If you’re looking for a protein rich supplement to benefit the health of your cat or dog, bone broth is a great option. Bone broth is cooked over a long period of time in order to extract the collagen.
Collagen, the most abundant protein in your pets’ bodies, works to strengthen bones, and is good for the skin. Additional ingredients such as fruits and vegetables are then added to the bone broth to aid in drawing out both the collagen and nutrients from the meaty bones.
Bone broth can be used to help fight food sensitivities, as the gelatin from the collagen works really well to restore good bacteria in a pet’s gut. Because its nutrients are so easily digestible, sick or older pets can benefit from the consumption of bone broth. With good digestion comes a healthy immune system, and a healthy pet.
Two really good nutrients that come from bone broth are chondroitin and glucosamine –both really good for reducing inflammation, arthritis, and joint pains. These two nutrients work together to strengthen your pet’s bones and soften their skin.
Finding a good supplement may be the key to your pets’ health and happiness, and bone broth could be the answer.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to your local pet store if you have questions on this or any pet related topic.
