Found this:

Tripe is considered by many experts to be one of the most complete foods for carnivores. It is actually the stomachs of the cow and contains a plethora of enzymes and beneficial bacteria.
Hmm, sounds good to me. Interesting that we've never heard about it :?

I feed my dogs grass fed green tripe. You have to make sure it's green unbleached tripe to get all of the nutrients out of it.

Tripe is awesome and I HIGHLY recommend it.

I kept my late pit alive for 2 whole years with cancer, I swear it was because I fed her tripe and sealmeal everyday.

I recommend Solid Gold Green Cow Tripe, it stinks to hell when you open it but I swear the smell goes away.

I believe Merrick has a canned food containing Tripe that doesn't smell, but it's not pure tripe like the Green Cow is.

And it looks like baby poo...
:?

My grandma used to send us a jar of pickled pig's feet every year for Christmas...the catch was that she wrapped ALL the gifts she sent us, but didn't put "to" on them...so we all cautiously opened the gifts, waiting to see who would be the 'lucky one' thatgot to open the jar of pig's feet...ewwww!!!

Knowing Moose he would hate it. I am like always having problems with his eating. He now gets Wolfking kibble with a 1/2 can of Merrick dog food. So far he only likes the Turducen (turkey, duck and chicken). I tried others and no luck. I will try the tripe but I'm sure he will turn his nose up to it.

I feed my dogs the tripe from www.greentripe.com It's pretty stinky stuff but they love it. I guess most dogs seem to love it, even the picky ones. It's a completely balanced meal and supposed to be one of the healthiest things you can give a dog. Check out the pics on the site to get a visual. The first time I looked at the pics I almost died! The things we do for these darn dogs!!!! :lol:

Tripe is a type of edible offal made from the stomach of various domestic animals. Beef tripe is typically made from the first three of a cow's four stomachs, the rumen (blanket/flat/smooth tripe), the reticulum (honeycomb and pocket tripe), and the omasum (book/bible/leaf tripe). Abomasum (reed) tripe is also seen, but with much less frequency, owing to its glandular tissue content. Sheep and pork tripe are also produced.

Fresh tripe, which includes bits of the stomach's last content, smells very unappetizing for humans but is a favourite of many dogs and other carnivores. Tripe has to be watered and meticulously cleaned for human consumption. "Green tripe" refers to unwashed tripe, not suitable for human consumption but often used in dog food. Green tripe is not actually green, but dark brown.


My father had us kids eating tripe (cleaned and white and brined) and pickle pigs feet and beef tongue and ox tail and frog legs. Liked it all.
:D

Awww common! It's like watching Fear Factor but the participants are actually enjoying the disgusting feast! :wink: :lol: YOu can get it freeze dried too and it doesn't really smell as bad. I'm used to my house smelling like a barnyard though from all the bully sticks we go through.
