Want your dog to have all the goodness of collagen, protein and marrow but don't want to risk giving them a bone to gnaw on?
Whip up a homemade bone broth using some Georgia grown grass-fed beef bones from Brown Dawg Bites.
Bone broth is super easy to make and offers great benefits to your pet. Please note though, bone broth will not suffice as a replacement for bone or bone meal in a raw diet.
Bone broth has been shown to be great for dogs as a liver detox and gut protector due to the gelatin that forms during cooking. The collagen from the bones helps protects joints and if you through in a little turmeric you will be helping reduce inflammation. Dogs also LOVE it and don't we love to make them happy?!
So grab these ingredients: grass-fed beef marrow bone x 2lb, apple cider vinegar x 1/3 cup, water to cover and throw in some veges and particularly some turmeric (great for inflammation)
Place the bones in a large stock pot, pressure cooker, or slow cooker. Pour enough water in the pot to cover the bones by 2 inches.
Add apple cider vinegar to the water. This will help pull the nutrients from the bones.
Fill the rest of the pot with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and let simmer for at least 6 hours.
After 6 hours, remove any debris that has risen to create a film at the top of the broth.
Cook slow on low heat 48 hours for beef bones. Be aware, cooking time will vary between a pressure cooker and a slow cooker.
Remove the bone (check for any little pieces) and serve.
Bone broth can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Serve it up with any meat, fat and vegetables - your dog will love it.
