Sardines - whole? cooked? gutted? boned?

Post by blueboysgirl » 11 Jan 2011, 13:14

I've just come back from Tesco with the weekly shop and I picked up a couple of sardines in the reduced section. They were 21p for the pair!!!! :D

I thought "Ooh, Bruno'd love a treat for a change for lunch"

Now I've got them unwrapped and gone into dumb weakling mode.

HELP??????
How do I do this???? :oops: :oops: :oops:
Gut them? Cook them? Bone them? Just throw them down for him? De-head them?

Haha you sound just like me!

I'll never forget something my vet said to me when he encouraged me to feed raw

'does a wild dog have a nutritionist walking alongside them or do they just eat?'

I guess on his theory you would just throw them down!!!

If your dog doesn't like them raw you could heat them in boiling water which keeps the fishy smells in the house to a minimum.

I'd say raw he'd eat them raw in the wild but I'd probably chop head off so it wasn't watching me lol

Thanks all!! :D

Went for raw, I cut them up into 1 inch chunks to mix with a bit of kibble.

He loved them, all but the heads and tails. He "fished" them out and left them by his bowl on the kitchen floor?!!?? :shock:

Wasn't a waste of 21p after all :lol:

:lol: :lol: Lovely snack! Can anyone else smell fish now they've read this? :lol: :lol:

I asked a similar question when I had some raw sprats, and Katherine said that they can carry worms in their gut so I might want to gut them, but these had been frozen so that would have sorted out the worms. Daisy eats them raw, but Poppy likes them chopped roughly, and put in the microwave on high for 30 secs!

Do dogs not have problems with fish bones? I thought they could only eat tinned fish bones as they are then soft?
I know they can eat raw chicken bones but not cooked.
