What is Freeze Dried Green Tripe?
TYPES OF TRIPE
Supermarket Tripe VS Green Tripe
Green tripe is the untreated contents of a grazing animal’s stomach or intestines. It may sound disgusting, but this food is highly nutritious, containing plenty of enzymes, good bacteria, and nutrients that are excellent for your pet’s health. It’s also a very natural part of both dogs and cats’ ancestral diets. Since both dogs and cats were hunters before being domesticated, they would often consume their prey’s stomach and other entrails. For carnivores, this can be one of the sole sources of many essential vitamins and nutrients. Green tripe is called green not because of its colour, but because it is untouched, unbleached, and untreated, though it is usually lightly rinsed. While green tripe can be tinted green due to grass or hay eaten by the host animal, it’s predominantly brown.
We have experience with feeding green tripe as part of our dogs raw meals on occasion. It is one of the worst smelling and stomach churning ingredients that we love to include for its health benefits but hate to process. That’s why we were excited to try Raw Paws Freeze Dried Green Tripe. This particular product is best used as a training treat in our experience. The freeze dried green tripe is broken into small pieces pieces prefect for training. Overall we were impressed by the fast shipping and simple yet good quality packaging.
