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! YUCK! Many pet parents 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. There are also effective aromatherapy sprays that can also be used to help deter fleas on a daily basis when your pet goes outside where they could pick up a flea. These options might not always solve a flea issue but they are a great way to prevent flea problems from arising. A great natural option can be found online from Equus Soap Co. If you're worried about a more serious problem like a flea infestation, it's time to talk to your veterinarian.
Good luck fighting those little fleas this spring!
