MUTT’S NEW: K9 Natural Tripe – What is it?!

Have you ever heard of tripe? We hadn’t either until our friends at K9 Natural introduced it to us. Tripe is the stomach lining of grazing animals (including lamb and beef) and is loaded with digestive enzymes, gastric juices, amino acids and natural probiotics. It may not sound appetizing to us, but dogs sure love tripe!

 

Whether you feed your dog Freeze Dried Raw Lamb Tripe SuperFood or sprinkle the Beef Tripe Food Topper over kibble, your pooch will reap all the benefits of tripe. Tripe improves metabolism, removes toxins, boosts the immune system, cleans teeth and aids development of bones, teeth and muscle. Because it’s so highly palatable and improves your dog’s health, it’s great for picky dogs, dogs with stomach or skin issues, dogs currently eating raw or are in the process of transitioning. Tripe is described as nature’s “super food” and we couldn’t agree more! Want to test out lamb tripe for yourself? Stop by our stores in Solana Beach and La Jolla or search “K9 Natural” on our website to learn more!

Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried dinner patties provide 100% complete and balanced nutrition. Each flavor is made with raw meat, poultry or fish that is sourced from USDA-inspected facilities, mixed with organic fruits and vegetables included. Healthful, direct-fed microorganisms (probiotics), natural tocopherols, chelated trace minerals, taurine, and essential FreezeDFamily_RGBvitamins and minerals are also added to this yummy mix. These patties come in 8 different flavors: Chicken & Veggies, Beef, Lamb, Duck, Surf ‘N Turf, Rabbit, Venison and Pheasant and are grain-free with no fillers, artificial preservatives, colorings, added hormones, antibiotics, sugar or salt. Not only is this a great meal for your pup, but you can break up a patty and make it a nice yummy treat!

The savings don’t stop there! During October, you’ll also be able to save 20% on Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried treats, Carnivore Crunch and Carnivore Kisses. The Carnivore Crunch treats are all-natural formed morsels while the Carnivore Kisses are diced, 100% meat treats. These treats can berIMG_0095 given to your pup as a training reward or crumbled over food for added flavor – nothing beats that! The Carnivore Crunch treats come in Beef, Chicken, Turkey, Salmon/Cod and Duck flavors. The Carnivore Kisses treats come in Beef, Chicken, Salmon and Duck. Just like the freeze-dried food, these treats provide the benefits of raw with the convenience of being dry.

So what does freeze-drying exactly mean, you ask? Freeze-drying is a process that enables food manufacturers to remove the moisture from their products while retaining nutritional value. There is no cooking is involved in this process, as the product is frozen and then put into a freeze dryer on rIMG_4439trays. These trays are placed on shelves that receive very low levels of heat. Powerful pumps inside the freeze dryer generate very cold temperatures and create a vacuum, and that heat applied to the shelves causes the ice within the meat to turn directly into water vapor, skipping the liquid stage altogether. This takes the product from frozen to freeze-dried without ever being thawed or cooked, which is why the nutritional value is retained.

You don’t want to miss out on this delicious and nutritious Treat of the Month! This special runs from October 1st through October 31st at all three of our stores and online. Use code STELLA20 at checkout to save!
