Organ meats? Gross, right? Well, even though they may seem gross to most of us, organ meats are an extremely important component of a carnivore’s diet. They contain an array of important trace minerals, vitamins and amino acids that are essential for helping your pet stay healthy and vital.
Dogs: Approximately 10% of the dog’s diet should consist of organ meat.
Cats: Cats require 15-20% of the total diet to consist of organ meat, mainly liver and heart. Heart meat is a great source of taurine for cats and is essential to them since they cannot synthesize it from precursor substances.
Menu items from 3P Naturals include: Heart & liver from beef, buffalo, lamb, chicken, turkey, duck and more
NUTRIENTS FOUND IN LIVER AND HEART
Just by adding organ meats to the diet, you will be providing the following important nutrients.
An issue that pops up this time of year is fleas! Many of us have chosen to feed raw because we don't want to add to the environmental stresses that today's domestic pets are exposed to. Most of us would rather avoid using chemicals to get rid of fleas if we can. Healthy skin is a major factor in keeping fleas at bay. A correctly fed raw diet is a great start to flea prevention along with nutritional supplementation and a natural flea spray that contains essential oils that deter pests*. If your pet does have fleas, you will need to treat your pet and your house too. If the flea infestation is bad enough, you may have to go the chemical route but working towards prevention is key! A natural solution for your house other than chemical flea powders is to use diatomaceous earth in all corners, furniture and on any carpet you may have. Ask your natural pet food store if they carry this product. These options might not always solve a flea issue but they are a great way to prevent flea problems from arising.

Did you know that Kai is a Desi dog? That means he is from the streets of India and travelled thousands of miles on a plane to come to Canada and live with 3P co-owners Debbie and Paul Benson. What a lucky boy! Here is his story from the rescue agency that brought him to Canada:
Kai was born on Dec 3rd, 2012. The litter had 6 boys and 2 girls. They were born in a park in a residential area . For the first 3 weeks, they lived safely in a little puppy pen made for them. When they started to move about at 3-4 weeks, there were many complaints as they were running all over the park and getting in the way of walkers and joggers. I had to relocate them to the corner of a road, and create an enclosure so that they would not run out onto the road. In a couple of weeks they outgrew this enclosure, and had to be moved out into a small room, where they were fed and cared for but had a sorry life as they did not have much space. Only after a foster home was found for them did they start to enjoy life.
