    If I'm feeding my dog a fish-based dry food, would it be overdoing it if I also give some fresh cooked fish? My dog is on a rotation diet and gets home-cooked food in addition to Addiction Salmon Bleu dry food. Thanks!

    My dogs also get a fish based Food and I sometimes give them cooked fish.

    I wouldnt do it everyday but as an occasional treat I dont see the problem.

    I would be careful giving your dog too much fish. The dioxins in fish are extremly high. Do you know is the fish used in the dry food wild or farm raised. If I were giving a fish based food I would give my dog chicken as a supplement and i would give it raw.

    Thanks! I initially thought lots of fish, especially salmon, was good cos of the benefits of omega and all that. Its definitely farm-raised. My dog gets mostly beef in addition to fish, so I think I'll cut adjust to give less cooked fish. I'v read about raw so many times but I'm not really ready to switch to a raw diet completely. I've heard raw chicken is a good way to start so I might start doing that soon! I know pacific salmon can contain lethal mercury levels and the fish I buy is definitely not from there so I'm pretty safe.
