I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was pretty good. :D Just low-key and laid-back.
Thanks to The Honest Kitchen, the dogs had their very own special treat for Thanksgiving! THK recently came out with a new treat for both dogs and cats called Bone Broth. This simple, four-ingredient (beef bone broth, parsley, pumpkin, and turmeric) snack comes in a powder form. You simply dissolve one tablespoon into one cup warm water, and serve!
You can give it plain, freeze it, pour it over food, whatever you please. I pour it over my dogs' kibble, and they love it.
Bone broth is a great, healthy snack for any dog. It's full of nutrients, and promotes joint and gut health, as well as detoxes the liver. Turmeric is also hugely beneficial to dogs, cats, and people! Amongst its many, many benefits, turmeric helps reduce cancer risks, is great for the heart and liver, and is one of the strongest natural anti-inflamatories.

There are 59 calories per cup of hydrated Bone Broth, so it's a fairly low calorie supplement. Depending on your dog's size, you can give anywhere from 1 tablespoon to 1 cup or more. 9.5lb Nola gets 2 TBSP, where 35-ishlb Roxanne gets the full cup.
The dogs are thrilled with the flavor of Bone Broth, and I'm stoked about all the health benefits. I'll be adding this to the dogs' food closet (yes, closet), and highly recommend it!
