Hi, I’m Wheels and I am a special contributor to BubbleLife.com. I’m hooked on a new product available at the Dallas Farmer’s Market that I want to tell you about.
Bone broth for dogs! Now some of you may say “I think I’ve heard it all” while others will say “but this is Dallas.” And why not? We dogs comfort you in so many ways; comfort us with a bowl of soup. It’s good for the body and soul— yours and mine.
JoAnn Bondy of Stocks and Bondy located in Shed 2 at the Dallas Farmer’s Market has extended her market to include canine nutrition with “Bone Broth for Pets.”
All organic and human quality, this line of broth packaged especially for us provides the same health benefits for dogs as it does for humans. It supplies gelatinous protein that protects joints, aids in liver function, digestion and removes toxins from the body. Plus it’s lip smackin’ good. While it does not replace my dog food, it is a healthy addition. I like a little poured over my kibble.
Bone broth is made by slow cooking organic beef and chicken bones, food we already love. The broth can be made at home but it is time consuming. Stocks and Bondy offers bone broth slow cooked to perfection. While the grocery store product may be convenient for many uses, it was not intended as holistic nutrition.
The addition of bone broth makes a great supplement to our normal diet. It is good for any dog, but especially beneficial to older dogs and sometimes dogs that are under the weather. As with any product, always check with your veterinarian before changing or adding a supplement to the diet of a dog with a serious health problem or condition.
Studies show that dogs raised on a varied diet prefer variety. From a nutritional standpoint, it makes sense for an animal to crave nutrients its current diet lacks. However, there are foods that are good for humans that are not good for us. Do not feed us avocados, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes or cherries and grapes.
I think I will go to the kitchen and see if my dinner is ready.
