Bone broth is one of nature’s simplest food supplements; enriching for the gut, it greatly supports dogs’ overall health and wellbeing.
Our Bone Broths are rich with vital vitamins and minerals and naturally delicious! Here are a few of the benefits of bone broth for dogs:
1) Digestive health
Thanks to its abundance of naturally-occurring collagen, bone broth strengthens and helps to maintain the gut lining, whilst promoting a preferable environment for good gut bacteria to thrive.
2) Joint health
The high content of amino acids, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, and chondroitin found in bone broth lubricates and helps to reduce inflammation within joints, whilst the minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, promote healthy bones and mobility.
3) Liver support
Bone broth is rich in glycine; an amino acid that the liver requires to perform its detoxification process . Feeding bone broth allows your dog’s liver to remain healthy by supplying it with what it needs to function optimally.
4) Kidney function
Dehydration is the enemy of healthy kidneys. Eliminating toxins from your dog’s body is much easier for kidneys that are adequately hydrated and nourished; both of which are accomplished when feeding bone broth.
Adding specific herbs to bone broth can also aid the kidney and liver in their detox duties. Try our Dandelion and Nettle Beef Bone Broth for a tonic infused with nature’s best.
5) Transitioning to a raw diet
Digestive upset can occur when changing dogs’ food, so feeding bone broth during these times can help them maintain electrolyte balance.
Its gut soothing properties are also helpful, allowing your dog to transition to a healthier diet with minimal adverse effects. Read more about switching to a raw dog food diet.
6) When they’re unwell
When dogs are ill, they’re usually less inclined to eat. Warmed bone broth is a great addition to give as a drink, and can even be syringed into the dog’s mouth to help keep them hydrated; providing nutrients that support recuperation.
