I feed fish oil capsules with mackerel oil, not the fish. Be sure you feed wild caught, not farmed. If it's farmed it won't have the omega3 benefit, which is the whole point of feeding fish.

Sometimes ! if your dog was low sodium it is the most critical dietary consideration for dogs experiencing heart conditions such as congestive heart failure.  If the High sodium intake may cause your dog to have an increased thirst accompanied with higher intake of water. A veterinarian may restrict you from feeding your dog with high sodium content diet when your dog suffers from kidney disease, liver disease or a heart failure.

I use to feed Mackerel. But not canned. I got the fresh fish from an Asian market...wild caught. But the last time I fed it, they decided it wasn't their cuppa after all. lol. I steer clear of canned typically because of the high sodium. And feed sardine/anchovy oil and fresh sardines, though I've been out of those for some time. I need to go shopping. But I wonder if they'll turn their noses up at that like they did with the mackerel. Anyhow, my first choice would be fresh sardines. (wild caught)

One more issue with canned is the BPA in the lining. Both pet and human food cans have it, unfortunately. BPA is a chemical disruptor and can have negative long-term health consequences.
