Liver Treats for Dogs
Dogs are known as omnivores. It means they can eat both plants and meat of other animals. Varieties of food give them different kinds of nutrition and contribute to their well-being. But we are so sure that they have a preference among those kinds of food.
Meat is the number one favorite meal of dogs of all time. Chicken, beef, pork, lamb – name it, they love it! Those animals have several parts that contain a certain amount of nutrients suitable for dogs. They can be made into different kinds of treats and delectable recipes.
One of which is the liver. The liver contains 10-100 times the amount of nutrients of muscle meat. The liver is rich in iron, folate, vitamin A, vitamin B, copper, zinc, and phosphorus.
It is also rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids are suitable for your fur-baby’s development – from cell level and up.
Experts consider it essential since the liver is a good protein source, especially during gestation and early development in puppies. Fatty acids also aid in growth, immunity, and skin and coat health. The liver is also a nutrient boost for dogs that have been injured or sick.
When choosing the best kind of food for our pet, it is best to know its origins.
Grass-fed or pasture-raised animals are a good choice. Chicken, beef, pork, or lamb are all good picks for your fur-ball.
Avoid liver from wild game or hunting such as deer or turkey because you cannot guarantee its quality.
Now that you know a lot about liver let’s dive into these yummy recipes specially crafted for your beloved dogs. It can be given as treats for training dogs, a birthday cake, or just a casual part of their meal.
I bet the next question that pops into your mind is how much you should give your dog this lovely treat?
As usual, we follow the ultimate rule of too much is dangerous. Everything must be given to them in moderation.
For large breed and adult dogs, you can give them 2.5 ounces of dried liver treats. Dogs of the medium size, at least an ounce is enough.
For small breed dogs and younger ones, you can feed them half of what you’d give to large breed dogs or at least 1.5 ounces per day.
Dried liver treats are generally safe to feed your dog at least once or twice a week.
