Default Giving liver to dog with anemia...

OK so since Rosey was found to have anemia, we've been giving her liver daily, because it's much cheaper than supplements my vet offered She does get it cooked, because it's just not feasible for us to give it to her raw.

Is there a certain amount I should be giving her? She gets home-cooked meals for dinner, and so the liver is just mixed in with that. I cook it up in large batches, and baggie into daily portions (if I'm gone, others can feed her that way) then freeze and thaw as needed. Her dinners right now are random mix of (some times she gets a bit of everything... sometimes she gets only a couple things, etc, but she always has liver) liver, kidney, pork shoulder, pork chops, chicken thighs, fish, then a little goat and duck. I think that's it. It's been a while

She's 40ish lbs, and is currently getting around 2oz of liver a day. (I think... she gets 115grams of dinner, and about half that is liver)

Goodbye, Rosey. You were the best girl I could have asked for. 10/15/96-03/08/13
