OK, thanks I will poach it. We have enough of it to last a very long time.

|jjk454ss||I'm not sure, I think I remember freezing doesn't kill whatever causes the poisoning. But I give the filets to the dogs raw, but frozen. They last at least a little longer this way too.|

|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.|

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.

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.

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
