Liver and garlic are not toxic to dogs.
In fact liver is necessary .
The problem , as for garlic, is amounts or volume.

Why Organ Meat Is Important For The Raw Fed Dog - Dogs Naturally Magazine

from that article "
Liver also contains one of the best, most usable sources for the body, of iron. Iron is necessary for many functions in the body including formation of hemoglobin, brain development and function, regulation of body temperature, muscle activity and catecholamine metabolism, to name just a few. A lack of iron will have a direct effect on the immune system; it diminishes the number of T- cells and the production of antibodies.
Iron is essential for oxygen to the blood cells. The primary function of iron is oxygen transport and cell respiration. For an anemic person, fatigue is one of the most noticeable symptoms. The iron in liver is one of most easily absorbable and usable sources of iron."

Carmen,

That is what I always heard also, which is why I was wondering why they listed it as a poison for dogs.

I've fed raw eggs for a gazillion years. Never had a problem. I suppose if you fed your dog a bunch of raw eggs at one time, you'd have a problem.

yes , same experience with the raw eggs, no problem

liver has to do with giving large amounts over a long period of time.

Animal based Vitamin A is accumulated and stored in the liver .
The dog would need to eat a lot of liver or get COD LIVER oil which is often erroneously given as a source for FISH oil.
It is not the same -- fish oil comes from the pressing of oily fish such as herring .
Animal sourced Vitamin A fat soluble , stored for future use.

Water soluble vitamin A converted from carotenoids , alpha and beta carotene , found in carrots, red palm oil, sweet potatoes etc is eliminated -- not stored .

From the sources I found small amounts of liver are okay. However, liver contains quite a bit of Vitamin A, which can adversely affect your pup’s muscles and bones.

Thanks,
Rachel

Several sources I found online state that there are two problems with giving your dog raw eggs. One is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli. The second is that an enzyme in raw eggs interferes with the absorption of a particular B vitamin.

However, not all the sources agree with one another. So I definitely recommend discussing the list with your vet.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Rachel

Garlic was a common item listed among many sources including many veterinarians I spoke to as being dangerous for dogs. The problem with garlic is the damaging affects take 3 - 5 days to show up after it has been ingested so the poisoning happens slowly over time.

Garlic damages the red blood cells causing them to break down and in severe cases may require a blood transfusion to save the dogs life. The amount ingested can definitely play a factor, based on the size of the dog so I always recommend discussing everything on the list with your veterinarian, and get their opinion.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Rachel
