Recently got to know about thiaminase in certain types of fish. Now I'm confused.

I feed my dog lots of salt water fish (mainly to keep the cost down, no salmon). About 50%. Everyday. They are fresh when I buy and I buy one week's stock at a time (about 9 pounds).I do rotate among about 10 varieties. Being in Sri Lanka have no way of getting their scientific names (or what they are called in English even) and to figure out whether they are carriers of thiaminase or not.

So how do I handle this thiaminase issue? Should I give thiamine (vitamin B1) as a supplement to be on the safe side? Will that lead to an overdose situation?
