So, looks like Tia will have to have her food partially cooked for a while as she is still having tummy issues. I'm making talapia for the girls tonight. I'm going to cut the head & tail off & they can play with that while it cooks, but do I need to debone the fish once its cooked?

I'm triple- superior MAD- now!

I would definitely get all the bones out! Even if the dogs could digest them they fall out of the cooked fish so aren't cushioned by the meat the way they are when fed raw.

I took them out since I wasn't sure. They loved the raw heads though. GROSS!!!


I want to play!

I agree cooked fish bones are not good.. Saya done fine with raw fish so far..

Caned mackerel and calmon can have bones in it, but the caning process makes the bone soft enough I can squish it with my fingers.. So I don't worry with caned fish..

You could always simmer it for an hour or so until the bones are mush. Or pressure cook it.. Or even stick it in a slow cooker for the day so you don't have to worry about bones. It'll all be mush
