Bone Broth for Joint & General Wellbeing


Bone Broth has long been used as a joint formula, gut health formula and a general wellbeing formula. Learn more about the benefits and science of Bone Broth here How to give to your dog:

  1. Scrap fat off the top

  2. Mix the bone broth into your dog’s food as is, no need to heat up unless you want to

  3. Start at lower amounts and build up to the below as nutrient dense broth may need a week to build up tolerance to.

Amount:

  • X-Small Dogs and Cats - 1 tbs

  • Small Dogs and Cats – 1/8 cup

  • Medium size dogs – ¼ cup

  • Large dogs – 1/3 to ½ cup

  • Giant - 1-2 cups a day (same as an adult human)

Using a 5.5L Slow Cooker, this is how we make our Broths: Chicken

  • 2 kilos of Chicken Feet

  • 4 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother (floaty bits)

  • Fill to the rim with cold water

  • Slow cook for 24 hours on low

  • Remove bones

  • Place into containers to pop in the fridge or freeze what you won't use in a week

  • When cool, the formula should set like a Jelly, typically you would let it set overnight.

If you don't want to waste anything, you can pop your chicken feet from the broth into the blender and then pop in the oven or dehydrator to make bone broth cookies. We usually add Flaxseed, Chia Seed and Seaweed flakes in the blender to ours.

Non-Chicken Bones

  • 2 Kilos of bones such as Beef Soup bones (the less meat and more actual bone the better - you want to only be using joint bones)

  • 4 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother (floaty bits)

  • Cover bones with water, do not fill to the rim otherwise it's likely to overflow the fat that will rise to the top and you'll more than likley get a watery broth vs a jelly one.

  • Slow cook for 24 hours on low

  • Remove bones

  • Allow to set in fridge overnight to allow the fat to set on the top that you can remove, you should end up with a jelly texture

  • Place into containers to pop in the fridge or freeze what you won't use in a week

  • Any meat that comes off the bones can be popped into the dogs food or into the dehydrator
