Dog nutrition: feed rumen correctly

Have you ever considered feeding your dog with rumen? The beef stomach can be given as a healthy meal in normal feeding, but also fits into the menu if you barf your four-legged friend.

The rumen is the largest of the three forestomachs of cattle. It functions as a fermentation chamber in which the cellulose from the plant food is decomposed by microorganisms so that the cattle can digest and utilize grass, leaves, etc. more easily. Rumen is considered slaughterhouse waste and therefore rarely ends up on our table. But your dog sees it quite differently. For your four-legged companion, beef stomach can be a healthy delicacy – provided that you feed it properly.

So many good things in green rumen
When you feed your dog with rumen, you are providing him with important vitamins and nutrients. The rumen contains valuable vegetable residues and enzymes. Among other things, the innards provide your four-legged friend with vitamin A, vitamins of the B-complex, vitamin C, D and E, as well as numerous minerals and trace elements. Here is a listing of the nutritional values:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamins B1 to B12
  • Fluorine
  • iron
  • Copper
  • manganese
  • iodine
  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Sulfur
  • Phosphorus

Feeding rumen, but the right way
Rumen consists of the inner stomach lining, a muscle layer and the peritoneum of the cow. In some cases, the product is also offered ground. It is important that you feed your dog green rumen: this means that the stomach has not been washed, but still contains vegetable remains from the digestion of the cattle. Dogs are reluctant to eat washed white rumen or cooked pieces of rumen, known as tripe. These variants also contain fewer valuable nutrients.

Buying and preparing rumen
Ideally, you should buy rumen at your local farm or butcher shop. Unfortunately, fewer and fewer farms and butchers offer rumen, so you often have to ask slaughterhouses directly or buy the meat in a frozen state on the Internet. Before feeding a frozen rumen, you must of course thaw it first. Always look for high quality and question very low prices when ordering on the Internet.

Before the green rumen goes into the bowl, you should inspect the vitamin bomb for foreign bodies. Since cattle are not able to sort these out from the grass when eating, it can happen that small stones, metal or plastic particles end up in the forestomach and are not found even during processing at the slaughterhouse.
