About the Recipe

Bone broth feeding suggestions are usually 50-150mls daily however should your dog be unwell with a stomach bug you can of course give some extra broth to help aid recovery.


  • Any feet, enough to fill your pot. Many for example use a bag of chicken or duck feet, or 1-2 pig trotters

  • Water - filtered is of course better but tap water is fine if this is all you have. If you are concerned over the recent tap water scandal you could boil the water first before using it.

  • Add 8-10 tablespoons of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar with The Mother to draw out the goodness, such as Alexanders Natural

You will also need either a large pot for the stove top, a slow cooker or a pressure cooker.


  • Add the feet of your choosing to the pot

  • Add a pinch of black pepper to help reduce the smell of vinegar

  • Fill with water to the water line on your cooking device or 2-3cm from the top

  • If using a slow cooker, cook on high for 2 hours, then low for 36 hours

  • If using a stove, cook for 12-18 hours

  • If using a pressure cooker 4 hours on high

  • Strain the broth into a large container using a sieve or cheesecloth

⚠️ Never feed cooked bones, carefully discard of these always.

Some meat may be visible from the bones used. Some members do choose to feed this however if you do this is at your own risk as tiny pieces of bone may still be present.

  • Leave to cool to room temperature, then place in the fridge for 24 hours to set.

  • A layer of fat will usually form, we suggest scraping this off as too much fay can cause weight gain or digestive upset, however you can also use this by freezing into small fat treats if your dog is not prone to pancreatic flare ups, or weight issues, should you wish to.

  • Use the remaining broth directly from the fridge within 7 days, or freeze into moulds or soup bags for better portioning.

  • Add organic turmeric after cooking, for an additional boost to supporting joints and giving anti-inflammatory properties

  • Use different animal bones for different flavours

  • The gelatine in bone broth can help to plug the gaps made in the gut wall in dogs with leaky gut. Due to this we strongly advise using it daily from day one of transitioning to raw.
