Eat Your Heart Out.... FurBabies

Posted by Michael Hansley on

Valentine’s is just around the corner. We will be inundated with tons of heart shaped boxes and roses everywhere we go. A heartfelt getaway is so much better than a box of chocolates, even if it’s just a 20-minute drive. You will feel like you are in a different place. Oh wait, you are – which is all you need to jumpstart the romance. So call ahead to the hotel or bed and breakfast, request some bubbly for your room, and have some amazing chocolate covered berries to top it all off.

Now you’ll have to leave your furbaby at home on this little escapade, but they would love a valentine’s gift as well. What could be more suiting than a box of hearts? Beef, chicken, and turkey hearts…..Oh My!! These tasty little snacks are not only delicious but are extremely nutritious. Compared to muscle meat, hearts are more densely packed with just about every nutrient, including heavy doses of B vitamins, folic acid, protein, thiamine, folate, selenium, phosphorus, and zinc. Hearts also contain twice as much collagen and elastin than regular meat. These are essential for connective tissue health, joint health and digestive health

Bird hearts like turkey, chicken, and duck have more taurine than the hearts of most other animals. Raw hearts are also a better source of taurine than cooked hearts. Cats are obligate carnivores and need a diet of mostly animal meat and internal organs to thrive. Furthermore, they need food containing quality taurine that is readily available or they will develop serious health issues. Feeding hearts weekly, at minimum, can prevent these issues because taurine levels are exceptionally high in raw hearts. Have a heart, get some for your furbaby today…
