I will not risk Salmon Poisoning by feeding fresh PNW fish that are susceptible to infection.
Every vet we have gone to sees cases of Salmon Poisoning every year, always from dogs that have eaten salmon that have spawned.
Many of the dogs do not make it because the owners do not recognize the severity of the symptoms in time.

There is also Elokomin fluke fever which is caused by a different neorickettsial organism that can infect the same fluke.
It is milder and only kills about 10% of untreated dogs. It also can infect raccoons, ferrets and bears.
