Bone Broth for Your Dog
Bone broth has been consumed by humans for thousands of years. Many of the things we do and eat to increase our own health and longevity can apply to our dogs, and bone broth is no exception. When made correctly, bone broth will have a gelatinous texture at fridge temperature. It contains loads of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and packs a huge flavourful punch. This makes it the perfect medicine for older dogs, or those who are ailing. Bone broth is also a powerful preventative.
How does bone broth help joint health?
- The natural gelatin that occurs helps rebuild connective tissue, therefore decreasing the recovery time from injuries such as sprains, breaks or ACL tears.
- The reparative and anti-inflammatory nutrients in bone broth help reduce joint pain due to osteoarthritis.
How does bone broth aid digestion?
- The amino acids in bone broth help with fat digestion, and to replenish the gut’s lining. So it can be helpful in the healing of leaky gut, IBD and IBS.
What other beneficial nutrients are in bone broth?
- Calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus are wonderful for developing puppies as well as senior dogs.
What other powers does bone broth have?
- It can encourage inappetent dogs to eat and drink.
- It boosts the systems of immune compromised dogs, such as puppies recovering from kennel cough, dogs undergoing cancer treatment, dogs taking steroids, dogs with allergies, and more. * (please note that if your dog suffers from kidney disease, bone broth might not be right for him.)
- Bone broth is great for nursing bitches as well.
Health and Longevity
What every owner wants is a dog that lives long and has a great quality of life, free from pain. What scientific research tells us is that the dogs who live the longest are those who’ve eaten a wide variety of foods throughout their lives. We know that inflammation causes pain, and ultimately is at the root of many diseases. Bone broth is a natural, powerful anti-inflammatory that adds a next level of nutrition to your dog’s diet no matter what else you’re feeding them.
