Bone broth is a great way to provide your dog with essential vitamins and minerals. It can be frozen and used as a treat or added to your dog’s daily bowl.
The Benefits of Bone Broth for Dogs
We have all heard the saying “you are what you eat.” And if that is true, then it is safe to say that your dog is also what your dog eats.
And when it comes to dogs with cancer, we want our dogs to be as healthy as possible. That’s why we recommend bone broth for dogs with cancer.
Bone broth is made from boiling bones and other parts of an animal. This can include chicken wings, chicken feet, beef bones, cow tongue and more. Bone broth has been used by humans for thousands of years as a way to help strengthen their bodies and also fight off disease and infection. It has also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries as well.
Bone broth contains many nutrients that are essential for good health such as protein, collagen (which helps keep skin elastic) and glucosamine (which helps reduce joint stiffness). Bone broth also contains chondroitin sulfate which helps keep joints healthy by protecting them from wear and tear over time.
How to Make Bone Broth for Dogs
Here’s how to make bone broth for dogs:
- Start by buying bones from your local butcher. You can also get them at a farm store or your local grocery store.
- Place the bones in a large crockpot, cover them with water and add some salt and pepper if desired. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for at least 24 hours, skimming off any foam that rises to the top during cooking time.
- Strain out any remaining fat from the broth using cheesecloth or coffee filters before serving it to your dog (also remove any pieces of bone that remain after straining).
How Much to Offer
You’ll want to give your dog about a teaspoon per pound of body weight every day. For example, if your dog weighs 40 pounds, you would give him or her 2 tablespoons every day (40 x 2 = 80).
The best time to give bone broth to dogs with cancer is when they are having trouble chewing or swallowing. Instead of giving them soft food or treats, try giving them bone broth instead. It will help keep their mouth moist which can aid in swallowing problems.
