1000 Reasons To Feed Your Dog Liver

written by :Anastasia
At first glance, the idea of feeding Dog liver seems ridiculous because most of us don’t like liver no matter how healthy it is.  As for dogs, it’s not only the source of protein and plenty of vitamins, but also extremely tasty. Dogs will readily eat this organ meat and what matters for you is that it’s highly nutritious and easy to find at your local market.

Liver is well known to be one of the most concentrated sources of natural vitamin A, B, iron, zinc and trace minerals. Vitamin A supports eye health, and Vitamin B (particularly B1, B2, B3, B5, B12) can prevent anemia and help with nerve health and mental ability. Moreover, liver provides good quality protein and fatty acids, omega-3 and omega–6 type.

Beef liver has the utmost nutrition levels and very high in cooper, and chicken liver is high in iodine and selenium, which has a good effect on the functioning of the digestive tract. However, if you give your dog too much liver, it can lead to vitamin A intoxication. If you are feeding dog with the liver and canned food, be sure that it doesn’t contain liver, if the dog is already given cooked liver.  If you don’t want your pet to have muscle weakness, weight loss and deformed bones, especially on the elbows and spine, feeding with liver must be done in consideration.

How to feed liver to your dog
You can feed your dog liver once or twice a week for the pet to have good health and strong bones. Three or more servings of liver per week can lead to vitamin A intoxication and cause various diseases. If the dog’s weight is around 30 kilos, 200 – 300 grams of liver will be enough for each time of feeding. Liver can be served lightly cooked or raw. Cooked liver works well as a training treat and eating raw liver can lead to parasitic infections.
Liver has a wide range of important nutrition and should be at least 5% of the overall diet. Help your dog  to be healthy and add liver to his diet!
