I was told ( when I did my research ) that Liver should only be fed in teeny amounts, and no more than 2 x per week, because of the high vit a levels.

( just being nosey/ educating myself )

May be a good question to ask raw feeders as if the dogs were catching the equivalent of a rabbit every day they would eat about the same amount as I feed. Perhaps someone feeding raw prey model could help.

My meat mix is very rich so they only get a heaped Tbs per day (5 days on, 2 off): from my research , I feel this amount is safe
