Feeding Green Tripe
Q: How much should I feed?
A: How much to feed each dog depends upon their age, activity level and individual dog's metabolism. A good starting point is 2 - 3% of the dog's healthy body weight fed each day. For a 50 pound dog that would equate to about 1 to 1-1/2 pounds per day.
Growing pups often do well when offered 2% of their projected adult weight fed each day...with young pups this amount would be divided into 2 or more smaller meals each day.
Q: Why is green tripe so beneficial for dogs in Kidney Renal Failure?
A: In addition to having easily digested nutrients and probiotics, other important factors for dogs like yours are the phosphorous level is low, the calcium: phosphorous ratio is 1:1 and the high moisture content provides proper hydration of internal organs.
Another thing to consider is that all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc. are in their natural state...nothing synthetic or processed.
In this natural form, everything is easier for the dog's body to absorb and utilize. It is also very helpful that dogs are naturally attracted to the flavor and smell of green tripe. When dogs don't feel well, they have less interest in eating, so it is great to find a food that is so beneficial and entices them to eat.

Q: How long can I keep a defrosted roll of green tripe in my refrigerator?
A: We recommend using the roll in 3 days from being placed in the refrigerator.
Q: What is the raw beef pancreas used for?
A: Pancreas is used for dogs with pancreatic issues (this is a totally different organ/body function than the kidney). The 100% raw beef pancreas is specifically for dogs/cats with EPI. Some customers have had success with using lower doses than the usual 2 oz. for every 20 lbs. of body weight twice per day for dogs with pancreatitis. It may help with diabetic dogs as well, but we do not have enough feedback on this yet as far as success and recommended amounts.
Healthy dogs and those with pancreatitis or diabetic issues might do well enough with the amount of pancreas in the Tripe/Organ Meat Blend.
