Liver has a unique taste, which some people love and others hate.

  • Pan-fried: Liver works well when pan-fried with onions.
  • Spaghetti Bolognese: Liver can be chopped or minced and then mixed with regular ground beef.
  • Burgers: As with Bolognese, chop or mince the liver and mix it with ground beef to make seriously nutritious burgers.
  • Add plenty of seasoning: Adding lots of spices and strong flavors can help disguise its taste.
  • Soak the liver in milk or lemon juice before cooking: This will reduce its strong flavor.

Is Liver Safe For Dogs & Cats To Eat?

You might wonder if liver’s really safe for your dog.  Some people worry about the liver’s job in the body. 

One important role the liver has is filtering toxins out of the body.

So you might think those toxins can harm your dog. 

Even though the liver cleanses toxins from the body … 

… it doesn’t store those toxins. 

In fact … muscle meats are typically higher in unwanted toxins than liver.

So liver won’t poison your dog

There’s another advantage to feeding liver … and that’s to support the liver itself. 

And Cats?

Unlike dogs and other animals, a cat is unable to produce taurine, a chemical that is important in the metabolism of fats. This means that a cat needs to be given a proper taurine intake in order to fulfill its taurine requirements. The good part is that beef is an excellent provider of taurine. Feeding your cat beef liver will not only make it healthy and strong, but will also take care of its taurine requirements.

These packs are normally around 2 - 3 lbs. The cattle we process are from animals under 30 months of age, so this liver will be stronger than calf liver but it is NOT a old animal
