Organ Meat – The atom bomb of nutrition for your furkid. Organ Meat is a double-edged sword, yes it brings a great bang for your buck nutritionally but also if you go over the individual threshold of nutrition you can get reactions that you don’t really want. So, in the main a raw diet consists of up to 5% organ meat and 5% liver overall. You could notice reactions if you tend to go over the 10 to 15% as the meat is packed full of nutrition and it could be an overload that the body needs to deal in its normal ways.
Heart is a muscle, but it’s like an organ in that it holds higher density of vitamins and minerals like an organ but is not part of your organ calculation. Has very concentrated source of CoQ10 for cell and heart function and high in collagen and elastin than regular muscle meat. Heart should be looked at as only a small percentage of the diet as part of your muscle meat, as the heart is a small part of the prey animal.
Raw talks about liver a little separate from the other organs (kidney, lung, pancreas etc) because it’s probably the most power condensed area of valuable vitamins and nutrition. When you look at overall feeding this little organ has one of highest levels of all the vitamins and minerals of the whole body plus some, so too much will get adverse reactions; we suggest, you move up to the percentage required rather than giving the right amount up front and just notice reactions.
