I'm a Sucker for My Pet Carnivore

It is a well known fact that I love My Pet Carnivore.  They are a small local company, with amazing product and owners, and their commitment to quality is awe inspiring.  I am fortunate enough to live about 45 minutes from their warehouse in Indianapolis, and check their website about once a week to see if they have anything new, exotic, or that I cannot live without feeding to my dogs.

When I was checking earlier this week, I noticed they had a limited quantity of a bison grind, composed of bison tripe, lung and gullet.  I had to have some, even if it is a bit over my price per pound budget.  One has to splurge every once in a while, and I feel that variety is important in a dog's diet, so long as they do not have food allergies that prevent variety.

I have purchased both bison liver and kidney from MPC in the past, and these items were quite affordable, but I have not seen them available in a while. 

I picked up my order yesterday afternoon, and because I love sharing raw, I had to take photos of said order.

Ignore my slightly messy garage, which is where the dog food freezers are kept, and where these pics were taken.
 Four containers of the bison grind, each weighing two pounds.  I can split one of these containers three ways once a week for breakfast, to stretch out this bison as much as I can.

Four containers of Ground Beef Tripe.  I already had some of this in the freezer, but I was picking up an order so went ahead and purchased more.  I feed tripe at least once a week, so I consider it one of our staples.

One bag of green tripe strips/chunks, weighing five pounds.  This way they can actually chew on the tripe they are eating, as opposed to inhaling it, which is what they usually do with ground food.  Chewing is important, and I do try to offer large chunks of meat whenever I can.  Some are entirely opposed to feeding dogs any ground meat, but I personally do not have a problem with it.

Two bags of lamb hearts, each five pounds.  I did not realize how blurry this photo turned out.  Lamb organs (though I feed heart as a meaty meat) are about the only way I can afford to feed my dogs lamb, and as stated previously, I feel some variety is important.

In one of my boxes from MPC, there was a flyer, stating that they were hiring part-time.  I am seriously considering inquiring about a position.  Perhaps my email subject line will read: WILL WORK FOR DOG FOOD.


  1. Gosh that looks like a ton of delicious foodables. We say go for it re the job. You never know where it might lead.
    We hope you have a serene Sunday and go get yourself some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Great finds! Since I discovered our co-op, I'm so excited by what I can get for our dogs. They had lamb a couple of weeks ago, but Rodrigo is a hot dog, so he can't have lamb. But it was still exciting to see. I'm going to check out Bison soon, because I know that there's a store who carries it from time to time.

    Last weekend, I spent way too much at the pet store. In one city, there are THREE pet stores that carry raw and/or super healthy treats so I get sucked in and we start gabbing about raw, they love showing me new brands. Love it.

    I have to stay away for a while :)

    1. I am jealous! I only have one non big box pet supply store within 30 minutes of me.

  3. That sounds like such an awesome company. That would be pretty cool if you worked for them. Imagine all the discounts you would get! You should do some sort of partnership between My Pet Carnivore and your blog.

    1. I have actually thought about that, but I have no idea how to go about approaching them about it.


Thanks for the howls!!
