Rated 1 out of 5 by Billiesmom Used to be great but are now large, rock hard chunks.
When I first started giving my dog these treats they were at the top of her preference list and for me they worked great because I was able to cut the one inch dehydrated cubes into smaller training bits that did not crumble. Yet somewhere along the way, Evanger's changed the product. The ones that are now available are large pieces that are so rock hard that they are impossible to break by hand or even cut with a chef's knife and the pieces are way too big to serve singly during training. Someone needs to tell Evanger's not to leave the tripe strips in the dehydrator until they become stones. Sadly, I will not repurchase them as they are unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Airemargie even elderly fussy eater loves it
These tripe treats are stinky, like a barnyard. But my elderly Airedale loves them and has a couple as a treat every day. She's gotten so fussy that I have trouble keeping weight on her, but she always gobbles these down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bbxb Mixed feelings about this one
I tried to avoid the scrabble for treats between my four cats and my dog so I went for cross-species treats. My dog loves them but the chunks are simply too big for a cat and due to the unique smell of tripe, crushing the treats is not very pleasant. Pieces are also very hard and difficult to break into smaller chunks for the cats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shelley good but not priced well
the 3 dogs, with widely different food preferences, all LOVE this stuff...it's good for them...but it gets really pricey really fast...judge accordingly...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maxshowdog Hard to handle
I've fed my dogs lots of tripe treats and, of course, they like them. These are dried, not freeze dried, and are just hard to give to the dogs because they leave an awful smell on my hands. It looks like they have a lot of fat on them but I'm not sure if it is fat or not. I don't think I'll buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magg Great, wholesome treat for allergy sufferers!
My two dogs are severe allergy sufferers and they love these treats, as well as many other freeze-dried treats by Evangers. They are more expensive than the mainline store brands, but you can see exactly what you are getting and, as importantly, what you are not! No additives of any kind, no cooking to extreme temps to cook all flavor and nutrition out of the ingredients. Also, high quality ingredients, freeze-dried and flavorful. My pups are johnny-on-the-spot, when they hear me reach for this treat and other Evangers freeze-dried varieties. Grain free, gluten free and additive free. And, for my allergy sufferers, the only ingredient is beef tripe. Also the nutritional values for this treat are outstanding: Protein, min 40%; fat, min 25%; fiber, max 1% and moisture, max 9%.
Sensitive stomachs or not, these and other Evangers freeze-dried treats are an awesome, nutritious option that redefines the word, "treat" !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rie1 It did get my dog to eat for a while.
I bought this because my dog is a very picky eater. She's getting older, and even more picky. She has lost some weight.
I have had her to the vet, and had a full work up done on her...she's fine.
The Tripe worked for a while, and I was happy. Now she's back to being picky. I'm going to try to rotate things for her so she doesn't get tired of things.
If anybody has any other ideas on how to get a dog to eat more, I'd love to hear them! I've tried just about everything.

The tripe is sort of 'moist' and small pieces. Dogs enjoyed them.
