liver

Emma and Elle both love love love liver, and could eat it everyday if I would allow it....How much should they get of liver, lets say in a week, or is it ok, for them to eat it a lot? right now we use it as a treat.

Re: liver

Liver is very rich. Too much and it will give them the runs. Feeding it raw I would limit it to an ounce or two every day or every other day.

Re: liver

Not only is liver very rich, but very high in copper and vitamin A, both of which can be overdosed.

I give my dogs between 2.5-3.5 ounces per week, split into several servings, as part of their raw diets.
