Dogs shouldn’t be fed salmon bones. These fish bones are sharp and small. There could be a risk of the salmon bone getting lodged in the dog’s digestive tract including the mouth, esophagus, and stomach. Think of the last time you had a fish bone stuck in your throat and how annoying it was to take out.

While the risk might be small, salmon bones may get stuck in the dog’s digestive tract and increase the risk of internal injury or internal bleeding. Raw fish bones tend to be more dangerous in this respect.

Did your dog eat some salmon bones? Is he starting to act up (e.g. throw up or struggle to poop)? In such cases, we strongly recommend taking your dog to the vet for diagnosis.

Cooked salmon bones may only pose a health risk if the salmon was cooked with ingredients that are toxic to dogs (e.g. garlic and onion).
