Tripe woes

hello everyone,
I CANNOT for the life of me find tripe anywhere around here.
Holistic vet has no idea what im talking about,
Pet stores trying to sell me dried trachea
Health food stores ask me to spell it then almost vomit on the phone when i say what it is.
Im at a loss here, where do all of you buy yours ????

Pm the place that it is purchased so i can see if anything like that place exists here, Both Sudbury and Northbay have had the same reactions.

And, if it is unavailable here ( which I susspect) what is a good alternative???

Signed frustrated erykah

Sorry, I can give you my supplier, but I doubt they ship that far. Hopefully some of the ontario crew can help

We buy frozen green lamb tripe from a company called Healthy Paws. Their website is http://www.tryhealthypaws.com. Click on the banner "Retailers" on the left side and then enter your postal code and see if there is one close to you. We live in Toronto and it's carried at various pet food stores throughout the city.

Hah, I live with an Italian and he buys his tripe at the butcher. I'd be toast if I tried to feed it to the dogs... Personally I'm at the thought of it too though. But the dogs would love it I'm sure. Good luck!

dogdancer, green tripe is not for human consumption and is not sold at butcher's.... humans eat the bleached, white, clean stuff only (well other humans, not ME!) LOL

I found plenty of white tripe while grocery shopping for the dogs today, but I remembered that that was not that right stuff.

Gotta keep looking.

Got some wiked deals today though, anyone looking for some good cheap meat for dogs try Food Basics! I wouldnt eat the meat there ( cause im super picky with my meats) but its great stuff for the dogs! Spent a good $80 and should be good for a while with that! ( plus what is stock piled already)
Man raw is fun!

The closest so far is Collingwood. Thats a tad ( 4 hours) out of my way...
Gonna have to call around and see what I can do.
Global Pet Foods is in Northbay but that sales person had no idea what i was talking about. I am going to try to call again tomorrow and see if there is anyway they can bring it in.
You can tell how unheard-of the raw diet is around here... even the petstores have no idea what I am talking about.

erykah if you can't find green tripe, don't fret... your furkids will never notice if you give them extra yummies so what did you get today for $80? (come on, make me jealous he he)

oh, the regular ground beef is 0.99/lbs at my neighborhood grocery store this week, yayyy! picked up 3 family packs today, will get more tomorrow to stock up (we mix it with Evo once in a while)

wow! i've never seen lamb so cheap, you are sooo lucky!! (insert green jealous man here). and also rabbits here are minimum $17 so i've never bought any... fussy beanies wouldn't like it anyways i'll bet

how come you have to pay taxes on food?

right now we're finishing up a bag of Evo RM, but once it's gone (that and the lot of Merrick's Puppy Dry), i don't think i'll buy anymore kibble... at the rate we're going we'll be feeding kibble until spring, LOL!

your lamb chunks look exactly like the goat chunks i get for maika... at $2.25/lbs though, she doesn't get them too often. you are sooo lucky!
