Thread: Raw fishbones and dogs

  1. #1

    Default Raw fishbones and dogs

    So we caught a heap of australian salmon today. How do dogs go eating raw fish with bones? I'm worried that they might get caught in his throat .. obviously if they make it to his stomach they'll dissolve. Anyone?

    We feed all our RAW fish whole.........katy is really good at treating them alike a bone and sometimes leaves the part of the spine.......But she has eaten it from 8 weeks old. Annabelle leaves nothing.......But our fish are not as big as Salmon. We feed a lot of bait size fish and trout (self caught)) Also I have newfs..They grind with their jaws, you should see what they do with large bones

    hmmm ... jack will chomp a lamb shank down no worries, i'm just worried he'll try and eat the bones whole and get stuck in his throat. Might not take the risk

    beloz, australian salmon aren't salmon like atlantic salmon incase you didn't know. They eat ok(and i mean ok, not good), but we're getting heaps of snapper atm so salmon are either dog food or bait for other bigger better eating fish

    That is a really good question jack. I also have only fed small fish or fillets as im not sure about the bones. Cats dont have trouble with fish bones, would the same apply to dogs?

    If you don't know, maybe it's better to play it safe and not risk it - remove the bones from the fish first(?).

    Mine have only had sardines and I am not going to feed them trout that hubby periodically catches on trips.
    If I had a freezer full then yes, I would give them some.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    you wouldn't be concerned about bones from the trout getting caught in their throats? the salmon i have would be very much like a trout, but kinda big ones(well compared to the norm down here)
