Seafood is generally safe for your dog to eat.
There are lots of goodies within seafood, such as omega fatty acids.
But seafood should really be cooked before you think about giving it to your dog. There are lots of parasites that live within uncooked sea creatures, so your best defense is a good offense.
Keep in mind that your dog might be allergic to some seafood, so in order to make sure, give them a small amount to start. Instead of giving him a salmon fillet (what are you, made of money?), give him a bite-sized piece of fish.
Bear in mind that most fish have pesky bones that even the best fillets might contain.
As you might imagine, fish bones are not great for your dog to eat. They’re tiny, almost invisible, and sharp – the perfect storm of potential problems.
Some canned fish like tuna are also packed with sodium in order to preserve them, so it would be inadvisable to share canned fish with your pup.
Overall, it just takes some good common sense when it comes to feeding your dog seafood.
A little bit of fresh cod?
A little bit of breaded and fried cod with a little tartar sauce?
Yeah, probably not.
Your dog doesn’t want or need the extras!
Here is a look at some acceptable seafood to feed your dog.
