DOGS LOVE LIVER

Most people make an “ewww” face when you bring up the topic of eating liver. Many of us did not grow up eating this strange but powerfully nutritious food.

Luckily, dogs don’t have the same reaction. Liver is an instant hit!

What’s so great about liver? For starters, it contains 10 to 100 times the nutrients of muscle meat. It has a large amount of vitamin A, several B vitamins, iron, trace minerals, and is a great source of protein.

Grass-fed and pasture-raised animals produce liver with a better nutrient profile, but that doesn’t mean you should skip using liver if you can’t find grass-fed products.

Although the liver does clean toxins from the body, it is not a storage organ for those toxins. If all you can get is conventionally-produced liver, it still has great nutritional benefits.

Liver is readily available in most grocery stores. Look for plastic containers of chicken livers in the meat department. Beef liver is often found in the freezer section.

If you are at a butcher shop or farmer’s market, just ask if they have any liver for sale. Sometimes they don’t display it, but have it available on request.

You can serve liver lightly cooked or raw if you have a trusted source and your dog is accustomed to raw foods.

All of our liver dog treats are freeze dried for optimal freshness. Check out our chicken livers, beef livers, and lamb livers!
