Re: glandular supplements
They are designed to be given in addition to organs. Mostly because unless you are feeding whole prey (and most don't!) you'll be lucky to get more than just liver. Heart is really considered muscle meat. The glandular supplements take place of things like spleen, pancreas, etc.
I've really wanted to get some for my dog as I really do lack a lot of variety and to be honest, organs in general. I'll feed whole chickens and whatever comes with them, and every now and then remember to buy some beef liver to split into several feedings but that's about it. I used to be able to find kidneys but have had a really hard time lately.
I don't think its an absolute necessity but I think its a great addition if you can manage it.
