Green tripe is the tried and true perfect gift from Mother Nature. Let's not kid ourselves, it's yukky but believe me, your dog will love it. So let's take a closer look at this nutritious mystery food. Maybe your dog knows something you don't. If he loves it, there must be a reason why.
Oh why do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
So, your dog will be getting natural enzymes, gastric juices, amino acids, essential fatty acids, beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus acidophilus or lactic acid, as would be found in yoghurt and kefir, along with chlorophyll, protein, vitamins and minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc and selenium. A true and natural buffet array of dog nutrition.
Some grazing animals are called ruminants and are classified by the number of stomach compartments they have, and by what plants they graze on. Some ruminants have four stomach compartments and some have only three stomach chambers. Some ruminants graze on grass only, and some graze on grass, leaves and twigs.
Cows, sheep, goats, moose, deer, elk, camels, bison, llamas and alpacas are examples of ruminant grazers because of their multiple stomach chambers. People, dogs and pigs only have one stomach. We are mono-grastic.
Green tripe refers to the raw unprocessed contents of these multiple stomach chambers, which systematically break down forage ( vegetable matter ) plants.
Green tripe is not called green tripe because it's green. The word ' green ' refers to it's unprocessed raw-ness. Whatever you do, don't buy the bleached white tripe you can sometimes find at the grocery store. It's useless!
Dogs are predators. Grazing animals are prey. Predator animals eat prey animals. That's the way life is. Why is it that we don't want to think of our beloved dogs in this way? Well, the truth is the truth. Dogs are predators. So it makes sense then, that Mother Nature would provide within the prey animal's body, everything the predator carnivore needs nutritionally. There are no mistakes in nature.
Why are you so revolted by the ' ick ' of nutritious raw feeding components. Why is the thought of feeding the raw predigested stomach contents of a prey animal to your predator dogs, so off putting?
I'm on a mission to get dog owners used to the idea of feeding icky foods such as green tripe, because it's life changing food. The truth is, raw tripe for dogs is miracle food. This is Mother Nature's way. There are no mistakes in Nature!
So let me ask you, does your bag or can of commercial dog food, replicate what Mother Nature would provide for your dog? If your raw dog food doesn't contain any bone or organs or green tripe, why not?
You can find this miracle tripe food at better independent pet stores and some ethnic markets. It will come cleaned up, frozen and all bagged up in one or two pound packages, or even freeze dried. You can also check your local raw feeders coop in your area. They will likely be able to direct you to cheaper sources for bulk buying.
If you're lucky enough to find a big piece, this is an excellent chewy way for your dog to clean his teeth. Make sure you have a freezer. If you get really desperate, you can buy canned. It's not as good, but it's better than nothing.
This perfect food from Mother Nature's gift of ruminant animals, is especially important for dogs with health problems such as...
Dogs have been eating this natural food for many many thousands of years, long before kibble. Start with a small amount and work up to your dog's tolerance level. This miracle food is highly nutritious and therefore can start a natural cleanse if you start with too much...and just remember, it stinks!
