Tuna fish and salmon okay?

So i have a lot of canned tuna fish and canned salmon that was bought in bulk and a lot is left.

I was wondering is it okay to mix this in with some of his kibbles?

I don't see why not. I mix in pretty much everything but the kitchen sink as a reward for good behavior. Small doses would be my only advice to see how the variation in diet treat the pups tummy on potty runs.

The Salmon should be fine but I would not go with the tuna. Once a week with the tuna is fine but feeding it more often than that and for a prolonged period of time could cause some major issues since Tuna contains Thiaminase.

I would be afraid of mercury poisoning if you over do it.

FDA scientists responsible for seafood safety are also concerned about the safety of the eating these types of fish, but they agree that the fish are safe, provided they are eaten infrequently (no more than once a week) as part of a balanced diet.

Also, the fish should only be fed if it is the type in springwater, it should not be in oil or any different flavours

All of mine love salmon cooked with scrambled eggs and cheese or mixed in yogurt or cottage cheese. I toss kibbles into all of the above for their supper a couple of times a week. Sardines are also a fav along with chicken and beef or pork.. lol
