Red meats are the most nutritious, but are also the richest. So as long as you go slow it should be fine.

The main argument against beef as a primary is that few beef bones are usable as RMBs. They're simply too big and too dense to be consumed easily by most dogs. Most have to balance them to a rmb from chicken like wings, or backs - which isn't bad. Variety is good.

The main thing I like about beef as a primary is that it's really easy to have an idea/control of your fat content and food amounts in cheap ground beef.

I would encourage you to not use bison as a "variety" item. Most bison meat on the market is at best 75% beefalo and at worst fraudulently labeled beef-meaning you'd be paying so much more for essentially the same protein. Instead I would encourage something unmistakable as the animal labeled like whole smelt or herring, pork, mutton, venison, rabbit, chicken, or goat.

There is so much fraud in butchering and fish sales even from what should be reputable sources.

I wish I could feed more red meat, but I can't seem to find a good, reasonably priced source. Sawyer definitely does better on a beef/rabbit rotation, but boy howdy does he love his chicken and turkey!

Now about Tripe, how do you all feed it? As a meal? How many times a week?

The mixture I'm getting comes with Tripe but I'm also going to get a 30 pound box of pure Tripe and was thinking of maybe having a meal a week of it.

Abe gets tripe twice a week as a meal. He LOVES it but I HATE the smell.

I feed it frozen sometimes if I forget to take any from the freezer other wise it just tip it out the bag into the bowl.

Is it a 30lb box of green tripe or food grade tripe?

Thanks!

My plan is to feed it frozen, it should get here partially defrosted and I'm going to portion it out so I don't have to deal with it later.

This is wrong on so many levels... If I knew you weren't a spammer I would tell you to spend 5 minutes searching google about raw food for dogs but since you are there really is no point.
