HOW TO FEED ORGANS

When you first start to introduce organs to your dog, start off slowly, just a little bit.  Some dogs can be funny with the texture or may get an upset tummy.  You can give frozen bits of the organ to the dog if they are a bit funny with them and this is typically more accepted to fussy dogs.

 

You will not exceed 10% of organs and generally, you would do 5% Liver and then 5% another organ.  Chicken organs are high in vitamins and minerals however the Kidneys can be hard to source.

When you very first start raw feeding you may like to keep your meat and organs from the same animal until your dog gets used to its new diet.
