Butcher's tripe mix
Member Name: lauzpauz
Advantages: cheap, dogs seemed to enjoy it, not packed with preservatives and additives
I enjoy giving my pets a bit of variety, especially when it comes to meal times. So, with this in mind I try and buy one off tins (as and where I can). I recently brought a 400g tin of butchers tripe mix from my local home bargains store. I have had butchers before but not for a while, and to be honest the thing that tempted me was the £0.35pennce price tag (on offer).
The packaging is plain and simple. I picked up a celebrating 25 years (limited edition) tin, which is blue and white striped with a photo of a happy looking dog on it.
Contents wise, this tin was quite full. It is a pet hate of mine where you buy a tin and it only be half full, but this one was nearly 90% full. Appearance wise the wet food is quite bland in colour, it is a light brown/cream colour, which doesn't look very appetizing for me, but the dogs enjoyed it!
Ingredients wise each 400g tin contains vitamins A and Vitamins D3. There is no soya, ceral of preservatives in each tin, which it says on the back of the tin, and to be honest I prefer it. I find my dogs are a lot more calmer when they eat food that doesn't contain cereals and unnecessary preservatives.
Taste wise - It passed the taste test. The mix was consumed with pedigree dry mixer, and was gone before you even had time to blink - so it must be OK!
In terms of price, I feel I got it at a bargain price, however I have seen it retail for around £.050 pence which I feel is still good value for a good sized tin of dog food.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend and would feed to my dogs as a one off again. Not sure about regularly, or what long term benefits the dogs' gain, but in the short term it filled them up, kept them happy and gave them a change from the routine.
Summary: a well priced, good value for money, dog food that my dogs love to eat as a treat
