FDA guidelines for freezing fish to kill parasites.
  • Freeze and store at -4F (-20C) or below for 7 days (total time); or
  • Freeze at -31F (-35C) or below until solid and store at -31F (-35C) or below for 15 hours; or
  • Freeze at -31F (-35C) or below until solid and store at -4F (-20C) or below for 24 hours.
Note: these conditions may not be suitable for freezing particularly large fish (e.g. thicker than six inches) (FDA, 2001).

HOBY We feed cooked Salmon to our dogs on a pretty regular bases. We also feed Hound and Gatos Salmon for the dogs when we don't have fresh Salmon.

Nigel Whoa, we fish down on the Columbia and bring home plenty to share with the pups, but have always grilled it first, didn't know about raw salmon from around here, good to know.

Kaimeju It is only the coastal Pacific Northwest where the snail that is the secondary host for the fluke that causes salmon poisoning lives. Inland lakes should be fine. But with any wild food I would feel uncomfortable feeding it fresh because there are other flukes and parasites besides the well known ones. If the fish weren't fully processed by the butcher yet I would also gut them. Sometimes they swallow things you wouldn't want your dog to eat.

SuperG This is good information since I feed my dog raw and just found a source on salmon....I guess I will cook/poach it just to be on the safe side.

Thanks,

doggiedad i give my dog poached salmon. we eat a variety of fish.
whenever we have fish we always buy our dog a fillet or
two. the fish is always cooked. if i give him canned fish
it's in water, no salt added.

JakodaCD OA I work at a fish market Yes it's the Pacific Northwest salmon that MUST be cooked.

However, if you've got whole salmons or salmon carcass, where ever it comes from, I always cook mine, or should I say 'poach" it.

If it's the WHOLE salmon, I gut it, filet it off, I boil down the carcass with the head, then when it's really mushy, throw it in the food processor, the filets I also poach down, and do the same thing, I KEEP the liquid, and freeze it up in portions..

I just don't like feeding salmon raw, and I don't like giving them fish bones uncooked/mushed down, tho I know some do
