How Freeze Dried Beef Organ Treats Support Gut Health

When it comes to canine health and wellness, gut health is a top priority. One of the best ways to improve it is with organ meats! Here’s how to improve gut health with organ meats, and which organ meats are best.

Dog Diets: How to Improve Gut Health with Organ Meats

Introducing organ meats into your dog’s diet can be a game changer for their overall well-being—especially for their gut health. This is because organs like the liver, heart, and kidney are nutrient-dense and packed with vitamins and minerals that support digestive health. Here are two ways to introduce organ meats into your dog’s diet.

1. Incorporate into Meals

The first way to improve gut health with organ meats is with mealtime. Get Joys Fresh Freeze Dried Chicken Meal includes chicken liver and the Fresh Freeze Dried Beef Meal include beef liver and kidney. Like with any diet change, this should be done gradually over some time rather than instantaneously.

A slow change will help your dog adjust to the new ingredient, without risking an overwhelming change to their digestive system. Be sure to also keep the diet well balanced with other nutritional foods.

2. Use as Treats

You can also use organ meats as treats. Get Joy’s Freeze-Dried Beef Organ Treats, for example, are single-ingredient organ meat treats that provide the essential vitamins and minerals you’re looking for in treat form!

For dog parents who are looking to prioritize their dog’s gut health, there’s no denying the nutritional benefits of organ meats in canine diets. But if you’re unsure of how to incorporate organ meats into your dog’s diet, you can speak with a veterinarian first with Get Joy Health. 

Which Organ Meats are the Best Foods for Gut Health?

Organ meats support a dog’s overall health and well-being, but there are three specific organs that are the best foods for gut health.

  • Heart: The heart is filled with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) which helps with overall cellular health, including the gut. It also supports cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of heart issues.
  • Liver: Packed with vitamin A, liver meat helps to maintain a healthy lining in the gut. This is essential for proper digestion. The liver also supports vision health and helps to maintain a healthy and shiny coat.
  • Kidney: With high levels of vitamin B12, kidney meat supports enzyme production which is vital for digestion. The kidney also supports muscle development and repair.

These are all meats that can be found in Get Joy’s single-ingredient Beef Organ Treats. With our freeze-drying process, our organ meat treats are not only delicious but nutrient-dense to ensure your dog receives as much nutrition as possible.
