Idahound's Green Beef Tripe comes from the many of the same animals we use to make our Beef & Vegetable Raw Diets and Moo Chews. After cleaning, we run the tripe through our grinder, package each log, and freeze. We don't mess with the intrinsic goodness of tripe by bleaching or treating it with high amounts of heat.
A true super food, Idahound’s raw green tripe (ruminant’s stomach) is delicious and nutrient-rich. 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.
Why feed your dog capsules of probiotics when one organ can naturally provide all of those microorganisms and more? With beneficial digestive enzymes, vitamins, fatty and amino acids, raw green tripe is simply one of the greatest things you can give to your hound.
