Default Frozen tripe PAH

Can you feed your lab tripe as a treat along side their normal food or do you have to change to a raw diet/home cooked?

I fed both in a day but not at the same time when Griffin was younger.

Warning - it stinks! Even Coco turned her nose up at it.

I say yes. You do hear folk saying you shouldn't mix raw and kibble as they digest at different rates, but personally I don't see the issue with that?

My boy is fully raw fed and loves his tripe, along with the rest. So give it a go, but as already mentioned, get ready for the smell! You do get used to it over time though, doesn't bother me anymore!

I see no issues as long as its a good quality kibble.
I can understand the digesting at different times part, but this is only the case if the dry food is packed with cereals and fillers that are difficult to digest!

I've probably confused people - I don't want to fed the tripe with his kibble but just as an extra food alternative days to help him put some weight on

He's been on chappie and kibble but due to some health problems this year he's lost a lot of weight being on chappie so thought some tripe might help?

Thanks

I think it needs to be in addition to his normal food not in place of it. Tripe has a high water content so doesn't have great nutritional content. Probably just not in the same dish at the same time.

Any raw meat has a high water content, as it's not been processed and had it all removed. Tripe does have a good fat content, lamb even more so than beef if I recall correctly, so good for fattening your boy up! If you're trying to increase weight then you'd be looking to feed about 3% of his current bodyweight per day, eg if he's 30Kg then 900g per day split into 2 meals if you feed twice a day.

The other claimed benefits of tripe are probiotics, along the lines of natural yoghurt and full of good bacteria.
