Can dogs have fish sticks?

by Rachelon April 23, 2015

I have been debating for the past week about what I should do with my 2 year old pit bull who can eat bones and fish (and I know I don't have to post this but I am sure it will come in handy!). My vet said he can have fish as long as there is no problem with him swallowing the bones (which I was fine with and I didn't know I could do that). She said he has no problem eating bones and that he was just going for the flavor. Now I am wondering if it is okay to give him fish as well. I know a lot of pit bull owners have their dogs on fish sticks but the only problem I can think of is that fish is not as good for their digestion as a bone is.

Should I do it?

If you want to do it...go for it. However, please consult your vet before doing so because it may not be beneficial to your dog.

I want to say that fish is definitely one of the best things for your dog, but the bone could cause problems as well if it is too big or too large. If you are not going to feed him bones, he may have a hard time digesting them, because the digestion system is not as efficient at digesting these bones as it is at digesting the protein from other sources.

That being said, there are plenty of things that can be used in place of bones. Some of those options include boiled chicken or turkey gizzards, cooked hamburger meat, or raw ground beef. All of these things can be used in the same way as a bone, and your dog will not notice the difference.

However, I agree that there are better options for dogs, and you should talk to your vet about the best food for your dog. I do think that a good, natural, healthy diet is very important.

I'd do it. If it's that hard for him to digest bones he won't be able to digest fish either, so it's not like he won't have the protein. Fish should be one of the first things a dog eats anyway, but if you are not going to feed bones and you know you need to, I'd rather you feed it than something else.

You can give him fish just like you would give him meat.

I also have a dog that can eat fish bones as long as they are not too large, and he is a picky eater and sometimes just gets a hankering for a bone. He likes them cold and is a little picky about the shape and size of the bone, but he loves a hot bone.

When I was growing up my mother said, "A good fish head is a treat you don't get every day."

Fish are a good source of protein and omega-3. Bones are just something he has a hard time digesting, so you might try giving him a little bit of meat at once, and a bone, and see what he does with that. It would have to be really small bones though, like a half an inch or smaller, if he is going to be getting any meat at all.

My vet said that fish is healthy for dogs, but he does have a problem eating bones, which is understandable since he is a picky eater and bones are hard to chew. So he is on a bland diet (which is what I have been feeding him) with no bones, as well as a very limited number of raw bones (like 2 bones at the most). He is doing just fine, and I think it is because he likes the fish and the chicken wings I am feeding him, and he can eat as much as he likes, as long as it's healthy. So he does eat chicken and fish a lot, but he has not eaten meat (like ground beef) in ages.

I have a friend whose dog gets her into trouble when she doesn't watch her!

I would definitely go for it, but it is always a risk with dogs. I have a very picky eater of a dog and I had a good friend whose dog ate a bone that was too big. He couldnt digest it. He had to take the dog to the vet and the vet said they had to put the dog on a special diet to get over it and he was really bad off for a couple of months. It wasnt fun for him or for the family.

There is a big difference between eating a bone and feeding him fish. Bones contain calcium and phosphorus which are vital for the bones to be strong, whereas fish are full of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids which are good for his immune system.

You can give your dog fish just like you would meat. Just use fresh, raw, whole fish. You can cook them for him or freeze them. The same rules apply for giving him bones and meat.

The vet says it is not harmful, and she has been eating fish for years. It just doesn't sound like a good idea to me, but I am just saying that you don't have to feed it if you don't want to.
