In addition to the Carnivora Whole Animal Patties, they have a variety of supplemental foods to further individualize your dog or cat's diet.
Carnivora’s green tripe is amongst the most prized on the market. As expected it is smelly and green and our pets love the stuff even if we can’t stand the smell of it! Coming solely from grass fed animals, our green tripe is the entire second stomach or the omasum of the ruminant animal – contents and all. These unique stomachs of ruminants have four chambers which systematically break down grasses with a slew of digestive enzymes, gastric juices and amino acids. Also known as the “Bible”, this is still a prized food source of many cultures.
It has been found to have a desirable calcium to phosphorus ratio of 1:1. Green tripe's pH is acidic, the protein averages 18%, and the fat is approximately 12%. It also has the correct proportions of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Another beneficial component of raw green tripe is digestive enzymes and probiotics. Digestive enzymes and probiotics aid in digestion, saving body from expending so much energy when digesting a meal.
This means your dog gets the most nutritional benefit from his meals. Digestive enzymes also purify and cleanse the blood and remove toxins, parasites and fungus. They also improve metabolism, hormonal function and boost the immune system.
Every dog or cat should be evaluated and fed as an individual. Selecting foods based on your pet's age, life stage, living environment and level of activity aids in promoting optimal nutrition throughout life. Green tripe may be fed once a day, several times per week or not at all; fed alone or mixed with whole animal or beef offal patties.
