Wild carnivores eat meat, bones, intestines, internal organs and glands, such as liver, spleen, thyroid, kidneys, brain, adrenals, etc. Dog’s being carnivores makes glandular therapy for them a necessity. No way around it.
Dogs and cats are carnivores/predators. For millennia, they have survived by eating other animals. Observation of wild carnivores shows us that the first parts eaten after the kill are typically the abdominal contents (liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenals, pancreas and intestines) because the highest priority is placed on eating these organs. Muscle meats are often left to other scavengers, or eaten at a later time. But what is the value of consuming organs, specifically glandular tissues?
Glandular tissues contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, peptides, nucleotides, and other nutrients, specific to each organ.
Today, processed pet foods do not include glandular tissues as ingredients, even those who feed a raw diet to their dogs often neglect to include some organs and glands – the animal tissue used in processed pet foods and the many of the raw diets is mostly muscle meat.
The removal of this traditional food group may well be contributing to the growing number of chronic health conditions seen in pets today.
