|I get my organs from local farmers who are grass fed and free ranged, butcher, meat processor and grocery store like walmart or meijer or marsh etc.
My beef with by products in kibble is all it says animal by product uh what animal? or poultry by product again what poultry duck, chicken, turkey? and so on. it doesn't specify what kind of by product either should say beef kidney, beef liver, beef heart etc.
Nature's variety has liver in it, but it list what animal it came from so that's good..
organs are good for dogs, but nice know what kind because well a dog might be allergic to chicken, but OK with duck or turkey, but why take chance with it if it doesn't say what kind bird it is..
Or say kibble says animal by product and dog does ok on it for a bit, but all sudden next bag doesn't do good maybe allergies got bad or maybe that animal this batch is a animal the dog is allergic to..

See how it lists what kind organs is in it.
I try get my organs mostly from local farms sometimes I get little bit from grocery, butcher or meat processor.
I also feed things like chicken feet, whole prey quail she eats everything on the quail sometimes she might not eat it's stomach or intestines sometimes she does.. I plan to get some chicken heads along with the chicken feet from a local farmer who has free ranged chicken and pigs it's amazing how the farm doesn't smell compared to closed shelter type farms sad so many farmers farm that way smell is horrible..
I like seeing the chickens walk on the grass following me around.
