Pork Heart Updated on: March 27th, 2019

The heart pumps blood to the whole body and helps with circulation. It is crucial and without the heart, the animal will die.

why we feed

Like chicken heart, pork heart is high in zinc, selenium, iron, and certain B vitamins, which help with heart health.

how to feed

Pork hearts are dense and rich, so they can be used as a high value training treat (such as potty training a pup or recall) or sprinkled on your dog’s meal as a meal topper. Especially kibble feeders, heart is recommended to feed to avoid the dog lacking in taurine when eating lots of grain free based foods.

Additional info

TCM states that you should always feed what the dog lacks in (for example, if the dog has a heart disease, feeding heart is supposed to help as best as possible)
