Is Fish Safe for Our Pets?

 
If you feed Cats & Dogs fish – Salmon,Tuna or Mackerel or Sardines – Be Aware – wild sources are contaminated with drugs and other pollutants.
There are ways to mitigate some of the effects. Use up to a teasp. of Sunflower Lecithin in every fish meal to help remove damaging chemicals from the body. Icelandic Kelp, Organic Apple Pectin and Bentonite Clay is also helpful.
Remember, most processed products use ‘meal’ from many sources of fish & fowl.
Consumers have no control over how this meal is formulated or verified for safety.
By feeding your animals Real Food, you can monitor their reactions better and judge what effects each type of food is having on your pet.
Never used Farmed Fish like Tilapia.
“Research from the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future revealed the gory details of disease-ridden fish farms in Asia, where pig and chicken feces serve as a cheaper alternative to standard fish food. While the FDA vehemently denied any of these goings-on, the Johns Hopkins investigation revealed only 2 percent of imported seafood to the United States is actually tested for contamination. Experts worry that the large amounts of antibiotics given to the fish to ward off infections may give rise to antibiotic-resistant strains of salmonella.” via Eat This Not That Newsletter
This is a very worrisome result of our civilzation with no solution in sight.
