1. What exactly is a "lamb plug"?
2. Does it matter what kind of organ meat? Meaning, should I feed predominantly beef liver with some kidneys, chicken hearts, etc? Is there some sort of breakdown I should be following?
3. Does heart qualify as organ meat or muscle meat? Because it is an organ... but also a muscle, so I am confused. :-\

No idea what a "lamb plug" is...I havent fed Lamb yet.Originally Posted by Baloo317
Ive fed predominantly chicken organs (hearts gizzards liver) but Ive also fed beef kidney (STINKS!!!!!!! WOOFA!) And beef heart.......I dont know....chicken hearts are gobbled up quickly (I usually throw it into their morning meal which is ground turkey or beef) but a beef heart if you choose to try it....Id say muscle meat.....it takes them a long time to be able to rip that sucker open and its bigger then the size of your fist. Its pretty tough with the valves and all.
1. Don't know what a "lamb plug" is. First time I've ever heard of it.
2. Ideal is to feed whole prey and organs proportions take care of themselves. When feeding individual organs, think of proportion found in whole animal and feed to those proportions. Feeding predominantly liver with other mixed organs is a good practical alternative to the ideal. Because it is so rich in absorbable nutrients, liver is probably the most important organ to have in a dog's diet.
3. Feed heart as a muscle meat not as an organ meal.
