Bone broth is a stock liquid from cooked or simmering raw bones. Other parts of an animal that can’t be eaten, like ligaments, marrow, tendons, skin and feet can also be added to the bone broth mix to increase the nutritional content. This bone broth recipe for dogs is easy to make, and offers impressive health benefits.
First, add the bones to your slow cooker (or pot). You can add any type of bone, including chicken feet, lamb, duck or turkey necks, chicken frames, beef marrow bones, and so forth. You can use cooked bones, but raw bones are better because they still have all of the nutrients in them.
Next, cover the bones with water and add the apple cider vinegar. Cover the pot and cook on low heat for 24 hours. Check the broth occasionally, and add more water if it dips below the top of the bones.
When it’s finished cooking, strain the broth into a large container. DO NOT feed the cooked bones to your dog. The cooking process makes the bones brittle, which could be very dangerous to your dog’s digestive tract.
Allow the broth to cool and then refrigerate it for at least 3 hours. A fat layer will congeal on the top of the broth. Scoop the fat and throw it out, and then you are ready to serve the broth to your pup.
