5 Creative Ways to Incorporate Bone Broth into Your Dog's Diet

Bone broth is a delicious and nutritious way to elevate your dog's meals. It can be used as a food topper, a treat, or even a functional beverage between meals. Here are five creative ways to make this superfood a regular part of your dog's diet.

1. Bone Broth Gravy

Bone broth gravy is a thicker, more luxurious version of bone broth and can easily be made at home. Start with high-quality bone broth—our blends (liquid or powdered) work perfectly. In a stockpot, heat 16 oz. of bone broth over low heat until warm. Add 1 tsp. of coconut oil and 1 tsp. of tapioca starch, whisking until thickened. Adjust the thickness by adding more tapioca starch if needed. Let the gravy cool and serve it over your dog's food. You can refrigerate leftovers for a few days.

2. Supplement Cubes

If powdered supplements are hard to feed your dog, try blending them with bone broth and freezing the mixture in an ice cube tray. These bone broth supplement cubes can be popped out and given as treats, providing a sneaky yet effective way to give your dog a health boost.

3. Bone Broth Smoothie

Customize this smoothie recipe to suit your dog's taste and nutritional needs. Here's a basic, nutritious version: blend 1/2 cup bone broth, 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, and 1/4 cup frozen berries. Depending on your dog's size, serve a tablespoon or two up to 1/4 cup at a time. For an extra treat, sprinkle with cinnamon!

4. Bone Broth Meatloaf

Enhance your homemade dog meatloaf recipes with bone broth. Whether you're using ground meat, organs, vegetables, and eggs, simply add liquid bone broth or our powdered bone broth to infuse the recipe with collagen, glucosamine, and more. This adds extra flavor and nutrition to your dog's meals.

5. Kong Enrichment

Keep your dog entertained with a bone broth-stuffed Kong. Mix warm bone broth with your favorite dog food (dehydrated, freeze-dried, or fresh) and stuff it into a Kong toy. For longer-lasting fun, freeze the stuffed Kong before giving it to your dog. This enrichment activity not only keeps your dog busy but also provides a nutritious treat.

We hope these ideas inspire you to incorporate bone broth into your dog's diet in new and exciting ways. Happy feeding!
