There are so many reasons why dogs benefit from the slow cooked meaty goodness of bone broth.
True bone broth is made by simmering bones, water and dog friendly herbs and vegetables slowly over at least 12 hours. This slow, long cooking process draws all the minerals, amino acids & glucosamine out of the bones and the collagen out of the connective tissue and cartilage into the broth. The smaller bones will tend to crumble at the end of the cooking process.
Bone broth is a great addition to your dog’s current diet. Not only does bone broth encourage a healthy gut by improving your dog’s digestion, but it strengthens joints and reinforces your dog’s immune system. Bone broth is full of important nutrients like magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, collagen, and gelatin that dogs need.
The collagen in the broth help heal and seal the gut. It soothes an irritated digestive system and helps recover from illness. Collagen and glucosamine in the broth is also great for joint, coat and skin health.
Glycine is an amino acid found in the broths that is good to help liver detoxification. Dogs can come across all sorts of toxic stuff on their day to day travels such as chemicals in the home or sprayed on the grass at the park. Broth will help flush out these toxins on a daily basis and keep your dog healthy.
Another benefit of the broth is it tastes so good! Dogs love it and it can entice fussy eaters to eat. It is also a really good way to keep your furry friend hydrated in the warmer months.
The good thing about broth is you don’t need to give your dog a lot to see benefits – you can pour it over their regular meal, rehydrate dehydrated food, freeze into ice block treats and you can even add some blueberries or favourite chopped veggies to the ice blocks!
