My Dog Loves Trout!

Postby RedNoseSandyRose » Thu Jun 22, 2006 4:28 pm

I've made the switch over to Merrick Food aand now we're trying out the differen wet food mixed in with the dry.
Sandy loves, loves, loves the Campfire Trout Feast flavor! Do you think it's bad to feed her 2 cans a week?
Does Trout have high levels of any metals like mercury in it?
Thanks in advance!

Trout is one of the best. I just read an article about feeding fish to dogs. They had a chart listing which types of fish are high in mercury.

At my work we have some mahi mahi, i have been wanting to take it home but was wondering if it would hurt my dog. Its in the lower mercury chart, is that bad for dogs?

Yes, trout is one of the safe fishes.

I wish my picky eater liked fish! He turns his nose up at it.

I'm not so sure that all trout are safe. Some (*out sest) suffer from whirling disease that is caused by a parasite that may or may not be harmful to whatever eats the infected fish. I've never did the research to find out since I'm here in the east as well.

Since you are on the east coast though you have nothing to worry about. My dogs happen to love trout as well
