*GREEN TRIPE IS FROZEN: We have a 15 POUND CART MINIMUM for frozen items. Learn More
Tripe is raw, unprocessed stomach tissue from ruminants, such as cows or sheep.
Nutritionally, tripe has a 1:1 calcium to phosphorus ratio and is slightly acidic, both of which are ideal for a dog's digestion. Idahound's raw green tripe matches the protein fat and fiber content of levels of our complete and balanced diets, yet it's only one ingredient!
Tripe also contains the essential omega-6 and -3 fatty acids in their recommended proportions, as well as magnesium, potassium, B-complex vitamins, the amino acid taurine, other amino acids essential for muscular development. Not surprisingly, tripe is home to large amounts of Lactobacillus acidophilus, an intestinal bacteria that keeps unwanted bacteria such as e-coli and salmonella from overpopulating the gut and causing health problems. A balance of microflora in the gut is extremely important to maintaining good health and keeping a dog’s immune system in shape.
After thoroughly emptying and cleaning the four compartments of the animal's stomach Idahound coarsely grinds the entire organ, including the rumen, reticulum, omasum and abomasum.
Unlike other tripe sold on the market, Idahound strictly adheres to the idea of raw GREEN tripe. There is no bleaching, no heat treatment, and no other industrial processes used that would lower the nutritional value of certain vitamins and enzymes.
