Dehydrated beef trachea
Dehydrated beef trachea from Raw Feeding UAE is Aria’s “absolute favourite.” Beef trachea filled with green tripe is “just as yummy,” her human added. Rich in chondroitin and glucosamine beef trachea is good for joints. It’s also low fat and helps is scraping plaque off the dog’s teeth. While green tripe rich in digestive enzymes and Omega 3 & 6 is considered a superfood for dogs especially those with gut issues.
