Feed trout?

I caught some trout and was wondering if it is okay to feed this to my 1 year old gsd? The fish are gutted and heads cut off and there are no spikey fins

I put them in the freezer for 2 weeks to kill any bad stuff and I’ll feed them as a treat or meal replacement. Anything wrong with this?

Yes, go ahead.
I used to feed trout to one of my previous dogs, even with the head and guts.

I'd freeze for at least three weeks to kill off parasites. I would also double check for an advisories for the body of water you got the fish from. You should be able to go to the DEC website for your state and check and see if the fish are rated as safe to eat. For me if fish are not rated as safe to eat by women and children I do not feed to my dog.

So long as you didn't catch it in North California, Oregon, Washington, Western Canada, Alaska it should be fine.

Salmonella is why...though it's pretty easy to treat and your dog usually can only get it once.

I thought you guys were going to say Fukushima.

I didn't know you only get Salmonella once. I am going to have to do some reading on that!

Salmonella is only in the PNW?

Thanks for the info! I learn something new every day.

I said usually because there have been repeat cases, but they're rare! I used to work at a salmon hatchery in the PNW, and everyone who worked there brought their dog to work with them. All of the dogs got Salmonella, or salmon poisoning, but none that I knew personally ever got it again...

Salmonella is present in nearly all fish in the PNW, but it gets spread around by seagulls who've eaten the fish too, so it can and does occur outside the PNW. Just not frequently.

Salmon poisoning. Wild Trout carry can carry it, as well.
