Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

Most tripe products have quite a strong odor, especially in heat. What sort of smell do these have?
Answer by ChewyJul 07, 2018
Overall, customers have not reported a strong odor with these treats however, smells are subjective to the individual. It is recommended to store freeze - dried products in a cool dark place, these are best if fed within 30 days after opening.

can this be used to supplement fresh or frozen tripe in a raw diet
Answer by ChewyOct 01, 2018
This product's only ingredient is tripe, so it could be used to substitute fresh or frozen tripe in your dog's raw diet.

Can you provide calcium and phosphorous mg per ounce of product, please?
Answer by ChewyDec 06, 2021
At this time, Vital Essentials does not test for calcium and phosphorous in their treats as they are not intended as a complete and balanced meal.

Love these!

Both my cat and my dog have limited diets, and Vital Essentials has tasty, single ingredient treats for both of them! The beef tripe treats and the perfect size for training, and they're considered mid-value treats by my dog (higher value than kibble, lower value than hot dog). And they're honestly pretty affordable!

Quality Control

This was my first time buying these treats, and my dog loved them. However, as I poured out some treats a safety pin fell out. Not sure what is going on with their quality control, but don’t want my dog swallowing harmful objects.

Must Buy!

I’ve been wanting to include raw green tripe in my dogs diet for digestion benefits but cannot locate any near me. I purchased this as a next best thing. At first my boy was hesitant to try it, but after he took his first bite he’s been hooked! I used it a couple times as a high value treat, but I primarily add a bit to his food as a nutritional boost. He has chronically struggled with tummy problems and not much has helped. This combined with raw goat milk has been a game changer for him!! If you’re thinking of trying, give it a shot!

Varying Quality - caused vomiting in several dogs

I have been buying vital essentials for my cats for several years with no issues, and when I got a dog, I got the pup vital essential treats. However in the last year, I noticed their quality has dropped for both cat and dog treats. The most recent 2 bags of fish treats had parasites and live bugs, and the 2 bags of meat treats had varying texture - one was a bit oily, and the other caused vomitting in 3 pups during training. Will never be buying vital essential treats ever again for any animal until there is some serious QC.

Blue Dye In These Treats

When I received these I thought there was mold on them. Green tripe is supposed to be GREEN but there were blue spots all over them. I contacted Vital Essentials and was told their old manufacturer added blue dyes so they have switched to a new manufacturer. DO NOT BUY!

The only dog treat you need! It's the best!

I have extremely picky dogs and puppies and Vital Essentials is all they will eat. I consider beef tripe essential for my dogs' diets and this is the only brand I get. If you could only buy one dog treat item for your dog, then it should be this. The ingredients are high quality, freeze dried and packed with nutrients. My vet noticed my dogs are looking healthy and their coat is extremely shiny after eating Vital Essentials. Highly recommend everyone to add these to your dog's diet. They also work as training treats. I have been buying these for years and will continue to do so. Definitely our favorite brand hands down! This is the best beef tripe compared to any other brand. I own a pet care business and I only buy and recommend Vital Essentials to my clients.
