    Hi everyone,
    My question is about fish in homemade food. I know fish oils are really good for dogs but my question is, what all of the fish can you use? I know you gut them but can you use the head, tail, scales?
    I grind all my food down to mush and make my mixture so can I just throw the gutted fish in the grinder or do I need to take more out of it?

    Thank you.

    Bumping up your post. I’ve only been feeding raw whole sardines that are about 8 inches long and I just feed the whole thing. The pugs eat them whole or I’ll toss them in the grinder whole as well.

    It depends on where you live, as far as fish diseases that dogs can get, but as far as body parts go, since you are grinding, feed the whole fish. Brains and eyeballs are really good for your dog. The only thing I worry about is with whole fish that are spiny, but grinding fixes that issue.
