NZ Liver is a great source of high-quality protein, vitamins & minerals. Your cats and dogs will love this nutritional powerhouse treat.
Compared to muscle meats, it is lower in calories and fat and far superior in terms of vitamins and minerals.
Beef liver contains up to 100 times more nutrient than any other meat, which is an excellent choice for your furry friend. It means that only small amount during the day is enough to keep him sated. The liver also has health benefits because it cleans your dog’s body from the toxins. But, like with any food, you need to use moderate amounts and about three times a week will be more than enough.
- Protein – a source of energy but its main role in the body is growth and repair
- Vitamin A – is important in maintaining good eyesight, especially night vision. It is also important for growth and helping us to fight infection.
- Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) – is needed for growth and overall good health. It helps the body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy, and it allows oxygen to be used by the body. It is also important for eye health.
- Vitamin B6 – allows the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food and form haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen around the body.
- Vitamin B9 – is especially important to pregnant cats and dogs. Folic acid is part of the cell multiplication process and helps to synthesize DNA. A fetus needs a great deal of folic acid, making it easy for a pregnant bitch to develop a deficiency.
- Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) – helps with protein synthesis, fights against anemia, and is part of the production of red blood cells
- Choline – Choline and Inositol build cell membrane and take part in protecting your pet’s skin from dehydration. Inositol alone plays a role in nerve conduction.
- Copper – formation of a dog’s bones, connective tissue, collagen, and myelin (the protective covering of nerves). Copper also helps the body absorb iron, making it an important part of red blood cell function.
- Iron – The first benefit of iron in dogs is in the synthesis of blood. This mineral is directly involved in the formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. In addition, iron is necessary for a number of enzyme functions in your dog’s body.
- Selenium – this mineral has been found to be able to slow down cellular aging caused by oxidation. It also promotes and preserves tissue elasticity, so it can help maintain healthy membrane tissues and so much more.
- Filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body.
- The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines.
- The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.
