    As long as your dogs can handle it with no tummy problems then I see no problem with it at all. Lucky has had fish for about 4 days in a row before with no issues :)

    The fin scores are 1001: 996


    Besides cross breeding always produces healthy fish :)

    all i would say is that you need to get the mongrel :lol: to gut the fish. i have fed raw whole oily fish with guts and without guts. i found that fish with the guts seemed to cause a bowl irritation which makes sense because it will contain the fish faecal matter, the grain and fish food - not so good for dog digestion. when i fed raw whole gutted fish (but heads, fins and tails attached) there was no bowl irritation.

    fish is great for dogs, you have a variety which you will feed which is good. fish should not be the main source of meat for raw fed dogs for prolonged periods of time.

    Thanks, Yeah they normally have whole fish on a friday anyway.

    Its purely for 6 days while on holiday as it was difficult to source lots of raw stuff on the Isle of Man last time so ended up buying Skinners, been on raw for 2 years now.
