Are Chicken Hearts Good for Dogs?


Are chicken hearts good for dogs? Yes, chicken hearts are a nutritious addition to a dog's diet when fed in moderation. They are also good for cats. 

Chicken hearts are an excellent source of the nine essential amino acids, making them a complete protein. Also a source of Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids crucial for brain function.

Benefits of Chicken Hearts for Dogs and Cats

The B-group vitamins in chicken hearts are necessary for a variety of cellular processes, including the breakdown of carbohydrates and the flow of nutrients. They are notably high in B12, essential for a healthy nervous system and brain function.

Chicken hearts are also high in the following minerals:
 – used to make energy, amino acids, collagen, hormones, and neurotransmitters

Copper – for immune protection to fight off infections. Also used to make collagen for skin, bones, and cartilage
Zinc – for immunity and wound healing, defends against free radicals
Phosphorus works with calcium to provide structure to bones and teeth

Organ meats are rich in nutrients. Dogs and cats have long eaten them as part of their natural diets. 

Hearts along with the brain and liver are rich in saturated fat and cholesterol which (believe it or not) is good for us as well as our pets!
