As I've never found a convenient source where I didn't have to buy multiple lbs. at one time I use the Triplett canned tripe. Funny thing is my year old won't come near it and my 15 year old can't get enough of it. I feed it sporattically, but it is one of natures best foods. Don't get the kind in the store that is white. It is not what you are looking for.

I bought pre made patties, feed it still frozen. That's the only way that nasty stuff is being eaten in my house!

Ok I finally did it for xmas! Got a 2lb chubb for $7. ouch.

Pup loved it...smells like manure lol. Like when you drive by the cows on the i5 freeway...

I cut up the cubes and fed it frozen making sure she chewed it up. When it melts that's when you really smell it.

Haven't fed enough to see if I notice any difference in her though.

I get a really good deal on mine, and only pay 35 cents per pound. Most people pay a lot more though. When I go get my dogs' food, I go buy a few hundred pounds of assorted things. I buy chicken in the grocery store, and the venison comes from hunting. I have a freezer that I bought just for the dogs' food.

You should see if there are any raw feeding groups in your area. They might be able to help you find a good source.

We just bought a small box of freeze dried green tripe for use as treats. Wow, did that make them sit up and pay attention! Better than freeze-dried chicken livers and I thought they loved those. But we do like to keep the lid on the box.

Shoot, if I could get it for TWICE that price I'd be willing to put up with the smell much more willingly!

I just paid 65 cents per pound for it to be packaged into 1lb chubs, which I find well worth it, since it is so much easier to grab a frozen package out of the freezer open it, and give it to the dog. This was the first time I have done the 1lb chubs, vs the 10lb blocks. The deals I get are well worth the 1.5 hour drive to get it!

If I want to feed the green tripe as a meal (65lb dog), how much is ok to feed? 1 cup? 1 lb?
