I am leery of products containing fish though because of the mercury content in fish. They tell us not to eat it more than twice a week and cooking does not get rid of mercury why would it be safe for dogs to eat everyday? I once asked a dog food company I think it was an Arcana rep about the mercury in the fish and she would not answer my question at all she had lots of answers for other things but not the fish because they know its still there. I remember the recalls for excessive Vitamin D. that was only in the prescription canned food as I remember. I was concerned earlier years ago with the Chinese wheat gluten I was feeding another boxer of mine Iams when that happened and Royal Canin was part of that one so hopefully they have learned their lesson and will be more careful but food slip ups happen in human food as well.

Joeponds, I agree, we could go on an on about kibbles and/or canned food. I don't like to cook anymore (after 40 some odd years) so I'm not cooking for the dog. I think if I were more confident and had a good source I'd go raw. But I'm not. So I stick with kibble the is not high in lentils, add fish treats now & then, they all get a dollop of greek yogurt and now I am adding omega 3 fish oil.

Matt, I bet they love the sardines which is a small fish with out a big possibility of mercury that [email protected] is worried about. I do use fish oil capsules with small fish ingredients anchovy, mackerel,sardine and herring and it's purified to eliminate any trace of mercury.( Natures Bounty) There coats are wonderful and there getting the micro nutrients ( turine ect) that is needed . Lindar51 I do agree with you the cooking is very time consuming and tiring. One day I too will stop I keep telling myself.
Enough of my rambling.

Be Well

Yeah, he loves it. I found a brand online that puts absolutely nothing in the can except water. I switch it up occasional with mackerel. Like you said, small fish that has almost no mercury and a ton of other benefits. I also think thats why most fish kibble is catfish, perch, trout, etc. all fish with almost no mercury.
