How To Feed Your Dog Tripe
Can you smell that? Yep, you’re right… It’s tripe!
Tripe can be a really tasty, nutritious addition to our dog’s diet. Despite the smelly aroma that comes with it, health benefits ooze from this chewy stomach lining treat.
Is tripe healthy for my dog?
If you’ve got a fussy eater in the pack, tripe can be a super easy way of getting heaps of nutrients added to their meal. Although it can be rather stinky to us humans, that smell makes it super palatable for our pooches. Yay! No more pushing dinner around the bowl with that twitching nose.
For those with sensitive tummies, tripe can be a wag-tastic choice as it contains healthy bacteria and probiotics that aid digestion and give the immune system a boost.
Is tripe a complete meal?
No, tripe isn’t a complete meal for your pup. Despite it being a nutrient su-paw-star, tripe misses some key vitamins and minerals needed for your dog’s diet to be considered complete. Try adding it to existing meals for a healthy kick or to add some encouragement for those who tend to go off their food from time to time.
How much tripe should I feed my dog?
You can feed tripe to your dog as often as you like. Just make sure you work it into your calorie calculations… Tripe is a lean option, but it’s still important to feed in limited quantities to avoid any accidental weight gain!
When looking at the ratio in your dog’s bowl, tripe should fall into the muscle meat percentage, so be sure to not drop any of the other essential parts that make the meal balanced. If you’re a little unsure about the ins and outs of what your dog’s bowl should look like, check out our previous FAQs blog here.
Is tripe expensive?
Tripe can be a really affordable way of adding a ton of vitamins and minerals to your dog’s menu, so it can be a terrific option when it comes to making sure your dog is healthy, without breaking the bank.
