    It is very high in protein and a good source of fat.

    I agree with this, it 'stinks' though that's the only trouble:D:D
    I buy a bag of frozen tripe pieces from Pets at Home, I think its prize Choice but not sure. Its ideal for my little bitch as its in strips so I cut it into smaller pieces for her to chew, good exercises for the jaws:)

    Yes it is good for them and they can have it from small pups. Dogs love tripe.
    I store mine outside though cause it really stinks!:(

    I think tripe is the best food for Bull breed dogs :cool:
    Excellent to build muscle tone etc etc
    The only trouble with tripe is that once they have been on it ,they will eat little else !
    None of my dogs would eat dry food alone now!
    They are tripe dogs as they say!:D

    Goodness, this brings back some memory's. Years ago, we used to feed our first two GSD's on tripe, and I agree with Mary, the smell was absolutely disgusting. Our dogs really loved it however, and I note that the tripe of today smells somewhat better (well, a bit anyway). Goodness, I'm showing my age now x :D
