Grass-Fed Green Tripe
What is Green Tripe?
We call tripe the “super food” for dogs and cats. This supplemental food is low in fat, while being high in essential fatty acids. It’s a great source of potassium, vitamins, magnesium and a calcium-phosphorus ratio of 1:1, ideal for both dogs and cats. It also contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a valuable pro-biotic that aids in digestion. Tripe smells strong to us, but your pet will love the taste.
Green tripe, in its raw, natural state, is the stomach lining of ruminant or grazing animals such as cattle, sheep, bison and oxen. Ruminants have unique four-chamber stomachs that utilize a multitude of digestive enzymes, amino acids, and gastric juices to break down ingested grasses. The grass is swallowed unchewed, passed into the first two chambers, is then regurgitated, chewed to combine with saliva and then swallowed a second time where it then heads to the 3rd and 4th stomach chambers and is finally digested.
Why is it Beneficial to my Dogs Diet?
It takes energy to digest food. Digestive enzymes make that process easier so less energy is expended and nutrients can be absorbed more fully. When your dog or cat consumes a bio-available meal such as green tripe, she is also consuming those digestive enzymes and “good” bacteria that help in digestion.
Not only is green tripe rife with nutritional and health benefits it’s also highly palatable to dogs and cats. When you need to get your pet to eat, this is the stuff. Whether your pet is a truly finicky eater, has an upset stomach, or on vet-prescribed medication that is interfering with a normal appetite, tripe should be your first choice. Its scent and taste are beloved by all dogs and cats: young or old, big and small.
