceptible species: Dogs show symptoms. Trematode vector will develop in cats.
    Adverse consequences in Australia?
    (Yes / No)
    Occurrence: Australia: Exotic. Worldwide: North western United States and Canada.
    Potential hazard? (Yes / No): No
    Reason(s) for removal: Risk Unlikely, Three host lifecycle unlikely to be sustainable in Australia
    Intermediate snail host is restricted to north western USA.
    Dog to dog transmission very rarely reported.

    Ie even if Australian dogs eat fresh Canadian Salmon - we don't have the snails that make the infection possible.

    IMO real Salmon is was to expensive for humans let alone pooches.
    A good raw fish with plenty of oil in it is Mullet (fresh or salt water). Other oily fish are Mackrel (spanish, spotty and school), Tailor and Australian Salmon (not really a salmon but also known as Khawai in NZ.) Mullet, Tailor ,Kahwai and pilchards are very cheap compared to most fish species. Any fish that is used for smoking is usually full of oils. Very large Spanish mackrel caught in the Hervey Bay area could contain ciguatera which affects dogs aswell as humans so best to avoid these fish and any really large reef species aswell.

    My Ridgeback loved to eat fresh frozen Mullet, absoloutely loved it !!

    Erm - based on the article - australian salmon can't get the infection. Only Salmon from north america - where the snails live can get it.
