Green Tripe - Meat for Dogs, Cats, Ferrets
By far one of the best, most natural food you could feed your carnivore friend. It has been a well known secret by some of the top breeders and performance dogs for years.
Green Tripe helps improve your dogs,cats or ferrets:
WHAT is raw green tripe? Tripe is the fourth chamber of the stomach, called the abomasum, of ruminating (hooved, 4 footed, grazing mammal, for example: cattle, buffalo, sheep, deer, goat, etc.) animals. In this chamber the food is mixed with gastric juices, amino acids and other digestive enzymes. After the solid matter of Green Tripe is digested, the gastric juices and digestive enzymes continue to aid the animal in digesting and efficiently utilizing his food over the next several meals. Though it is called "green," because it has a high chlorophyll content a green substrate, in reality it is often grayish brown as a result of other undigested compounds. However, this content is desirable to dogs and many other carnivores and is often used in pet food.
Dogs don’t have the necessary enzymes to enable them to digest cellulose (Cellulose is the structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants) which is a normal part of vegetable matter. The stomach content of wild animals is eaten by wolves. The stomach content is what we call “tripe”. Unbleached tripe contains pre-digested food loaded with gastric enzymes, amino acids, and other gastric "juices". The gastric enzymes not only help the cow in digestion, but also aid the canine in digesting and efficiently utilizing his food. The amino acids are necessary for muscular development and, the other gastric juices, I believe, are the best cleaner for their teeth! Because of its rubbery texture, serving it in large chunks also aids the canine in strengthening its jaw muscles and has an added benefit as a form of canine dental floss. It contains such a large variety of proteins that it is very close to covering all needs we know of at this time. The proof is that many dogs that have been fed almost exclusively raw tripe as their only meat source have demonstrated superior health compared to most other feeding regimes... Unfortunately, this has never been systematically researched, but the anecdotal evidence is very clear, and it is well supported by chemical analysis of the nutrients in tripe. The good news is that the meat humans value the most (lean, free of tendons, fat, cartilage etc.) is the least valuable for the dog! The best meat you can buy for your dog is generally the cheaper meat, not the most expensive meat!
So what makes green tripe the perfect food for the canine? Recently, an analysis of a sample of the packaged frozen tripe was performed by Woodson-Tenant Laboratories, Inc. in Georgia. The results were what many people had speculated but never proven with scientific fact. The calcium:phosphorous ratio is indeed 1:1, the overall pH is on the acidic side which is better for digestion, protein is 15.1, fat 11.7 and of course it contained the essential fatty acids, Linoleic and Linolenic, in their recommended proportions. What was surprising to find, was the presence of Lactic Acid Bacteria. Lactic Acid Bacteria, also known as Lactobacillus Acidophilus, is the good intestinal bacteria. It is the main ingredient in probiotics.
Within a couple of weeks of feeding green tripe, you will noticed drastic improvements in coat, skin, energy, teeth and stools…less in number, small and hard…a good sign that the canine is efficiently utilizing his food.
