Organ Meat
The Health Benefits of Liver

Organ meat such as liver and beef kidney can be a nutritious treat when added to your pet's diet.  And the health benefits of liver are so great, that you might want to add this food to your diet as well.

Nutrients such as B12 and iron are only a couple of the important nutrients found in organ meats.  And some people say that the meats from organs are much more nutritious than muscle meats.

That has been my experience especially when trying to get enough B12 into my diet.

Also, these types of meat are much more cost effective than buying a steak for example which has gotten almost too expensive to eat these days.

I know from experience that dogs seem to enjoy the health benefits of liver and beef kidney.  And I think they are both much more nutritious for your pets than feeding them dry dog food.
