Bone broth is a completely natural product with absolutely nothing added to extend the shelf life or enhance the flavour.
This is one of the reasons we suggest your bone broth is refrigerated at all times, even when defrosting.
Bone broth has a jelly like texture and this comes from the natural gelatine produced from bone and connected cartilage.
Natural gelatine gels at low temperatures over a few hours depending on the fridge temperature and stays that way unless the bone broth is removed from the fridge for a period of time where the bone broth returns to a thin watery liquid due to the rise in temperature.
If this happens to your broth there’s no need for any concern as your broth still contains everything it should and will return back to a gel texture when placed bake into the refrigerator to cool down.
If you find your bone broth has thinned out to a liquid due to a slight temperature rise it can still be fed to your pet as normal, its exactly the same and still contains all the proteins and minerals.
The recommended feeding guide is 100mls per day maximum or 3 heaped tablespoons with or without food.
You can’t overdose your pet on bone broth and in most cases the recommended daily feeding guide would provide a boosting effect should your pet be suffering at that point.
Feeding as a maintenance plan or to keep your pet in good health.
The recommended amount of 100ml per day should be halved to 50ml per day.
For working and high drive dogs we recommend 100ml per day as these dogs are more likely to be using their joints and tendons at a greater impact ratio.
Although your pet will receive loads of valuable proteins and minerals from bone broth we have to remember it’s not a complete meal on its own, If your pet is unable to eat a complete meal at this time try adding some shredded meat of your choice or veg to the broth.
We have added a useful link at the bottom of the page where you will find the types of fruits and vegetables that can be added to bone broth to help with recovery or simply build up strength.
Bone broth will also keep your pet hydrated should drinking water be a problem.
Most if not all cats or dogs love the taste of bone broth so basically anyway that you prefer to feed the broth will probably be fine with your pet.
For sick, picky or recovering pets bone broth can be added to almost anything your dog will eat that’s edible.
If your pet is unable to eat, a syringe is a good way to get the proteins and minerals from bone broth into the system.
