Why Bone Broth is The Ultimate Superfood For Senior Dogs

As our dogs age their appetites may begin to wane due to dental soreness, arthritis pain or decreased activity. Seniors that don’t take in adequate levels of essential nutrients like amino acids, potassium, zinc, and calcium are at a higher risk for illness. Bone broth is an easy and delicious way to give your older dog a power punch of nutrition and the calories she needs to keep her active and feeling great!

Physicians and veterinarians have long hailed bone broth as a superfood, using it to help ease symptoms from or even treat ailments including arthritis, allergies and food sensitivities. It promotes healthy skin, efficient digestion, and joint health when added to a balanced diet.

Should your senior dog experience a bout of illness or undergo surgery, bone broth is the perfect solution to rebuild her appetite and ensure she gets adequate nutrition during recovery. Better still, the delicious taste is something dogs beg for.

Aside from multiple amino acids and the nutrients listed above, bone broth is naturally rich in glucosamine and chondroitin, which have been proven to aid in the relief of arthritis symptoms that often plague senior dogs. Bone broth is also high in Vitamin C, which acts as a powerful antioxidant to reduce rheumatoid inflammation, and magnesium which increases bone density and relaxes muscles.

While many senior dog parents opt to make their own bone broth from scratch, it is a time consuming process and the broth has a short shelf life. The new Project Paws™ Premium Grade Bone Broth Powder gives your dog all the benefits of bone broth in a convenient, easy to digest form.

Whether pouring it over your senior dog’s regular diet to entice her to eat a bit more, or fed separately as an added boost during times of poor health, bone broth is a secret weapon all senior dog pawrents should have in their arsenal!
