Bone Broth Recipe for Dogs
Bone broth is healthy for us and also for dogs…plus it's super easy to make. Here's a quick overview.
Save bones from chicken, steak, pork, and turkey. Don't use lamb or fish bones, the flavor is too strong. Leftover bones from your diner are fine. Rinse to remove seasoning. Blanch in boiling water to remove any bacteria. Drain and freeze until you have enough to fill a slow cooker.
Pack the bones into the slow cooker. The more bones the better. Cover with boiling water. Set on low. Cook for at least 24 hours up to 48 hours. Let cool to room temperature
Put a colander over a pot big enough to hold all the broth. Drain pressing down on the bones to get as much of the broth as possible.
Strain using a fine mesh strainer. Refrigerate so any fat congeals on the top. Remove the fat. The broth should be the texture of soft jello when cold.
Freeze in ice cube trays. Add an ice cube or two to your dog's kibble or meal. The cubes are good on a hot day as an extra treat.
