Can You Give Cats Dried Fish?
Fish are not a part of cats' natural diet. Contrary to popular belief, except for a few wild cat species, cats do not eat fish in the wild. However, dried fish contains a high amount of protein, which is considered safe and even healthy for cats. Moreover, dried fish provide healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids, DHA, iodine, zinc, copper, calcium, and selenium. These ingredients help boost the immunity of your cat and also help prevent heart disease. The key is to feed fish to the cat in moderation, not to get them addicted to fish. Cats need meat-derived high-quality protein, which comes from birds or animals and not fish. Therefore, stick to feeding fish as a treat and not part of the main diet for your cat.
