How Bone Broth Improves Dogs’ Skin And Coat

| Published on July 2, 2017

You might already know that bone broth is the latest superfood sweeping the nation for people. But did you know that bone broth is great for dogs, too? Not only is it a tasty treat that they’ll love, but it actually has many beneficial nutrients. Here are some of the nutrients found in bone broth that may help improve your dog’s skin and coat.


You’ve probably heard that many face creams include collagen, but did you know that you and your dog can also benefit from consuming collagen? Bone broth including joints as an ingredient is especially rich in collagen. Studies show that collagen supplements strengthen and improve the skin. It also improves the strength and shine of hair.


Thiamine, also called Vitamin B1, is one of the 8 B vitamins, which are collectively called B-complex vitamins. B-complex vitamins are essential for a healthy liver, skin, hair, and eyes. They’re also very important for brain and nervous system function.  


It’s well known that protein is a critical part of any diet, whether human or canine. Not only does consuming adequate amounts of protein help build strong muscles, but it’s also a crucial part of maintaining healthy skin and hair (or fur, as the case may be).

Don’t have time to boil bones for 24 hours to make a broth that spoils within a few days?

Project Paws™ Premium Grade Bone Broth Powder (4 oz.) is made in the USA from free-range elk bone and naturally shed elk antler. These are the only two ingredients, making this supplement grain-free, gluten-free, and soy-free – a great option for all dogs and especially those who suffer from allergies.

Bone broth powder offers all the same benefits of bone broth for dogs without the hassle and mess of making broth yourself. Just one scoop of powder per 40 pounds of dog weight adds flavor to your dog’s usual food as well as all the nutrients of broth.
