|I actually wouldn't do it: Feeding Raw Fish can result in a thiamine (B1 vitamin) deficiency leading to loss of appetite, seizures, and in
severe cases, death. Raw fish contains an enzyme called thiaminase, which can destroy vitamin B1. This enzyme can be destroyed by cooking the food. I'm sure that's in larger quantities and I suppose in small quantities it would be "maybe" okay but considering everything that's polluting our waters right now, oil in the gulf, another oil spill in Michigan, etc. etc. can you be sure where the fish came from and how much mercury, oil, etc. is in it? If it were me, I'd stick with meat.
