I use liver,spleen and kidney. I also use green tripe, beef heart, lung, trachea, beef tongue but I do not believe these items constitute organ meat.
As far as liver and some dog's lack of interest in eating it...I have seen the same with my pooch, she will turn her nose up at it...if it is given to her separately. However, when I blend it into my ground up concoction it's never a problem. I have also been told that dessicated liver is something dogs really enjoy...many use it as a premium high value treat. I have never dehydrated liver BUT if it smells up the house like chicken does in my food dehydrator, I'd put the dehydrator outside. I put a bunch of chicken breast strips in my food dehydrator for training treats and it stunk...and the final product smelled disgusting as well. I would have never guessed chicken would smell so "fowl" when drying it.
