    I have read that a little liver is okay but too much can be bad. It can cause vitamin A toxicity. I have no idea how much is too much though.

    Maybe I'd best not feed it, just in case...x

    On catinfo.org, in the recipe for cat food, it says this about liver: "If using ground rabbit (which includes liver) from wholefoods4pets.com, do not add additional liver. If using chicken legs, thighs or a whole chicken carcass minus the organs, add 3-4 ounces of chicken livers per 3 lb of meat/bones/skin."

    Not that it tells us how much is too much, but the ratio she has is 3 to 4 ounces of liver to 3lbs of the rest. So, it seems that a pretty small percentage should be from liver.

    I think an occasional bit of liver is fine. I give Colin 1/3-1/2 of a chicken liver now and then as a snack, and when I get one that’s off their food, a bit of liver often gets them going again.

    My guys all love liver, and they get a small amount as a treat, on a regular basis.
