7 Reasons You Should Be Giving Your Dog Bone Broth

While pet parents of senior dogs may have heard about the benefits of bone broth, the fact is, this comforting concoction can improve health for pups of all ages. This simple addition to your dog’s diet can really make a difference in their overall well-being!

Below you’ll find 7 reasons why you should be giving your dog delicious, nutritious bone broth, according to Dogs Naturally Magazine.

1. Helps with digestion.

A well-rounded broth helps support your pooches’ gut health. Stress, poor diet, and bacterial overgrowth can interfere with digestion, and a good broth helps heal the stomach, reducing inflammation. This is particularly advantageous for pups with chronic digestive issues.

2. Improves the immune system.

Bone broth has some amazing nutrients that, in helping reduce inflammation in the gut, also gives a good boost to the immune system.

A health-filled broth strengthens your pup’s immune system to help him fight off disease, whether he’s young or old!

3. Detoxes liver

This tasty treat also helps clean the liver, which is bombarded from exposure to household cleaners, flea and tick preventative medications, and many other substances we use every day.

Bone broth comes to the rescue thanks to one common nutrient in broth, the amino acid glycine, which your dog’s liver uses to detoxify itself.

4. Good for joints

The collagen found in the bone, marrow, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons used in creating bone broth breaks down into gelatin, which your pup’s body uses to improve his joint health.

Bone broth helps protect your dog’s joints as he ages… the sooner he starts eating the stuff, the better!

5. Boosts health for a sick dog

Is your pup feeling under the weather? Nourishing bone broth can help your canine get back on her (four) feet!

The vitamins and minerals found in bone broth are just the thing your pup’s immune system needs to fight off her ailment.

6. It tastes good!

Do you want to treat your dog to something special that’s also healthy? Bone broth is delicious (think chicken soup but with only the safe, healthy stuff your dog needs).

He’ll love the meaty, hearty flavor of a tasty broth!

7. Makes skin and coat more resilient

Canines don’t have clothes to protect them from the elements, just their coats! Protect their skin and fur with the addition of bone broth to their diets.

The gelatin and other nutrients in bone broth help support healthy skin and coat.

You can make your own broth at home, but it can take hours. Plus, you want to make sure your pup is getting the proper balance of nutrients and consuming safe ingredients.

iHeartDogs’ Bone Broth Powder for Dogs can be sprinkled right on top of their kibble for all the health benefits of a traditional liquid broth. Made with elk antler, which is humanely collected when they’re naturally shed, our collagen-rich blend promotes healthy gut function, joint health, immune support, healthy appetite, and resilient skin and coat.

This easily digestible, tasty, convenient powder can be used to supplement the diets of all your canine companions!
