Yes they can! Liver is a great source of proteins and vitamins for your dog. Dogs can eat chicken, pork, beef, and lamb liver. Each one has different benefits for dogs so you may want to discuss this with your vet before adding liver to your dog’s diet.
Can my dog eat raw liver?
If your healthy adult dog eats a bit of raw liver, it shouldn’t be an issue, however you don’t want to feed them to much raw meat when they are not used to it. Not only can raw meats contain parasites, it can also cause digestive issues and tummy troubles. Cooking these meats helps to kill any harmful pathogens that may make your dog sick.
Should my dog eat oats?
Yes they can! Oats are not only high in fiber, but are rich in vitamins and nutrients that are great for your dog. You will want to make sure your oats are cooked versus raw. Raw oats are hard for your dog to digest. Also, if you want to feed your dog oatmeal, skip the milk. Since dogs are dairy sensitive, cooking your dog plain oatmeal with water will save them some of the stomach troubles that come from digesting milk.
