Why Are Broths Good For Dogs?
Bone based broths like chicken broth are great for dogs because of the healthy acids they give your dog, among other things.
Broth usually contains glycine, which is an amino acid. Glycine helps your dog’s liver and kidneys to detox. These organs are responsible for detoxing your dog’s body, and glycine helps them do that.
Glycine can also help keep a dog’s gut from being affected by leaky gut, a condition where the holes in the gut are too large and cause digestive problems. Glycine helps block them and reduce their size.
Bone broth is also good for joints because collagen is both in the broth and collagen production is boosted by it. This means that joint health can be improved with regular broth feeding.
