Alexander's Natural Bone Broth - Duck- 500ml

Broth is packed full of nutrition, it has plentiful & equal amounts of calcium & phosphorus and is a great source of vitamin b12, riboflavin (b2), vitamin d & magnesium. A wide variety of bioactive compounds including organic acids & peptides.

1. Great Source of Essential Minerals

Bone broths contain essential minerals in forms that your pet’s body can easily absorb. Inside bone broth you’ll find calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. If your dog typically eats dried and packaged food, he/she might be missing many of these minerals that help with important functions like heart health, nerve signalling, hydration, muscle contractions, sleep and more.

Adding bone broth to your pets’ water may also encourage them to drink more water, keeping them better hydrated. And if your dog is sick and lacking an appetite, the aroma of bone broth might make it easier for it to eat and stay fuelled.

2. Can Help Heal Joints

Can bone broth help heal joints in dogs? You bet. Bone broth is a great source of glucosamine, a joint-protecting compound, and other substances like chondroitin and hyaluronic acid that help support joints’ elasticity, strength and flexibility. It’s also the best food source of collagen/gelatin, a complex protein that helps form connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, skin, bone and more). Collagen can help repair connective tissue that surrounds and cushions the ends of your pet’s bones, facilitating smoother movement and leading to less irritation and pain.

Is bone broth good for dogs with arthritis? Yes. In fact in humans, chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine (both naturally found in bone broth) are two popular joint-supporting compounds that are sold as pricey supplements intended to help reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain.  Glucosamine is considered a “collagen cofactor” since the two work together to stimulate cells called fibroblasts and heal damaged joints, tendons, ligaments and other tissues.

3. Supports Digestion and Gut Health

Why is bone broth good for dogs with digestive issues? Thanks to its supply of amino acids like glycine and proline, real bone broth can help promote healthy gut integrity while reducing inflammation and intestinal permeability (also known as leaky gut syndrome). It does this by repairing damage to the tissues that line the colon and entire gastrointestinal tract.

In studies conducted on rats, the amino acid glycine has been shown to have the ability to protect the gastric mucosa against chemically and stress-induced ulcers. Restoring strength of the gut lining is helpful for fighting food sensitivities (such as wheat or dairy, which some dogs are susceptible to), regulating gastric acid secretions and helping with the growth of “good bacteria” called probiotics. 

Several important glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are found in bone broth, including glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate. Like glycine, GAGs are supportive of digestive health because they help restore the intestinal lining and fight leaky gut. 

4. Beneficial for the Immune System

Studies have found that amino acids that are released when bone broth/stock is made help reduce inflammation in the respiratory system and improve the immune system’s ability to fight conditions like allergies, asthma and arthritis. Bone broth can also support detoxification and help your pet better deal with exposure to environmental or household pollutants that can be irritating — for example, chemicals found on your furniture or carpets, dust, mould, additives in their food, etc.

While there’s limited evidence about how well it might work to reverse certain disease symptoms, some people also choose to use bone broth for dogs with cancer, pancreatitis, kidney disease and other health issues. The rich supply of nutrients from bone broth may help reduce symptoms like fatigue, weakness, swelling and dehydration.

5. Free of Common Allergens (Like Dairy and Grains)

If you typically give your dog grain-free dog food, then you’ll be happy to know that bone broth is unlikely to trigger allergies, easy to digest and a good addition to your pet’s normal meals. Traditional bone broth is not made with any grains, gluten or other common food allergens like dairy. If your dog is allergic to fish/shellfish, opt for chicken or beef bone broth that is typically well-tolerated.
