Afraid to open can of tripett!!!

So I got some Tripett for Sarge cuz I wanna be a good mommy and it has been suggested. He loves his new food Fromms and he is doing great with the poop. As suggested I also give him digestive enzymes and pumpkin on occasion. This has been great. I want to add Tripett but dont no what to do. Do I mix with kibble or serve by itself? and how much? If anyone wants to give me some (more) advice, I would appreciate it. I am def not ready for BARF.

I think 1/3 of a can is the recommended amount if I remember correctly but I may be wrong. I just add about 1 tbsp per bowl so one can lasts a week for both dogs, once open it's kept in the fridge with a lid.

I mix it with the kibble, I add warm water to the kibble so it gets warmed that way, but you can put the portion in the microwave for 10 seconds to get the same effect if you want. I've fed it cold to and the dogs don't mind but they prefer it warmed lol

I don't know if I've really become immune to the smell but it doesn't bother me as much as it used to

Cue the eerie music as you're opening the can Yes it does NOT smell nice, but the drooling dog sitting at your feet will convince you it's worth it

That would be a big "yup" it stinks. We have gotten sort of used to the unique smell of green tripe, if that's possible. You will need to wash out the feeding bowl as soon as mealtime is over. And, as mentioned, keep any remaining portions "tightly" sealed in the frig. Feeding outside isn't necessary if you don't have means. They eat it up so fast the smell doesn't linger.
Your dog is going to love you extra special once you feed green tripe.

LOLOLOL been there. Yes, it's stinky, but amazingly enough I finally got used to the smell. I put about a tablespoon in with the kibble, with a teeny bit of water to mix it up.

LOL it's very smelly. I just mix it with Berlins kibble. He likes it and it's a tad (in gross factor) better than raw green tripe.

Thanks everyone for the advice, and the laughs. It kept me from crying from the smell. He LOVED it of course, so yes, worth it. I just didnt feel like any "kisses" for awhile. And yes, it stinks like death.
