Are they fresh or are they in oil, brine, juice?  I wouldn't risk it unless the fish is fresh personally.

They are in sun flower oil. I was going to mix them in with her kibble and i thought id check to see if anyone else feeds them to their dogs - not every day but just as a treat.

I was told that they are good for the fur and skin especially the sunflower oil.

I feed sardines 1x a week, in sunflower oil.  You can rinse off most of the oil too.  My pups love them

Same here!  Once a week or so, rinsed off, mixed with kibble.  Man, do they go CRAZY for them!   :yes:

I feed them, in sunflower oil, rinsed off about once a month. But my dogs get other fish a couple times a month too.

I have also given my dogs oysters- in very small amounts and they love those too. I think the smellier the food the more they like it ;)

I'm surprized the dog food gurus haven't found a way to flavor their foods with horse turds and road kill!   :laugh4:

The only sardines I can find at the grocery store near me are the canned ones in Spring Water.  Would these be OK to give once a week, or once ever couple of weeks?  I have no clue on how to find fresh sardines in Oklahoma.....LOL

How about the "fresh" (A.K.A. non-canned, non-frozen, in the meat section) salmon?  Should it be cooked first?  Or should it be raw?
