Now I know that organs (especially liver) are extremely important in a raw diet, but why? What's in the organs that they cannot get from the meat itself? :confused:

Just like in bones there are different nutrients they can't get from skeletal muscle meat. Also, different types of meat carry differing amounts of nutrients which is why we also stress to feed as much variety in protein sources as possible.

Gee, if I only knew how to do this stuff, my bull terrier group had all the basic meats/organs analyzed and broken down into what nutient levels they are worth.
beef liver per 4oz. is highest in niacin, vitamin B-12, iron, zinc, vit. A, beta carotene.
I have all the actual figures and stuff it's pretty informative.

You all teased me with the goods now. You might be able to just copy and paste the information. That would probably be the easiest way. :smile:

Yeah, and how do you do that? I told you guys I'm very computer illiterate. I didn't grow up with computers in school, didn't get to use them, we didn't get to use calculators either. Haha......

Exactly :wink:

So the documents are on a file download under Wordpad
If you can:

Open the file.

Highlight the full text of the file.

Use the right click, and a box should pop up.

Select copy.

Then come here and in a reply box, right click and select paste.

That should do it :biggrin:

***Although I have never used wordpad...***

So I have to bring more over, couldn't copy and paste the whole page cause I had to scroll, but maybe Natalie who is a whiz or anyone else who is; These numbers go directly underneath each other for instance Beef brisket water62.57 energy354 protein 1480 total lipid(fat)30.10 you get the gist now back to some more copy and paste.

They are on my bull terrier group for any one, it doesn't say anything about not using them or copying them, they are there for all members to use. It doesn't say who did the initial work. I'll add that raw4bullies is not a moderated group either unlike the other bullterrier groups I belong to. They also have alot of interesting articles on pancreatitis from Ian Billiwhatever his name is, and a article I found intersting on the zinc defiency that is common in Malmutes, Sibes and Bull terriers

Not sure if this is what your lookin for but here goes: Go to Yahoo- pets/groups yahoo.com/group/raw4bullie You do have to be approved for membership like any yahoo group, but like I said, this one is not moderated. They have lots of very good links in their files, but no one claims ownership of this one.
