tripe: it’s not just for cows anymore…

tripe, it’s what’s for dinner, not…

I had heard about Dr. Harvey’s dog food and we just received a few samples… Cici was very excited… and could not wait for me to rip the package open and give her a treat… although she already ate breakfast, a kangaroo treat in her kong, and a couple strips of turkey bacon… I deliberated and decided I would give her one little Power Pattie, which looked small and harmless… hah!  she has been barking at me ever since and whining to give her more more and more… I finally gave in and gave her another one… boy, did she gobble it up… (and she is usually not that into treats so much)… 

 

I had not read what tripe is, sounds kinda yucko to my human sensibilities, Beef tripe is usually made from only the first three of a cow‘s four stomach chambers, doesn’t that sound yummy, ugh, but I would say that the proof is in the woofs and tail wagging ! 

 

the warning is absolutely true… 

  • WARNING: Dogs and Cats love Power Patties so much that they are apt to steal the whole bag. Power Patties should be placed in a carefully chosen and concealed place. Dr. Harvey’s will not be responsible for stolen or captured Power Patties. Also, please be aware that giving Power Patties may result in overwhelming amounts of joy and kisses. Now you can’t say we didn’t warn you!

Cici also taste tested the Veg-to-bowl food.  You soup it up and add it to the regular dog food… she slurped it up along with her dry food… left some in the bowl and came back to it later… guess she was a little full from being a little piggy all day…   it is great to know that she is getting some veggies, because she doesn’t like to eat them raw or otherwise usually… 

Here are the ingredients: 

  Sweet Potatoes*, Carrots*, Diced Potatoes*, Zucchini*, Broccoli Florets*, Green Beans*, Peas**, Beets*, Parsley, Fennel Seed, Fenugreek Seed, Garlic, Ginger, Papaya Leaf and Peppermint Leaf 

* Dehydrated ** Freeze Dried

And there is a healing and first aid cream, to put on her skin, too… she sure needs that… 

 

would love to try the canine herbal tea and bee pollen and have a tea party with Cici and some doggie friends one of these days…

 

also have some parrot food and kitty cat treats… those will be given away to some lucky birds and cats… 

All in all, Cici and I give a tail wagging woof woof FOUR PAWS UP to Dr. Harvey’s, K9 approved dog food and treats…
