But before we get into all the benefits let’s mention the elephant in the room or in this case, the cow. The only real downside of tripe – if you can call it that, is the aroma.
The rumours of how bad green tripe smells are not an exaggeration, honestly it smells like a barn, but your furry family member will think it’s the most exciting thing you’ve ever put in their bowl! While some pet parents learn to hold their breath and others get accustomed to the scent, everyone loves it for the reason that it keeps our pets healthy and promotes longevity.
Furchild’s Green Tripe is raw, unprocessed stomach lining of a cow. Grazing animals such as cow feed on grass that is broken down and stored in a cow’s unique four-chambered stomach. There it is mixed with digestive enzymes, gastric juices, amino acids and lots of other nutritious goodies that will make your dog’s and cat’s health thrive.
It is called “green” tripe not so much for its color, but for the fact that it has not been processed for human consumption.
Green Tripe is a part of a species appropriate diet. It is a supplemental food, low in fat, high in essential fatty acids (both linoleic and linolenic in their recommended proportions), a great source of potassium, vitamins, magnesium, probiotics and contains a calcium-phosphorus ratio of 1:1, which is considered ideal for proper bone and joint development and sustainability.
At Furchild Pet Nutrition, we have sourced the very best quality tripe known to dog and man, flown in all the way from California, USA. Furchild’s Green Tripe is a mixture of organic and grass-raised cattle – nothing else compares!
“Green tripe has many health benefits. It helps with digestion. Its rubbery texture strengthens the jaw muscles and it’s basically canine dental floss.”
The IVC Journal says about green tripe…
“Tripe has always been a very important component of the carnivore’s diet. Though most humans regard it as unusual, raw green tripe is a natural and beneficial food.”

Yes of course, and we have been doing it for thousands of years. See how world renowned chef Gordon Ramsey is helping modern generations enjoy the benefits and taste of processed tripe across England.

Green tripe is really easy to feed because even finicky eaters love the taste. We recommend our Green Tripe to be fed as a replacement meal once a week, or added to your pet’s meals a few days a week using Furchild’s Non-Skid, Stainless Steel Pet Bowls or Cat Dishes.
