What Is Considered "Organ Meat"

What Is Considered "Organ Meat" in our dogs diet?
Where the confusion comes along is figuring out which organs from  animals constitutes as "Organ meat" concerning raw feeding, versus "Muscle meat".
Organs should comprise approximately 10% of your dogs total diet. 

  • Liver is on top of the list of the organ meats, as it is rich in potassium, copper, and Vitamin A as well as the B vitamins.  Vitamins D, K and E are also well represented.  Because of the high amount of Vitamin A, liver should be fed often but in small quantities.                                  

Beef and chicken liver are purchasable in most grocery stores.
  • Kidney is another Organ meat, which is rich in Vitamins D, K, A and E, iron and zinc, and spleen which offers much of the same.  

Chicken gizzards, chicken and beef hearts, beef kidney, and occasionally beef tongue do not constitute as organ meat.
