I ordered a bag of Vital Essentials freeze dried tripe treats when I was on Amazon last. To say they’re a hit would be an understatement. I now have a Xtra Large Greyhound following me everywhere, whining , & being a pain in the a**_ looking for another one. I think I’m going to have to stock up.
My dogs LOVE all the VE freeze dried flavors!!
FreeholdHound- you made me LOL! That’s good to know. I’m always looking for good treats. My Dane, Max, loves the Orijen and Stella & Chewy freeze-dried treats. I will try the Vital Essentials next! Is that your greyhound in your avatar?
RescueDaneMom- yep that’s my boy Raced as RC Danger but as he’s such a dufus he’s now called Harry. I can see you truly have an XL model (gorgeous!!). Harry has become a tripe addict since I started partial raw feeding. At least the treats don’t stink to high hell as the raw tripe does.
FreeholdHound- Wow, he’s gorgeous! Mine is a dufus at times too, lol. Yes, Max is definitely an XL model. He’s 36″ at the shoulder and 155 lbs. I’d say he’s a pretty average size for a male Dane, maybe even on the smaller size. I’ve seen some truly XL Danes (200+ lbs). I’m doing partial raw as well. I haven’t tried raw tripe yet, just the canned tripe by Tripett. He loves it but boy it sure does stink. I can’t imagine how much worse the raw stuff probably smells. That’s good to know that the VE tripe treats don’t smell as bad. I bet Max would really like those. I’m definitely trying them next.
It may just be me, but I don’t think raw green tripe smells worse than canned. And I find the smell of the canned lingers in the house whereas the raw tripe is gone when it’s gone.
Heh, Harry loves them like mine do! Are you still feeding NL? I spent a couple hours yesterday, reading their blogs.
Mine like VE and Merrick tripe/liver patties too and also the tripe spring chews from ONP.

Patty- it’s been a while since I’ve used canned tripe but I think they probably smell the same. I think I’m immune to the stench now.
Marie- he did really well on the NL (both the beef & the sardine). He’s now on Earthborn Holistic GPF & doing even better on that. So that’s 2 brands I’ve found for him WHOOHOO! I tried the Back 2 Basics Pork in between but he wasn’t too thrilled with it even mixed w/the others. So I’m still in search of a 3rd food for rotation. But I feel good about the two and the raw.
YAY FREEHOLDHOUND!!! It sounds like you are getting somewhere with finding a rotation.
Jeanne, looks like you’ve found a couple foods! Regarding B2B, be careful. One of their lines are very low in calories
Yeah, I noticed that. The only one he could have was the pork & he definitely didn’t like it. Will keep searching for a 3rd.
