Natural Goodness for Improved Canine Health

Chicken Bone Broth

The superfood for dogs that time forgot!

Packed full of healthy, natural vitamins and minerals, chicken bone broth makes an ideal topping or dressing for fussy eaters or dogs in need of a pick-me-up. Why buy a glucosamine supplement when you can give your dog the real thing!

Bone broth provides so much of the missing goodness in the modern canine diet. Packed full of vitamins and minerals such as glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid and collagen, bone broth is good for joints, tendons and ligaments, supports the immune system, helps detoxify the liver and even promotes a healthy digestive system. It’s particularly beneficial for the older dog to help protect against the effects of arthritis!

METHOD

Step 1

Add an entire chicken carcass to a slow cooker or crockpot. Don’t waste anything. Whatever’s left over after you’ve cooked and eaten a chicken for yourself or your family, add to the pot. (This assumes that like us, you don’t stuff your chicken and don’t smother it with salt, etc). If you buy a whole chicken and strip it before it’s cooked, that’s fine as well. Just add everything you’re not going to use to the pot. Don’t worry about giving your dog cooked bones. There won’t be any bones left when you’ve finished making your dog’s broth.

Step 2

Cover the chicken with water and add the 3 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar. The vinegar helps to draw the nutrients out of the chicken bones and into the liquid.

Step 3

Set your slow cooker to low and programme or cook for 48 hours, stirring occasionally to break down the carcass. Add extra water if necessary.

Step 4

After 48 hours, switch off the heat and allow everything to cool. Once cool enough to process safely, ladle the contents of your slow cooker into a blender. At this stage, you’ll find that many of the remaining bones will simply crumble in your fingers. That said, using a blender is much quicker – and a lot less messy! You may have to do this a little at a time depending on the size of your blender. Whizz up the contents of your blender for, say, 20 to 30 seconds. Providing no bone remains, add the contents to a jug or bowl and repeat the process until the slow cooker is empty.

Step 5

We suggest adding each blend to a jug or bowl so that you can give the broth a final stir before apportioning or serving. With our two large dogs, we pour the chicken bone broth into 113ml (4oz) lidded plastic pots, freeze them, and add them to our dogs supper one pot a day. What you decide not to freeze will happily sit in your fridge for up to 3 days.

About this Recipe

Bone broth truly is the superfood for dogs that time forgot. For a sick dog, it’s an ideal pick-me-up and provides valuable nutrition when he or she may be off their food. If you do give it to your dog when he or she is feeling under the weather, water it down a little to make it go further, and perhaps try warming it up a tadge to make it easier on the tummy. It’s surprising how quickly dogs recover when a bowl of warm bone broth is placed in front of them!

For a normal healthy dog, it helps support the immune system and helps maintain a healthy digestive system. Our dogs have it every single day and they thrive on it. For a senior dog, nothing is better for protecting those aging joints against life’s wears and tears. And it’s just as healthy whether you use a cooked or uncooked chicken carcass.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can add some vegetables to the slow cooker to liven up your dog’s bone broth. And if you’re feeling even more adventurous, you can even have some of your dog’s bone broth yourself. (If he or she will let you!). It’s extremely healthy and exceptionally beneficial to humans as well as dogs. In point of fact, bone broth has actually become quite trendy right now. Don’t believe us? Check it out on Google!

This recipe is for chicken bone broth, but you could also make beef bone broth instead. If you’re at all concerned about any remaining bone, strain the broth and throw away the bones.

If, as can happen from time to time, your dog stops drinking water, add a little bone broth to his or her water bowl and watch the difference. It can also be used as a dressing on dry food such as kibble, added to your dog’s normal meal or, if he or she is really, really spoiled like our two, added to their 9 o’clock supper with some cooked vegetables or healthy leftovers. Don’t ask!
