Tripe is the stomach lining from the first 3 of the 4 “stomachs” of ruminant animals, such as cows, sheep or goats. Sounds appetizing, right? Tripe has been consumed by many cultures all over the world for thousands of years and is still used in some notable dishes such as Menudo Soup.
The tripe used in human cuisine is processed and bleached to remove the plant matter and digestive juices that might remain. Green Tripe, only used for animal food, has not been highly processed or bleached, leaving much of the nutritional benefits intact.
Green Tripe has multiple nutritional benefits. Beyond being an excellent protein and omega fatty acid source, the partially digested plant matter that may remain is a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and substances such as chlorophyll. Raw green tripe is an excellent source of probiotics and digestive enzymes.
In the early 2000’s, Solid Gold Pet discovered the miraculous green tripe and launched our Green Cow Tripe canned dog food, a complete and balanced dog food containing 95% green tripe.
Green Cow Tripe is excellent for dogs that may be experiencing digestive upset due to stress and is frequently used to help working dogs, show dogs, competition dogs and other dogs that may be experiencing digestive upset due to stress or excitement.
Green Cow Tripe is extremely palatable. Even the pickiest of dogs have trouble ignoring the smell and taste of Green Cow! Green tripe is also naturally very low in certain minerals like phosphorus. That, coupled with its extremely high palatability has made it incredibly helpful for many pet parents with dogs suffering from renal dysfunction/disease. Under Veterinarian supervision, Green Cow Tripe has helped countless dogs increase their appetite which in turn can help improve their energy and overall quality of life.
