Beef Spleen Updated on: March 27th, 2019

The spleen is an important part of the immune system. It clears out old blood cells, and stores white blood cells and platelets, which are both important in fighting off infections.

why we feed

Although liver is densely packed with nutrients, because it can only make up 5% of your dog’s raw diet, something else must be supplemented in to complete your dog’s diet. That’s where other secreting organs, such as spleen, come in. Spleen is packed with nutrients, moreso than meat and bone. Your dog’s raw diet needs 5% other secreting organs to balance it out.

how to feed

Most dogs love organ meats, but if yours is picky, you can make organ cubes, which consists of ground up organ mixed with ground up meat, goat’s milk, kefir, veggie blend, or bone broth.

Additional info

Although the spleen is really important to your immune system, humans can actually survive without a spleen.
