my SIL takes slivers off a frozen lamb liver for her min pin/ chi.....
i only do that because my kids don't like organs, so i give them daily like treats after a walk on the treadmill or outside.
I dont want to hijack this thread but I'm a bit confused. According to calculations.. Raj...who weighs 65 lbs gets about 1.3 lbs a day should only get .4 organ meat/4 days and Willow who gets about 1 lb per day should get only .3/ 4 days does that sound about right?
30.8 oz = 10 per cent for organs
15.4 oz for liver
15.4 oz for other organs
i think that's right. and that is per week....
the other dog:
eats 16 ounces x 7 days = 112 ounces per week
11.2 ounces of organ
5.6 oz of liver
5.6 ounces of another organ.
so you could easily divvy this up during the week....
feel free to correct me. i excelled in other subjects, but not math.
my dog gets 6 oz per day x 7 =42 ounces per week
so ten per cent of that is
4.2 ounces per week
2.2 for liver
2.2 for other
so they get some every day, because it's so small BUT i started out giving them dime sized pieces until i built up to what they get.
How did you get the 44 oz? I was going by 1 lb 3 oz so Raj gets 19 oz/day I think oso at least, unless I'm getting my numbers from the wrong place?
if you want to use daily numbers, that's fine. i was using weekly numbers....so that i know how much to give on a seven day cycle. mine are small, so they get their organs every day as a treat for taking a walk...
if he is eating 19 oz per day, then ten percent of that is 1.9 oz per day....
five per cent of that is .95 oz, so
he would get
.9 give or take oz of liver
.9 give or take oz of some other organ, such as kidney, spleen, pancreas, adrenals, any secreting organ, brain, and i can't think of the other ones today, because i have no brain cells left after going to costco on friday the thirteenth. :)
ok. and you're right. i'm wrong in my upper numbers.
if he is getting 19 oz per day, that's 133 oz per week. my bad.
then you take ten per cent of that, which is 13.3 oz, divide it into two, five percent liver and five percent something else, and that's your ten percent per week number...
that would be the per week amount of ounces. sorry for the confusion...where's natalie when i need her LOL
it's the one thing i don't measure. i just almost thaw liver or whatever and cut them into half inch cubes.....
i think i'm right. if not, let me know and i can shoot myself :) or drink.

This is how I'm getting my numbers..Organs should take up about 1.5 meals a week. so if one meal is 9 oz thats about 13 oz per week.
Wait, so I'm now getting 3.25 LOL per every 4 days so it would be 6.5 ounces of liver and 6.5 ounces of kidney or other offal
Oh geez lol I have no idea what I'm talking about and I completely hijacked her thread....sorry!!
