They will love you for it and it is SOOOOoooooo good for them. Two of my gang can't handle the beef. Happily there is is lamb available (it's $2.79 a can). I buy the frozen stuff too but, based on stink factor alone, I think this is better.

Green tripe is raw unprocessed stomach. White tripe is what you find in stores. Its bleached and cleaned for human consumption. You don't want that for the dogs. You want the green raw tripe.

Ok, that now I get it. They don't sell tripe at any of the grocery stores around here so I have never actually seen it. I have a friend that regularly butchers his own goats and sheep and has his steers sent out to butcher. They are all pretty much free range animals. if I feed tripe from him would I have to do anything to it before I feed it? Part of me says I should rinse it first but I have also read where the gut and its contents are actually healthy for the dogs and cats

I have been curious but have never entered the realm of tripe.

What does smelly mean - like, am I going to toss my cookies or what? Cause I won't try it if that's the case?

In my mind stomach must smell like digestive juices which is a cross between vomit and poo. Is this the smell we are talking about?

Oh believe me I am an old hand at bad smells. I used to work on a dairy farm and let me tell you there is something about the smell of afterbirth in a cow who hasen't cleaned out that will either cure the worst hangover or make you wretch so hard it feels like your eyes will pop out. )

sounds like I should bring my boys down there for butcher day and have them eat it outside

Wanda, from my experience butcher/cleaning "game" it is like poop and vomit all rolled into one add a dash of fishy-acidy smelling stuff (bile always smells sorta fishy to me) and than amplify it. the smell is VERY strong in a gut. Canned tripe might not smell as strong. I am not sure since I have never seen or used it before)

I can't say how the raw kind smells, but the canned type smells like the kind of smell where as soon as it hits your scent areas, you immediately start to breathe out very quickly, trying to void your senses of this horrid smell. Kind of like cow patties... rotten cow patties.. rotten cow patties mixed with nasty smells.

lol! What a funny thread
I agree with everyone's description....to me it also has a touch of rotten egg smell added to the cow pie patty but the goes crazy for it so I tolerate it. In a scary way I've actually gotten used to the smell and it doesn't really bother me anymore.

ok,if you get a whole stomach, chances are its already been emptied. If not, cut it open, and rinse out the inside then feed. Yor pup wont be interested in the contents, and will just leave a mess. Or you can feed whole thing and let the pup rip it open and shake out the contents.

My dogs love green tripe as well, and from what I've heard, most dogs go crazy for it. This is so surprising considering how horrid the stuff smells, and the fact that a dogs sense of smell is about a gazillion times better than ours.... The best thing I find about feeding green tripe is chasing the kids around the house with the opened can! Good times.
