Yes. Bone-based broths contain collagen, which is good for joint health, and glycine, an amino acid that helps detox your dog’s kidneys and liver. You can make your own chicken broth, but leave out the onions and garlic. When buying store-bought broth, go for an organic, non-GMO variety to avoid added salt and preservatives.
- Add a little chicken broth to your dog’s usual bowl of food. This is especially helpful if your dog has trouble with dry food.
- If your dog is reluctant to eat something you need her to eat, coat it with chicken broth for enticement.
- If your dog is getting over a stomach illness, chicken broth is a great way to make sure he’s getting nutrients while he’s recovering.
