Bone Broth for Dogs: Why it’s Healthy

Bone broth is a tasty addition to any dog’s diet. Bone broth is jam-packed with vitamins and minerals to support your dog’s health, and there are tons of amino acids. 

If you’ve never made bone broth before, don’t panic, it’s simple. It’s not an over-the-top, expensive soup. And, it only requires a few ingredients.

Bone Broth Benefits 

There are many benefits to bone broth, but the following are a few of them: 

  • Improved digestive health 
  • Detoxification of the liver 
  • Joint health
  • Boosted immune system 

For dogs going through illness, the bone broth could help significantly by providing the extra nutrients necessary for your dog to feel better. Plus, if your dog isn’t feeling well, he might not want to eat. Adding bone broth as a topping to his food (or simply as a soup alone) may trigger his appetite.

Bone Broth Ingredients 

  • One clove of garlic, fresh, unpeeled (not minced garlic- minced garlic in the can is processed) 
  • Chicken feet (chicken feet contain high-quality gelatin) 
  • Beef marrow bones (ask your local butcher for these) 
  • Lemon juice (at least 3 tablespoons) 

If you’re wondering how many chicken feet and beef marrow bones you should grab… grab as many as you think will fit into your crock pot. The more you can fit, the better.  

That’s it. Those are all the ingredients. 

Throw all those ingredients into your slow cooker and let it go. Make sure all the bones are covered with water (as you would a normal type of soup). Once the bones begin to get soft, you’ll know it’s time to take them out.  

Make sure you remove all the bones to ensure your dog doesn’t choke on any or accidentally obstruct their digestive system. 

You will also notice there’s a film on top. Remove that film (you don’t need to keep that).  

That’s it. Simple. Easy. Tasty. Time to get cooking for your pup!
