If you’re like me and make a lot of bone broth from your roast chicken dinners, then you’re going to be pretty happy to learn this method for also being able to give the chicken bones to your dogs.
Yes, I know you’re never supposed to give cooked chicken bones to dogs – the bones can splinter and pierce the dog’s throat or stomach. BUT I’m going to show you a way to prepare the bones where that can never happen – see for yourself:
If you’ve never made bone broth before, here’s one of my easy recipes. Organic or pasture-raised bone broth is very healing for the gut and clinically proven to reduce the severity of the cold or flu – see, Grandma was right!
TIP: If you don’t like the taste of bone broth boiled for 12+ hours, then you can just boil the bones for 6 hours and strain off the liquid to use for your own broth. Fill the pot with fresh filtered water and boil the bones/skin/meat again for 6-8 hours for your dogs.
