Wordless Wed.: The Dog's a Fan of the Bone Broth Craze!

Did you know there's a bone broth craze going on? (If something makes The Today Show it's probably officially a craze!) I've been making bone broth for the hubs (so it will hopefully help with his joint and bone issues). He drinks a hot mug of it every night, and the dog's a fan!

Here she is watching, waiting, and hoping while I prep the bones for the cooking.




If you want to learn more about the benefits, you can read this post here, or if you'd like to make some yourself (so you, too, can torture your dog during the long, slow cooking process!), here's the recipe I've been using.


Have you heard of the bone broth craze? Are you a bone broth fan like Rita is?

  3. I have heard if it. I think it would take me a week to simmer it though since I am never home long enough....lol.

    1. You could try it in a crock pot - then you could just leave it to simmer while you're out! (But you have to boil it first... if you're home long enough!)

  4. Never heard of it, but we are tortured all the time by what Mom is doing in the kitchen, so unfair.

  5. Hi Y'all!

    My Human makes somethin' she calls "stock" with bones she trims out of meat or fish heads and lots of fresh veggies. She puts it in the ice box and uses it when she cooks. Of course she puts some of the broth over my supper!

    Y'all come on by,

    1. Yeah - exactly - it's really just "stock" - but old fashioned, home-made stock, not like the stocks and broths they sell in the store now. It's yummy over your supper, isn't it, Hawk?!

    1. It's really basically stock like grandma's use to make! You can make it with turkey, chicken, beef, whatever bones.

  8. When we saw the name of your blog, we just had to drop in; even though, we are a household of kitties. Mom says she's never heard of bone broth. We'd probably like it, though. If you have time drop by and see us at The Cat on My Head. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calistsa Jo

  11. Your right. Once it hits the television it does become a "craze" LOL I honestly didn't know much about broth until I received a sample from THK. Harley seems to enjoy it - especially on the days when its really cold and we've been outside for a while. He sucks it up with his kibble. Thanks for sharing your recipe will definitely make a batch....

    1. I make a separate soup for Rita in the crockpot (just w/ organic meat, root veg and green veg) that goes over her dry food. She LOVES it! At first the hubs was annoyed I'd make special soup for her but not for him, so now I'm making separate batches for both of them!

  12. This was a staple of my grandmother's cooking. What is old will always be new again or something like that.

  13. I just heard about it the other day. Did she get some broth?

    1. She did indeed! Daddy always shares a little bit!

  14. We always made broth for human cooking with bones. Crock pot works great if you can't be home.

    1. The recipe I have says you really need to boil it first, so you can make it in the crockpot, but need to start it on the stovetop, boil it, skim off the 'scum' (gross), and then put it in the crockpot. (Although I have a fancy-schmancy crockpot that has a regular cooking option on it, so I could probably get it to boil in there, and then switch it over to crockpot-mode.)

  15. Oh yes....isn't bone broth high in glucosamine and chondroitin? No matter to me...I'm with Rita! It's just delicious!

    1. Yes it is! (on both counts - high in glucosamine/chondroitin AND delicious for pups!) Our acupuncturist turned us on to it. She said there's a real movement of folks realizing they can get things from food they used to think they had to take supplements for.

  16. I remember someone mentioning this to me sometime last year. I may have to look into it. I love torturing...er...cooking for Blueberry, so this sounds like a fun and beneficial thing to do!

  17. I have heard of this from several sources including Dr.Mercola. I haven't tried it because I feel overwhelmed with all the "good stuff" we are supposed to be doing for ourselves/pets. At some point, I just have to say enough is enough. Has the hubs been drinking it long enough to have any feedback?

    1. Ugh, I hear you on the keeping up with all the good stuff we're supposed to be doing! It's just not possible to do it all! But the hubs guilt-sucked me into this cuz I was already making soup for the dog! :) Anyway, no - it's only been a few weeks, so too soon to know if there are going to be real results. He has serious bone issues (osteopenia) so we won't really know anything until his next scan, which probably won't be for ages cuz he had one recently.

  18. I have heard of the bone broth (I get Dr. Mercola's newsletters) but haven't tried it yet. I'm overwhelmed with trying to find grass fed, organic meats (do you do that?) It does sound like it could be very beneficial, and I'm sure the dogs would be excited if I tried it and shared!

    1. Yes, we try to do the grass fed, organic stuff. But it's not always easy to find, so I go with what I can find. I heard that had the grassfed bones at Sprouts (a local healthfood store chain here) so I went today, but it just seemed to be regular ol' bones. Still, I bought some lamb bones to try something different.

    1. I think it's a result of the "paleo" diet thing. (Although I wouldn't know - cuz we don't do the paleo diet. Or any diet for that matter. We just eat pretty much everything.)

  24. I just learned about this "craze" the other day - from a blogger who makes it for herself and for her pups. I'm certain our dogs would go crazy for it!

  26. Hmmm...interesting. With three dogs who have and/or had leg/joint issues, this might be a something to think about investigating further.
