Hi Di

Tripe sticks are supposed to be good for dogs, but I don't know how many calories are in them either.

It may be worth emailing a website that sells them to find out.

I'd be interested to know too.

well from what i can make out, and some please correct me if im wrong, tripe is 91cals per 100gms, tripe sticks are dried tripe meat, and 100gms in a pack, 10 sticks (average) = 9 cals per stick. (I think)

Murphy loves them and Bully sticks too. That sounds like a low cal snack anyway - I have to give them these when OH is not around, as he can't bear the smell:eek:.

He thought the bully sticks were tripe too. They are a bit smelly, but that's part of the attraction I guess. I just love to see them having a good chew and they are so intent with them aren't they?
