The Benefits of Freeze-Dried Organs for Pets
Even if the thought of eating organ meat makes you turn up your nose, your pet on the other hand, will adore these tasty and nutritionally beneficial foods. Incorporating freeze-dried organs into your pet’s diet may be one of the best decisions you make regarding their health.
Believe it or not, organs are actually a lot richer in nutrients than muscle meat. For instance, liver is high in protein, vitamin A, and fat. It is also a good source of vitamin B, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, zinc, copper, and of course, iron. While it may not sound like a tasty snack to you, your pet will chow down liver and the health benefits in itself will be the true reward.
Freeze-dried hearts provide a leaner source of protein. They contain iron, fatty acids, and vitamin A. They are also a good source of taurine which is great for your pet’s heart.
Too Much of a Good Thing?
Like all foods or treats, there is a point where healthy foods can be overfed. Just like taking a pill form vitamin, there is a guideline as to how many you should take. If you were to overload on beta-carotene for instance, you’ll turn orange! The same concept applies to your pet.
To avoid giving your pet too much, we suggest feeding organ meats between 2-3 times a week. You should speak to your veterinarian to determine a specific feeding schedule of organs for your pet.
