Bone broth has recently gained its popularity not only for humans to consume but also for dogs and cats. Bone broth is however not a new "fab" or a new "super food" In fact, bone broth has been used in cultures around the globe for centuries due to its amazing immune boosting qualities.
What is Bone Broth?
Bone broth for dogs combines chicken, fish or beef bones in a slow cooker with water and apple cider vinegar and cooks between 24 and 48 hours. This broth is rich in gelatin, potassium and calcium and aids in your dog's gut health, joints, bones and the immune system. It is now known that between 70-80% of our immune system is in the gut so it is especially important to focus on your pet's diet to obtain optimal health.
Store bought bone broth can contain dangerous and unnecessary ingredients for your dog so we recommend making your own bone broth that requires minimal cooking skills. In fact, you can reuse otherwise discarded beef or chicken bones after a big family meal.
Benefits of Bone Broth
Whether your pup is young or old or has a difficult stomach, general bone and joint complications or a sluggish immune system, your dog can benefit from bone broth.
We recommend one cup of bone broth for dogs a day, supplemented with their usual favorite food will contain enough fiber and gelatin to aid in digestive issues. Be aware, your dog will LOVE this so much it will become their favorite treat.
We believe there in nothing better for your loved one than a delicious meal that is healthy and full of amazing nutrients.
Enjoy this wonderful broth and watch your dog develop beautiful skin and a shiny coat.
