Tripe Truths: Helping with Digestion and Beyond
Posted on May 04 2022
Let's start with the basics...
What exactly is tripe? Tripe is the edible inner stomach lining of a variety of animals, in this case beef.
We sell two kinds of tripe: frozen green tripe and dried tripe stripes. They may be the same single ingredient, but they have two completely different benefits.
Frozen Green Tripe- Green tripe is not named for its color, but rather because it is uncleaned and unbleached. Why is this a good thing? The nutrients that remain in uncleaned tripe are amazing for your pups’ digestive system. Being probiotic packed, a natural source of essential fatty acids and low in phosphorus are just a few of its benefits.
It can be a great addition to the diet of a pet with kidney or digestive issues, or who needs extra dietary calories to support an active lifestyle. It is also recommended to wait until your pup is 6 months old to begin feeding green tripe. We love the K9 Kravings Frozen Green Tripe.
Dried Tripe Stripes- Dried tripe strips are made of tripe that is fully cleaned and then dried until hard. It is a crunchy and flavorful chew that is safe for puppies to elderly dogs. As an alternative to rawhide this is digestible and provides a good outlet for natural chewing behavior while promoting good dental health. We love the k9 Kraving Tripe Strips.
