|It is the sodium per serving as printed in the nutrition box. Do you get that on your meat? I mostly see it here in California but even in other states it isn't always on the package.
Max *needs* all of 160 mg sodium a day [more is fine] and last time I got enhanced chicken and even a bit of beef for stir fry for Sassy [I soaked, cooked and drained it twice!] it was up to 330 mg sodium per serving. I guess he would get 2.5 servings or so of that raw, 900 mg or so if I gave it to him. Ouch.
It is a problem for some dogs and not a problem for others. My boiling it seems to work for Sassy but I am sure there is still more sodium than she needs in it. Max has had the boiled stuff as treats but not raw. Hoping to never have to do that.
