Pork Kidney Updated on: March 30th, 2019

The kidneys are a pair of organs that are located near the spine. They help produce red blood cells, filter waste from the blood, maintain blood pressure, and keep electrolytes balanced.

why we feed

The kidney is a great option for another secreting organ (other than spleen) for your dog’s raw diet (keep in mind you can always feed kidney with your dog's kibble as well). Kidneys, like other organs too, are said to be the best thing you can feed your dog because of all of the vitamins and nutrients.

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. Real Dog Box kidney treats can also be used as training treats to help your dog get it’s 5% liver requirement.

Additional info

The waste that the kidneys filter out of the blood turn into urine, and are relieved through the bladder.
