|Hey guys! If this question does exists already, please feel free to delete it (I didn't find anything right off the bat (6 or 7 pages down) for the answer though).
How often should you feed green tripe and how much? I'm getting a meat grinder in 2 weeks so I can blend food together to save TIME. Hippo has broken his large molar in half (which then had to be removed), another dog that I take care of rarely chews (grind) his food and chokes very easily. In other words, he's a gulper and has choked on the dumbest things and you gotta remove what's stuck via various methods. I've had to buy him a special feeding bowl for him (so no whole bones for him either).
So the grinder will grind the bones up and then I don't have to give supplements and spend hours butchering a weeks worth of meat. Grinder, grinder, done! I'll be getting a large freezer at the same time. Since I go down to Gilroy, Ca often, GreenTripe.com is a hop away. I'll be buying a case of tripe from them as well as their beef organ blend.
My question is, how often do you feed tripe, and how much at a time? Can I just put a certain percentage in with their blend daily? Or is this a once a week thing?
Here's how much my dogs weigh:
HIppo (akita/rottie mix) currently doing great on 1.3 %: 115 lbs, Age: 8
Kody (Alaskan malamute) currently doing great on 1.3%: 105 lbs, Age: 7 or 8
Nibbles (pit bull): on 1.8%: 50 lbs, Age: 2.5
