Our Grass-Fed Beef Heart and Green Tripe Treats are a healthy and high value treat for most dogs. These treats are a great way to show your pup how much you care about their health. Plus, it doesn't smell as bad as green tripe by itself.
Grass Fed Beef Heart
Beef Heart is a valuable source of Coenzyme Q10 and Taurine. While neither is technically an essential nutrient, both are slowly being recognized for their health promoting benefits, and not just for the heart.
Beef Green Tripe
Green tripe is the unbleached nutrient-rich stomach lining of an animal. It has a very distinctive smell that most humans find appalling, but dogs love tempting even the pickiest of eaters making it a high value treat for most dogs.
Nutritionally Tripe unlike most other meats, has a relatively balanced Calcium to Phosphorous ratio. While Tripe is a valuable source of essential amino acids, Tripe is a valuable source of technically non-essential amino acids, namely Glutamic Acid, Proline, and Glycine. While these amino acids aren't considered essential, they do play important roles in gut health.
Both Beef Heart and Green Tripe are valuable sources of Choline.
Choline is vital as it supports healthy brain and liver function.
The need for choline was discovered accidentally as researchers were researching insulin and discovered that lecithin prevented fatty liver in dogs.
Choline is vitamin like essential nutrient, that having reviewed the nutrient profiles of many dog foods, we have found to be on the lower end. Meaning most dogs are actually consuming a choline deficient diet.
