Muscle Meat can be summed up as any meat without bones. Muscle Meat should be at least 80% of your pet's raw food diet. A few examples of muscle meat are:
Organs are a very important component of a raw diet. Consider organs your pet's multi-vitamin.
Because organs are so nutrient dense, they are a very rich part of your pet's diet. Overfeeding can cause diarrhea, dark stools or health issues in the future. It's important to make sure your are feeding organs in the proper amounts to maintain optimal health.

We have been taught that anything inside the body cavity of an animal (liver, heart, kidneys, etc.) is considered an organ but raw diets are built around secreting organs such as the kidney, liver and spleen.
The Prey Model Diet calls for 5% of the diet to be liver and 5% of the diet to be other secreting organs.
As an example, say your dog eats 1 lb. each day on the Prey Model Raw Diet:
16 oz x 0.05 = 0.8 oz
16 oz. x 0.05 = 0.8 oz.
16 oz. x 0.10 = 1.6 oz.
16 oz. x 0.80 = 12.8 oz.
Raw Food Diets require raw edible bones. Raw Meaty Bones are edible bones that are covered in muscle meat, connective tissue and may include skin. These bones are soft enough for your pet to eat without causing damage. Raw Meaty Bones provide calcium and other nutrients which are vital in creating a firm stool.
