5 Best Sources of Iron for Dogs 

By Manish Choudhary

Lean meats such as beef, chicken, and turkey are rich in iron and provide high-quality protein. 

1. Lean Meat

While organ meats like liver and kidney are rich in nutrients and iron, it's important to feed them in moderation to prevent an overdose of certain vitamins and minerals.  

2. Organ Meats

Fish, especially types like salmon and tuna, are excellent sources of iron and omega-3 fatty acids for your dog.  

3. Fish

Eggs are a nutritious and easily digestible source of iron for your dog. Both the egg white and yolk contain iron, with the yolk offering additional essential nutrients.  

4. Eggs

Vegetables like spinach and kale are iron-rich, but it's important to note that plant-based iron (non-heme iron) isn't as easily absorbed as iron from animal sources (heme iron).  

5. Dark Leafy Greens

Make sure your dog gets a balanced diet that meets all their needs, even though these sources can provide iron. If you're worried about your dog's iron levels or nutrition, talk to your vet. They can help with personalized advice on the right diet for your dog's age, size, and health.
