What is Tripe?


Is Tripe Appropriate Food for Cats and Dogs?

Have you wondered if tripe would do any good for your mutts, pups and nobles? A popular ethnic food in many parts of Africa, the UK and Asia, tripe is not new at all, but it’s quickly becoming a popular natural health choice for fur kids. Tripe refers to “a type of edible offal from the stomachs of various farm animals” (see: Tripe is a type of edible lining from the stomachs of various farm animals (Wikipedia)). Tripe can come from any ruminating (grazing) animal with a stomach, but most commonly cattle, pigs, sheep or lamb, and goats. Real meat based food for dogs is naturally rich in real bioavailable amino acids (protein), a source of many natural vitamins and minerals, including real micro-nutrients such as selenium, iron, and niacin. All animal protein sources is naturally rich in taurine.
