Since the invention of the pot, our ancestors have gathered around the fire and boiled up bone broths. Hippocrates the god father of medicine, born 460BC recommended it to people to heal digestive issues. Maimonides, a philosopher and physician born in Spain in 1138 ,recommended chicken bone broth as medicine, and it’s been used as a staple ingredient in asian cuisine for centuries.

The liver is a master organ of the body, in charge of eliminating toxins from the system. This process is called detoxification. The liver relies on the availability of an amino acid called glycine to operate effectively. And yes you’ve guessed it, bone broth is packed full of glycine.
Your dog’s liver works super hard everyday to process the toxins taken in through everyday living. Chemicals are absorbed into the body from the environment, cleaning products, treatments on carpets and upholstery, processed foods, flea and worming treatments, pharmaceutical medicines and so much more.
The liver can become overloaded simply through day to day life. Bone broth offers extra support to the liver’s function, helping it to operate at optimum level.
The kidneys are responsible for removing toxins and waste from the body, whilst filtering nutrients such as protein and controlling the fluid levels of the body.
To support kidney health, it is important to provide foods which are nutrient dense and moisture rich. Bone broth ticks both of these boxes. As an exceptionally hydrating food for dogs, bone broth can play a part in helping to maintain kidney health, and also places minimal demand on already compromised kidneys.
In addition, select herbs can act as a diuretic, and as such, can be added to bone broth, for example, ProDog’s dandelion and nettle infused bone broth for dogs provides extra nutritional support for the kidneys and the detox process.

It’s no secret that gut health is of optimum importance to overall health. An unhealthy gut can lead to poor nutrient absorption and imbalanced immune response, in turn leading to systemic inflammation in the body and a whole host of health conditions.
Gut imbalance is the root of many health issues; something that is true of both humans and dogs. Imbalanced gut flora and damage to the lining of the gut can occur through stress, poor diet, and certain medications, amongst other things. The result is a compromised gut environment which can lead to allergies, digestive upset, skin conditions, joint mobility issues and more.
Rebalancing the gut is an important first step in improving overall health, and bone broth can be a key element in this process. Bone broth is a tonic for the digestive system because it contains collagen, which forms gelatin when it’s cooked down. Gelatin contains amino acids such as glutamine, this works to strengthen the integrity of the gut lining promoting a healthy gut environment that can resume functionality to support whole-body health.
