    Tripe would it be ok to feed it on its as most of the time after my dogs have ate the tripe out of the bowl they leave most of the dry food ! and don't tell me to mix it in more as there tongues are aw some at separating both!

    Just stick with the tripe then lol.
    Maybe in the future try the dry food again in the morning time and continue with the tripe in the evening, They may well think they are getting a treat and eat it all in the morning time's :D
    Our dogs sure know what they want huh :D.

    When one of mine did the same - I put his dried dog food in a plastic bag - got a hammer and smashed it to powder and mixed it in with the tripe - I gradually only smashed it up to small lumps and eventually he ate with the whole dried food - give it a try......they cannot pick tripe out of powder LOL

    they will eat anything ! But just dont make to much of a fuse over the dry food! so i am thinking of droping it and giving them more tripe instead!

    I have huge resovations about feeding tripe alone - dogs need their dried food for the nutrition - I have seen dogs fed on tripe alone and they lack bone etc yes it may put the weight on but it doesnt give a balanced diet.

    I would'nt feed tripe on its own as it does not contain everything a dog needs, have you tried soaking the dry food in a little water first to soften it (this worked for my border collie) or you could try coating it in a little gravy they love it (not too much though, dont want a tubby pooch or diarhorrea:D)

    Do you buy the tripe fresh from a butcher? or frozen? and how do you cook it...cos my mom used to cook it in milk :rolleyes: but that's no good for dogs :confused: is it expensive?
