Canned Salmon

Is it safe to use canned salmon as a treat for our dogs? I could even freeze some. Their dog food contained salmon so I wondered if wild Alaskan canned salmon would be okay.

I could even dehydrate the salmon. Why do I feel like I'm having a one-way conversation?

check out the salt content ,would be the only thing I would worry about. As a treat once in a while might be OK but not on a regular basis.

Be sure there are no small bones, watch how it affects their calorie intake, and as mentioned keep an eye on sodium. Other than that, salmon can be a very healthy treat.

I mix it in dry food instead of canned dog food once in awhile. They love it!

Yes, you can but drain and rinse. Salmon is included in my dog's diet on a daily basis. Canned was listed as okay. I use the frozen salmon instead because it ends up being less expensive than the cans. I buy a 16 ounce package, usually has 4 good sized pieces of salmon for about $5.00 whereas the cans were something like $2.50 each. The frozen salmon, once baked, breaks up more easily into chunk size.

I have 2 cans of salmon for a "just in case". I just checked the sodium on both the canned and frozen. Canned 220 mg, frozen 40 mg. Even draining and rinsing well, I am sure it won't reduce the sodium content all that much in the canned. The frozen is really a lot easier anyway. You can cook it all and freeze it, take out what you need...or have some for yourself.

I think I have salmon snobs. I haven't tried the canned, but I tried the frozen patties they sell at Trader Joe's. No Way! But given them fresh salmon, and they're all over it.
