I've never seen such a thing...but ewwww...they sound nasty! ;) I'm sure the dogs would love them, but I don't know if they're okay or not!

Wow...I'm sure helpful! :crazy:

If it is green tripe - it is EXCELLENT for dogs. Serves as organ meat.

Come on, people... I stil have the pound of frozen beef intestines but I don't know if they're ok to feed. They're sold for people food but I don't know if they've been cleaned or if they need to be.... I was thinking I could boil them if they're 'too scary' to feed raw. I need the freezer space and would like the variety ... should I feed them? Should I boil them?

if they are for humans, it will be white and smooth textured and probably doesn't smell much.

Green tripe is lumpy, smells gross, and is gray-ish green-ish. Green tripe is NOT sold for human consumption.

Either kind of tripe is ok for them, but the green is much better nutritionally. Leave them both raw.

I think their main use is for sausage casings so they will be clean but it wont hurt to feed them.

Yeah - I was trying to figure out what 'dish' they were for and wondered if it was just for sausage casings. I just watch the sales and try different stuff but I couldn't quite get my head around intestines... . Ok, I'll thaw them for tonite and feed some. Thanks!

Ok ... they were NASTY!!! I fed 4 0z to each dog and tossed the rest - and I had 2.11 lbs of it not just a pound! :shock: Brown goo oozed out of them and they STANK but I wasn't convinced it was a good stank like in tripe. So, don't try this a home peepz - nasty stuff. No diarrhea or funny poopz but hardly slept that nite in fear of it.
