Bone Broth for dogs

So we've mentioned a few times about bone broth in a few of our posts and we finally remembered to take some photos of it.  See our latest cancer post here.  We did forget to take photos before we cooked it but I guess tiny humans can do that to you.

We got our bone broth inspiration from here, and a few of our canine loving friends.  We use raw bones to make ours, we could use cooked but for us raw is easy for us to find at a good price point.  Pork neck bones are awesome to use!  We have also used turkey wings.  That is what we used this time.  Any joint bones are good (the cartilage is what you are looking for).

We just throw ours in a slow cooker and let it cook for at least 24 hours.  The link above is a great site to get inspiration from.  We took ours out of the slow cooker and chilled it overnight then removed the layer of fat which really wasn't that much.

This is what it looked like after we removed the layer of fat, it is a gelatin like consistency when cold.

Then we put it in ice cube trays until frozen and drop them in a freezer bag until we need to use them.  You can also store it in the fridge for 4 days.


Bone broth is pretty easy to make and it helps with so many things.  Definitely something good for our little cancer patient.
