I'm sorry to hear of this with Pickinize. If the majority of her diet were braunschweiger (pork liver sausage), she would become nutritionally imbalanced; hypervitaminosis A is a significant risk. As a portion of a home cooked diet, however, it shouldn't be a problem. Are you interested in cooking a balanced home-cooked diet for her? Please let me know. I have recipes with liver, chicken, ground beef, eggs, cottage cheese, or tofu as primary protein sources.

I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.
