I cant remember who but someone on this board recommended plain tuna fish as a good thing to add to kibble as it does not effect the protein balance of the kibble.MANY THANKS for the advice Alfie has transformed from such a fussy eater to eating all his dinner as soon as I put it on the floor. As so many things start off his scratching Tuna has been great, 2 weeks and no bad side effects. I just have to put a very small amount on top of his kibble. (Harvey seems to love it as well but then there is nothing he does not like to eat).

Is tuna safe to give every day? I know it has higher levels of environmental contaminants (read: mercury) and for humans should only be eaten occasionally.

Someone else will have to answer that one, I don't know but I was told not give tuna if it's in brine, that's too much salt, even if you drain it. You can get it in tins of fresh water.

In the US, the FDA has had tuna warnings for several years now:

Maybe feeding a small amount once a week would be ok, but it may not be safe for puppies.
