|I prefer to feed larger portions of beef heart less often. I consider heart a sort of "other" like lung or tripe... It's not really muscle meat, but it's not really an organ. I feed such items roughly 15% of my overall diet.
The reasoning behind feeding heart in larger, spaced out meals is it's high in copper. Which is great - copper is necessary - but copper can block zinc absorption. Considering my breed is genetically prone to poor zinc absorption, I'd rather they have days of just zinc-rich beef muscle meat, no copper-rich heart (or liver, for that matter).
