24th October is World Tripe Day, and we’re spreading the word about all the naturally nutritious benefits of feeding your dog Butcher’s Tripe. But you don’t need to let your dog in on the secret – dogs have been loving tripe for centuries!
In the wild, dogs would have hunted for their food, and gobbled up the most nutritious parts of the animal first before anybody else could get their paws on it. That would be parts like tripe and other nutrient-rich parts of the animal – such as the kidney and liver. Not so long ago, tripe was part of our staple diet, but things have changed. Nowadays, we’re more likely to prefer a fillet steak on the menu!
Tripe may not sound very appealing to us, but it’s packed with nutrients like protein, calcium, all-important vitamins, and essential omega oils. We only use natural green tripe, never bleached – that’s green from all the grass the cows have been eating!
So, how can you get more tripe into your dog’s diet for World Tripe Day and beyond? Butcher’s food for dogs is specially made by our dog nutrition experts to include the tasty ingredients your dog would naturally choose in the wild, like green tripe, in a range of different recipes. You can trust that we know more than a thing or two about meat here at Butcher’s – it’s in our name for a reason.
If you’re thinking of switching to Butcher’s Tripe this World Tripe Day, don’t forget to introduce any new food gradually. Start with 25% new food and 75% old food in their bowl, then slowly increase the amount of new food over about four days.
There are two varieties of Butcher’s Tripe that you can buy in shops all over the UK:
– Tripe Mix – This iconic mix was first made in 1987 and the recipe hasn’t changed! It’s the number one best-selling single can of dog food in the UK*
– Tripe Loaf Recipes – available in 6, 12 and 18 packs, these contain a variety of delicious tripe recipes
If your dog is already a big fan of Butcher’s Tripe, we’d love to hear from you. Head to our Facebook, Instagram, or get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
