What a treasure! Don't wash it out because you'll be flushing out the best things tripe has to offer. I get the whole tripe too and the butcher just shakes out most of the contents but NO RINSING!
I cut it up in pieces of about a pound each and let them have fun and freeze them in large pieces per meal. It usually takes them a while before they finish it, at least my dogs.
Bon appetit!

Thanks, will not rinse it. How big is whole tripe? Never saw whole thing. I will take also liver, kidney, heart, toungh and bones from that cow so now i'm bit worry if all fits in my freezer.

I guess it would fit in a ten gallon fish tank. It looks big but it is basically an empty "bag". Lucky you and lucky dogs. I have a special freezer for the raw dog food.

Thank you, that should fit, i have dog freezer (smaller than i would like) right now is half full. But i have to take it now, they can not wait. What else you would take from cow for your dog if you have chance? except meat for human, that they will keep.

Lucky you. See if you can get the lung also. My dogs love it. I've actually got 3 freezers now. :)
