I’ve been feeding two canned sardines per day for quite some time. Today I read something on a homemade pet Facebook page that canned sardines are too salty they have BPA and I should use frozen sardines raw etc. . I just want to let people know that the BPA etc. . I’m not sure what I’ll do probably nothing. I can always switcht to wild caught salmon which is probably a bit more expensive
Simon continues to do well one year and two months post diagnosis.

That's great news Luke!!!!!!!!! About Simon...not the sardines!
I use to mix in some canned "wild" sardines into Happy Hannah's food sometimes.
Thanks for letting us know. You always have good information to share

Luke, you probably know this already but be sure to apply some skepticism when reading things about homemade pet food that are written by people who aren't vets.
I haven't heard about this issue with sardines, and even Dr. Dressler of the Dog Cancer Survival Guide doesn't mention it in his book when he suggests giving sardines and mackerel (we wrote about his suggestions in our Tripawds Nutrition blog post, "Three Dog Cancer Diet Tips from Vets."
Of course it does makes sense that anything that isn't in a can probably has less sodium and no BPA (which is found in can liners), so that is good advice overall.
And YAY SIMON!!!! That's so wonderful he's beating the odds! Thanks to all your hard work, no doubt!
