Catfish, (not) the movie…

Raw fish filets are a cheap & easy protein source. Loaded in essential fatty acids. Good for skin & coat. Mine love it.

My book says to only feed it about 4 x / month to breeds not developed near the water, but doesn’t say why.


So feed it to your Portuguese Water Dog as often as you like, but a Pug should only get it once a week? Huh? Whatevs. 

Moderation & balance, y’all. Moderation & balance.

Catfish are plentiful in Alabama, and CHEAP! Salmon, however, is on the other end of the price spectrum….WAY at the other end. But if you’ve bought a filet for yourself, and you’re trimming off the excess, drop it in the dog bowl. Nom.

I buy filets. Although dogs can gnash their way through raw bones, fish bones are so fine, I err on the side of caution. 

Cut into bite size pieces & freeze in a single layer. Then load into single serving freezer bags along with some of your other frozen goodies. Pop it in the fridge a day ahead to thaw before serving. TA-DA!! Easy peasy.

For a 25lb dog:

1/4 -1/2 lb of raw fish, and

half cup of diced veggies.

Side Note: I feed fruit & yogurt for breakfast, and meat with veggies for dinner. But I don’t think it matters. 

Adjust up or down according to the size of your dog.

Moderation, balance & all that noise.

pugs & kisses!
