Default Article on the benefits of feeding tripe

I thought some of you might find this an interesting read. I am always extolling the virtues of raw green tripe as a doggy superfood, this explains why it is so great.

Good read! I have been feeding Honey green tripe every morning, and she wolfs it down!

Thanks for sharing that. I have green tripe stuff from zooplus but I'm guessing since it's dry that it's cooked or dried? Does it still have nutritional benefit? Where do you guys get your raw trips from?

The treats are usually dried, and still have the nutritional benefits. Tripe also contains an enzyme that helps to keep teeth clean, I would imagine the dried sticks are actually better for that.
I get mine from a couple of local pet shops. One is Prize Choice freeflow mince, which is really handy as you can just pour out as much as you need at a time and because it is mince it defrosts really quickly, ideal if you have forgotten to get anything out.
The other pet shop sells it in 1lb blocks, which is small chunks and much more stinky than the PC mince. This is the one my lot prefer, it looks absolutely revolting! The brand is Tammy, it is produced locally.
I know Natural Instinct sell tubs of green tripe, (more expensive, but theirs is only 4 hours from slaughter to being frozen, so it is very fresh and supposedly less stinky) and all the companies that supply bulk frozen dog meat carry tripe, some even stock lambs tripe.
It is also the perfect addition to kibble if you want to increase the overall amount of meat in your dogs diet.

I've been feeding tripe to my dogs for the last 23 years years ago
My terriers just had tripe,mixer& vitamins and did amazingly

I feed Natural Instincts green tripe - it is great quality
And as Stella said 'very fresh' .... You can really tell the difference between it and
'Other' frozen tripes! It's well worth the money
Quality is so important to me, I once brought 40 kg of
'Cheaper' minces and throw it all away the quality was so bad
( wont do that again)

When I first changed my kirby to raw ( he has pancreatitis &
Was really poorly ) he had NI green tripe & chicken - it really saved his life

Thanks Stella. I can always count on you for great advice I'll try asking my butcher but if they don't have any I might try getting a delivery from natural instinct or somewhere. The only problem is having a tiny freezer...I wish I had another one. I thought I would give it a try and see if it helps Mylo with his tummy problems. They're currently chewing on some of the tripe treats I've just gotten from zooplus....it's funny because Mylo rubs his face all over them!

Natural instincts make a ' turkey & tripe' meal -
Which is great as you get 'bone' in it so makes a great full
Meal
