    Default DRIED Anchovies!

    Hello! I am cleaning out my frig and found couple of boxes of dried anchovies. They're about 1 to 2 inches big and was quite expensive when I bought them a year ago (imported from korea). My question is, Is it ok to feed it to my 14week lab? Any recipes you guys might have? I could ground them up and maybe use them to make treats but I dont know... Anyone???

    I just gave Max (my labie) one big one and he nom nom nom-ed it up quite nicely. But I think it's quite salty... he drank water right after lol.

    What does the label say as to what is in it?

    If it was salted highly I would skip them.

    what does your dog normally eat? kibble? raw? I wouldn't feed too many at a time or you might find splatters on your floor and wall, things like that could be pretty rich and cause digestive upset if given in large quantities.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Asian dried anchovies usually are salted? At least the ones I use

    Pretty sure it's salted because I can actually taste the salt through my nose! I'm probably going to ground some up and bake some dog biscuits with it. Hmm.. I'll post pictures if I do! lol

    That's way too much sodium! Either toss them or eat them yourself.....WAY too much for your dog!!!!

    Ack really? I use them as treats for my dogs, it doesn't say salt on the label but they do smell salty, I don't give them a lot though maybe two fish each per day....

    I just used a handful to make treats with liver and he loves it. I threw the rest of them away because no one in the family likes fish stock or anything anchovy related lol. I remembered why I bought it in the first place! It was actually a raffle prize that I won by buying 50 tickets @ $1 each lol a donation sorta thing for elderly people i think... O WELLS! lol Thanks for your inputs!
