Organ Meats are the superstars in a raw food diet.
Power packed and nutrient dense, organ meats are an essential part of the raw diet. Aim for 10% of the total diet to be organs and no less than 5% of that ratio should be liver. Organs contain vitamins such as vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin D, E and C and essential fatty acids. They also contain minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, manganese, phosphorus and selenium.
Feed organs such as heart, liver, kidney, lung, spleen, brain, pancreas - feeding from a variety of species offers a rich nutrient profile. These are all of course best fed raw and sourced from grass-fed free-range animals. Liver is quite rich so is best fed in small amounts over the week, not as a large quantity or your pet may develop loose stools. Most pets really enjoy organ meats although a few may be a little resistant, so chopping finely and blending in with the tripe can help. The addition of freeze dried or organ toppers are often taken quite readily.
