Feeding Deer Hearts to Dogs

Are there any issues to be aware of if feeding raw deer (fallow) hearts in moderation to dogs? Thinking of adding a few chunks to the daily feed.
Thanks

Heart is super-rich so introduce it gently: as you say, a few chunks at a time. Otherwise, the squits follow for some dogs...

I slice the heart into 10-12 pieces then lay on a baking tray and freeze. Once frozen put them in a bag and then add one piece to he rnormal food (she is on raw meat anyway)

I got a nice roe doe yesterday evening, I was about to give the heart to the dog, then I thought nope, too good to miss. Diced, flash fried for a few minutes with mushrooms, onion, a pinch of paprika, salt and pepper - ridiculously tasty. The dog got the top section with the valves, and was jolly grateful too.
