How to Cook Chicken Livers for Dogs

by Amanda Maddox

Chicken liver may help your dog enjoy his food more.

A well-balanced diet for your furry friend contains a mixture of protein and carbohydrates. Since the introduction of processed dog food in the early 1900s, poultry by-products have been used in dry and moist dog foods. This makes chicken livers a great choice for an added treat or topping to spruce up your pet’s meal.

Step 1

Wash the chicken livers under cool water. This helps remove any debris from packaging.

Step 2

Place up to 10 livers in a medium-sized pot and cover them with about 1 inch cool water.

Step 3

Bring the water to a boil over high heat on the stove. Simmer the livers on low for about 15 minutes until they are tender.

Step 4

Remove the pot from the heat. Drain the water and allow the livers to cool on a plate.

Step 5

Dice the livers and serve them to your pooch. Only feed him two or three at a time, once or twice a week.
