  1. That salmon one surprised me too. I assume canned salmon is OK. My vet actually recommended that.

  2. I think as long as it is cooked or processed it would be fine, as it was a parasite in salmon that caused the problem. And it is only a problem for dogs not people or cats.

    “Canids (dogs) are the only species susceptible to salmon poisoning. That’s why cats, raccoons and bears eat raw fish regularly with out consequence.”

  4. We see salmon poisoning here a lot, but there are tons of salmon fisherman! We just learned about xylitol on the blog we read before you! WOW!

  5. Great advice, listen up all ye woofies!

  6. We were surprised to find out, not too long ago, that avocado is not safe. It has something called persin in it which is no good for dogs or cats!
