Default Liver Soup (for dogs that won't eat)

Several people have been asking about how to get their dogs to eat. Here is an old shelter standby, for getting starving/malnourished/finicky dogs to eat, when nothing else seems to work.

Liver Soup

1 pound raw beef liver, sliced thin into 1/2" pieces
5 cups water
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pinch salt, optional

Par-freeze the liver to make slicing easier, then, slice thinly, and cut into 1/2" pieces. Place the water and salt in a pan and bring to a boil. Add liver and garlic, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the liver is grey-brown and cooked through. The mixture can be served, as is, or put in a blender and pureed to a gravy consistency. Serve a few spoonfuls of broth and liver over kibble to entice a malnourished dog to eat.

I can vouch for this recipie. I was one of the posters; worried about my old dog's lack of appetite. We tried this soup over his biscuits (kibble in the USA?), this morning and evening and he ate up every last one. The other dogs enjoyed it too!

It's easy to make and not too smelly. I am vegan so the smell of cooking meat is not one of my favourites at the best of times, but this wasn't as bad as I'd expected it to be.

Thanks again Vagreys for sharing this.

A little fresh garlic, or a very small amount of concentrated garlic (i.e., dried, granulated or powdered) isn't going to hurt. Yes, domestic garlic contains n-propyl disulfide and thiosulfate, like onions, but not as much and not as concentrated. Wild garlic is about as strong as onion and should be avoided. The amount in this recipe, distributed throughout the mixture, with a serving of the soup being a few spoonfuls, isn't going to be harmful.
