Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea...GO Pepto Bismol. WAIT. This is for pups, not humans. Redo: Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea...GO Green Tripe!

Green tripe is an especially gentle food. It is the most natural food you can feed your dog. With vitamins and amino acids to spare, green tripe is full of the nutrients that boost your dog’s natural energy. Described as a well known secret among top breeders of performance dogs, green tripe is slowly beginning to gain the recognition it deserves among dog owners.

So what exactly are we talking about? Tripe is the stomach lining of ruminating (grazing) animals such as cattle, deer, sheep and goats. Remember learning about the four chambers of these animals’ stomachs on a field trip in grade school? Those four chambers consistently break down food with a mix of digestive enzymes, gastric juices, and amino acids. Delicious!

We know with that introduction, some of you are probably cringing in your chair. But it’s important to understand that the same digestive enzymes and bacteria that help the animal digest his food will do the same for your dog! Digestive enzymes are important because they help the body digest food, with as little energy used as possible. The less energy required to digest food, the more nutritional benefit your dog gets out of it.

Digestive enzymes also do far more than help with digestion. In a helpful article, Dogs Naturally Magazine explains that these enzymes purify and cleanse the blood and help to remove toxins and parasites. They also improve metabolism, hormonal function, and boost the immune system. Because of its impressive resume of benefits, we’re excited to introduce Evanger's 100% Whole Meat Freeze Dried Beef Tripe Treats. This treat boasts of the long list of benefits green tripe has to offer, which make it hard to ignore this product, even if we do wrinkle our noses a bit. Trust us, Fido won’t.
