Bone broth is great for dogs because it is full of important vitamins, nutrients and proteins. It is rich in protein and low in fat! The amino acids and nutrients are important in helping your dog maintain adequate collagen levels in their body.
Bone broth has the healthy benefit of collagen, glucosamine and glycine.
Collagen is a natural supplement that helps lubricate and protect connective tissues which in turn support the hips and joints. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound but as your dog ages the production slows down.
Glycine helps the liver perform so it can adequately filter toxins from your dog's body.
Bone broth also has the ability to fix leaky gut. Leaky gut occurs when the junctions in the intestinal tract have holes in it due to bacterial overgrowth which can be caused by poor diet, stress and other health problems. This can cause autoimmune reactions and leaching of toxins into a dog's system. The collagen helps to tighten these junctions.
It can also entice a picky eater or hydrate a sick and dehydrated dog as it is easy on their stomach.
Dogs can’t just have any bone broth from the grocery store shelf as it contains spices and preservatives that your dog does not need in their diet!
Instead purchase raw bone broth from your local pet store! Here at Poochie Moochie Edmonton we carry Primal Bone Broth as well as Open Farm.
