Does anybody use this stuff for your cats or dogs? I bought some because my cat is crazy for fish. I thought this would be great for EFA for him. It's Alaskan, so I am curious the mercury content in salmon?

Zen- Go to http://gotmercury.org/. You can put in your[or your pets] weight & the type of fish. It will calculate the mercury content for you.

Gee... thanks for that link, Lesleik!  I have drastically cut down the amount of tuna I give to the cats... one cat adores tuna and I give him Solid Gold Blended Tuna maybe once or twice a month.  I have cut down on seafood stuff I give to the cats ever since I found out that feeding a lot of depletes the cat's body of Vit. E over time.  The depletion of Vit E leads to a painful condition called steatitis where the nerve endings of the cat become super-sensitive.  This in turn leads to feline hyperesthesia (rolling skin syndrome).

i have 3 different fish charts. one is for mercury/etc and is a basic quickie for shopping, another is the Monterey Bay Aquarium's, which really breaks it down by fish/sub fish and a third which breaks it down to often you can eat it. I feed my cats/dog salmon from alaska, wild caught river. either canned or fresh poached. just do it in moderation  Smiley i can get what's called soup fish, which is basically salmon trim from making salmon steaks. i poach that in a bit of homemade chicken broth. the canned i used is crown prince wild caught from alaska. nothing added. you can buy it by the case on amazon. i also bought another brand recently, same specs of amazon Smiley my pets also get my leftover salmon.

you can also get grizzly salmon oil to add to their food. wild caught alaskan. my cats and dog go for it just fine whether off my finger or a squirt on their food.

Awesome, thank so much Leslie! I used it and the dose is low, so it's no problem feeding him that. It's Alaskan too, so the mercury has to be close to non-existent. I am trying to mix a tablespoon or two of this with chicken giblets, for his half-raw feeding meal.

Thank you Straybaby, I will try to do it in moderation. Does the Alaskan Salmon deplete the Vitamin E like tuna does then?
