Venison Green Tripe is packed full of essential nutrients and is one of the most beneficial treats you can give your dog or cat.
What is Tripe?
Green tripe is the untreated contents of a grazing animals stomach or intestines. This food is highly nutritious, containing plenty of enzymes, good bacteria, and nutrients that are excellent for your pets health. Its also a very natural part of both dogs and cats ancestral diets.
Green tripe is called green because it has been untouched by bleaching or treating. In other words it is totally natural. It may be lightly rinsed in water. The colouring comes from what the animal eats as its main diet. IE. grass
Nutritional Information & Benefits of Raw Green Tripe
Green Tripe is high in protein. 70% of this protein has 7 amino acids, which perform essential functions in your pets body, including building muscle and enhancing all system functioning from immune response to tissue repair to urinary tract health.
Raw Green Tripe contains high amounts of lactobacillus acidophilus, a healthy probiotic. Probiotics keep bad bacteria from overtaking your pets digestive system and making your pet sick. Acidophilus is naturally found in animal intestines, including your own and your dog or cats. By including acidophilus in your pets diet, you increase the amount of good bacteria that lives within your pets digestive system, promoting healthy digestion and optimal nutrient absorption.
Tripe contains digestive enzymes.
Natural enzymes aid the digestive process by facilitating the breakdown of food into nutrients. The more digestive enzymes available, the more vitamins, minerals, and usable energy your pet will be able to receive from food.
Natural Vitamins and Minerals
Green Tripe also contains partially-digested greens (from what the animal has been eating), which unlock nutrients that may have been unavailable if your dog or cat simply ate the grass that the lamb (or other grazing animal) ate. Herbivores such as cows, goats, deer & sheep have different digestive enzymes in their bodies for digesting the things that they normally eat grasses, for instance. Your pet, primarily a carnivore, has different digestive enzymes for digesting raw meat, such as they would in the wild. By including partially digested roughage in your pets diet, you give them more usable nutrients for their system. These vitamins and minerals would be hard for them to get in any other way. This way they are easily absorbed by your pets body.
Calcium and Phosphorus
Green Tripe has a nearly perfect calcium to phosphorus ratio, as well as an optimal ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, making it nutritionally balanced. Green tripe is also acidic in pH, making it easier for your pet to digest, perfect for sensitive stomachs.
