    My border terrier is on a good quality kibble diet but I feed her treats every now and then such as tinned sardines. I stuff them in her kongs. Are tinned sardines ok? I assumed they were...

    Yup, fab, I use the ones in tomato sauce. Great for the oil content. The ones in brine would need a thorough rinse first.

    Maisie loves sardines & usually gets a tin once a week

    She's not had any for absolutely ages tho' :( as she's been on a diet and they are (which I was surprised at) quite high in fat

    Must give her some as her (usually beautifully shiny) coat is looking a bit dull as she's been moulting for weeks

    My daughter suffers from ulcerative colitis and recommended sardines for Tango as she finds them very good for soothing her gut problems , in fact any oily fish is good apparently. Tango has them 2x weekly and is really well, her coat is beautiful ( for her ! ) and she ADORES them !!

    Ours have sardines/mackerel in oil or tomato sauce once or twice a week, they adore them and they are so good for them!

    Mine too, a tin of pilchards or sardines a week usually spread across 2 lunches. I usually rinse the tomato sauce off as she's not mad about it. Great way to give them something tasty and healthy. ..

    I think my two would leave home if they didn't get their sardines in oil weekly. I usually drop an egg in too, with a bit of crushed up shell. Perfect.
