Is tripe considered a organ meat? How much should be fed? I have heard from a tablespoon a day, to a meal for a day, to most of the meal every day? I was told it has digestive enzymes and amino acids. Does it have any vitamins?
Looking forward to hearing your input!
Tripe is a muscle meat and is apparently extremely rich, so I would ease it in if I were you (that's just me though my dogs may be more sensitive than yours)I believe it is one of the best muscle meats you can feed making it very rich in vitamins and minerals =)
Raw fed since December 19th 2011

Tripe is considered muscle meat.
Try to find fresh sources. Try to find GRASSFED sources. If you feed tripe from a "regular" cow, you'll be feeding all the grains that we are trying to avoid in the first place.
I would also try to avoid the canned stuff.
I feed tripe when it's what I grab out of the freezer. I don't think there is a real minimum or maximum amount.
If you are lucky enough to find some fresh...WATCH OUT. The stink...oh my...the stink.
If you can incorporate it into the diet, I strongly recommend it.
I normally buy my tripe ground up. It's just alot easier to handle, and my dogs get alot of stuff that's not ground so I figure they can live with the ground tripe!
I can get the lid on the container on and off really fast :)

You know its funny to me it is not that bad smells like horse manure haha and I guess since I spend time picking that up everyday I am kinda used to it? Lol also while every raw feeder I talk to considers it muscle I can't help but wonder why we don't consider it organ. For the most part in raw an organ is something that secretes something into the body. For example we don't consider heart an organ because it contracts to pump blood but does not manufacture or secrete the blood. But tripe is stomach it secretes whole bunches of stomach acids and digestive juices so why don't we consider it an organ? Just saying lol
