I have 2 Sprollie bitches that I have recently switched from Wainwrights to Akela. When they were on Wainwrights I would give them a tin of sardines every Saturday morning instead.
Now that I have switched them to Akela - I'm wondering if a tin of sardines is actually beneficial to them or not. Don't get me wrong, as a treat, they love it - but not sure if health wise it's good/bad/indifferent for them.
The tinned sardines I usually buy are in sunflower oil, that i rinse off under the tap before mashing it up for them. My mother always fed our dogs a tin of fish once a week when I was growing up - claiming it was good for their coats. Google seems to return mixed advice on the health benefits/detrements of a tin a week for the hounds. So any advice from you knowledgeable lot would be much appreciated.
