Default Scallop Roe/Coral anyone?

Hello Hello

Ok so I am about to enter seriously spoilt pooch territory! I picked up the most gorgeous, fresh and huge scallops for special friday night dinner and our recipe calls for the roe/coral to be removed, we usually eat them but for once I will diligently follow the recipe. From my understanding the roe/coral is the reproductive organs?

I was wondering if they will do Basil any harm, he is emerging as quite the food hound, loves his organs and goes crazy fro salmon oil. We've not had a single bout of diarrhoea and we went cold turkey on the kibble when we started. I am just getting to the end of introducing a new protein with him (Pork) and was thinking about tossing him some scallop roe as a treat. Any thoughts?

Google seems full of people whose kibble fed dogs got sick after they got hold of a scallop cooked in garlic - go figure!

Sorry I can't help. It may be too rich for him, if he is only 3 months? You might try a 1/4 teaspoon to see?

Yes that was my thought, plus technically it's organ so he'll only need a tiny amount. I think I am going to slice it up small and give him a tiny amount tonight, if he likes its then chuck the rest in the freezer and add a little into a meal occasionally for variety. Scallops are packed full of so many nutrients.

I was juts checking that there isn't a "never feed your dogs scallops" rule that I didn't know about

When we're on my parent's boat, they usually catch a lot of seafood. After much googling, I decided it would be safer to not feed Odie any seafood. Many dogs have allergies to seafood and the best answer I could find was to watch the dog for signs of allergic reaction and be ready with the appropriate allergy medication.

I did find a website saying that the orange part of the scallop gut can kill a dog in minutes. For me, the risk is not worth it.

Eek! Well he has had about 1/4 teaspoon of the orange part half and hour ago and is certainly alive and kicking! But we will keep a very close eye on him. He went crazy for it couldnt lick the bowl enough then danced for more.

I found a couple of raw feeding blogs who give whole scallops occasionally, one dog called pallet seems to be eating every fish under the sea on a regular basis!

I think I found the same website just now that says it can kill a dog but no where else has said that. I am not discrediting it but surely if it were that toxic it would be more widely known? But then once upon a time it was usual to give grapes as a treat! Jeeze its done now and I hope I havent made a mistake :s

It's tough because there is so much conflicting information out there and regardless of the food, there will always be a handful of people saying, "I've been feeding X to buster for years and he's fine!". Also tough because dogs don't always show symptoms of damage.

I know that some seafood carries parasites and that it should be frozen for a specific time period before being fed to dogs raw and some people won't feed it raw at all, but I'm not sure about scallops. Hope you're able to find an answer so you know for next time!

Well just an update, Basil is 100% fine no change from his usual self, morning poop was nice and compact so it looks like he can tolerate it, won't be giving him any more for a while then will watch as closely next time to see if there is any reaction. Slowly does it
