I know what you’re thinking. Tripe? Insert vomit emoji here. Yes, tripe is stomach lining and that seems gross, but it has a number of benefits:
- high in protein
- contains digestive enzymes and probiotics
- rich in fatty acids
- minimally processed
One of the best ways to get tripe into your dog’s diet is in the freeze-dried form because it’s less messy and doesn’t smell horrendous (but still smells delicious to your dog).
Our first experience with freeze-dried tripe was Dr. Tim’s Natural Clean Tripe Genuine Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Treats.
Dr. Tim’s tripe treats are made in the U.S.A. with 100% beef tripe from Wisconsin cows.
The 4-ounce bag (available on Chewy.com for $13.99) comes filled to the brim with a variety of sizes of tripe “chips” that can be fed to either your dog or cat. I like that there are large and small chunks so you can pick which is right for your pet based on their size and appetite.
Case in point, Teton might get a few chips while Henley Pretzel just gets one.
Speaking of those two, they both ranked Dr. Tim’s as a high value treat. 😉
We have another Dr. Tim’s treat review headed your way later this week, so stay tuned for that.
