    DefaultJust finished portioning out Henery's tripe...

    THANK YOU KATE!!!!! (and thank you Dana for giving Kate the contact!!!!)

    It was still half frozen, so not too smelly... and kinda reminded me of a green shag carpet. :vomit:

    I gave Hen a little piece of it which he gobbled down and then waited for more. LOL!

    Thanks again Kate!!

    Question for you henrysmom...in the other thread you said you have Henry on homecooked...do you cook the tripe as well? Or do you feed it raw? Gauge is on homecooked do to GI issues too, and I have tripe in my freezer that I haven't given him. Just wondering what you do....I couldn't imagine the smell of cooking tripe...LOL :no:

    Tia, I'm going to give it to him raw, but only a few ounces a few times a week. He has had tripe before, the ground stuff, never whole. I'll see how he does with it raw.. I could always cook it :vomit: if I had to. But I think that would ruin what makes tripe so great, you know?

    No problem!!

    The portioning part is by far the worst part of feeding raw, I'd say. Blech! :vomit: It's nice when it's done for awhile though, and you don't have to worry about it.

    Hope he does OK! I think I read somewhere that tripe is good for GI issues, as it has all sorts of beneficial bacteria and what not. But I guess time will tell!

    Okay, so he's been eating it raw for the past few days and no problems whatsoever. I'm starting by giving him a bit (4oz) each time and he gobbles that it up first over everything else.

    Often if a dog has stomach issues or intestinal issues it does help. For whatever reason. Feed it raw. Gee, it smells bad enough raw, I cannot imagine cooking it! :vomit:
