Do you know if the milk they claim is RDH (not sure if that is the right hormone) free is actually free of that hormone or is it just another ploy to get more money out of me? I buy that for my boys, they'll go through puberty plenty fast for me already! Thank goodness I should at least have another five years before the first one starts. (Ages 2 and 5)

There is one brand called Organic Farms that seems to be pretty clean.

Too much liver will give a dog VERY loose stool. It is too "rich". It is also loaded with cholesterol......do dogs have problems with clogged arteries? If not, we need to find out why not, and bottle it for humans!!!!!!!!

I don't believe they do have the same problems handling fats, Manchesters. Shoot, I'd LOVE to have Kharma's metabolism . . . she just gets longer and taller and grows more muscles.

I've seen a lot of overweight dogs and I mean REALLY overweight, but your saying they don't get cholosteral?? That would be awesome! LOL

cholesterol isn't an issue for dogs. their digestive system and metabolism is well adapted to utilize fats as a source of energy.

i feed liver as a part of a homemade diet and i take an extra trip to buy organic. because vitamins A and D are fat soluable vitamins, meaning they are stored in the fat and excess is not expelled in the urine, there is a possibility of overdose. it is important to not feed too much liver, especially if you are already feeding a commercial diet that is high in vitamin A.
