There are many reasons that experts say bone broth is beneficial for

dogs – particularly aging or sick canines – here are the top reasons:

  • Supports your dog’s immune system

  • Maintains healthy digestion and soothes tummy issues

  • A natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, both of

  • which are excellent for bones and joints

  • Packed with minerals, which are good for your pup

  • Easy to make, for even the most inexperienced cook.


  • Bones (chicken, turkey, beef, whatever you enjoyed over the

  • holidays)

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • Water



Put all of the bones in your crock-pot. You can also just use

a pot on the stove, but the crock-pot is the simplest way, since you

won’t have to worry about leaving it unattended. Add enough water to

cover the bones by about an inch, then add two to four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. The apple cider vinegar helps pull all of the

minerals and nutrients out of the bones and into your broth. Set your

crock-pot to low and let everything cook for 24 hours – though some

(patient) people prefer cooking it for up to 72 hours. Keep an eye on

your super-delicious creation adding water as needed to keep the

bones covered.


Your broth is almost ready to use. Strain the bones from the broth and

cool before serving. Bone broth can be kept frozen (try using ice cub

trays for easy portioning) for up to a year. Broth must be kept in the fridge and must be used in 3-4 days.
