Raw Dog Food Organs - Feed as Meat or Organ

I belong to several groups where raw dog food is the main topic. One of the questions I see all the time is whether a certain organ should be fed as meat or as an organ. Some organs are made up of muscle and connective tissue, such as the heart and the lungs. Others are considered secreting organs, and it is these organs that should be considered organs when following the 80% meat, 10% bone, and 10% organs recipe for raw feeding (prey model).

Since this is a common question, I created an infographic to help you determine which way to feed the various organs in your dog’s raw food diet. As they say, a picture may be worth 1000 words, so let’s test that. If you find this graphic useful, I also created a pdf file that you can download here (opens in a new window).

I sometimes look into the face of my dog Stan and see a wistful sadness and existential angst, when all he is actually doing is slowly scanning the ceiling for flies.
