Bone Broth for you and your pet

It’s easier to whip up a batch of this superfood than you might think. Start with the highest quality ingredients you can afford, ideally organic, pastured chicken, beef, or bones. You can use a whole organic chicken (pets will enjoy the meat, too) or look for organic beef thigh bones (soup bones).

Simply fill your pot with pure water, add your meat and/or bones and a splash of vinegar. Acetic acid (vinegar) helps leech the minerals from the bones into the water. Let the mixture simmer for up to 4.5 hours.

At this point, the meat should be falling off the bone and you can remove it (and any skin) from the pot. Return the broth to the stove, add another splash of vinegar, and continue simmering for another 24 hours to be sure all the nutrition is pulled from the bones.

When the second round of broth is done, run it through a strainer to remove the cooked bones and bone fragments. You can either discard these or, as discussed in the recipe above, run them through a food processor and add them back into the broth.

With very little effort on your part, you’ll have a genuine superfood your pet will lap up that will also provide comfort and nutrition year-round (and as a bonus, human family members can enjoy it, too).

Bone Broth PopsiclesDirections. Make bone broth in a stock pot (see bone broth recipe here).; Separate broth from bones. Grind bones in food processor until pulverized. Mix pulverized bones with broth, pour into an ice cube tray, and freeze (Note: if your dog tends to swallow food without chewing it, freeze your broth in a loaf pan to prevent him from doing the same with the ice cubes)

Green Peas: Are They Safe for Your Pet?You can prepare green peas beforehand by steeping and then boiling them. In a study published in 1987, Pakistani peas that followed this two-step procedure had an 82% reduction of phytic acid. 18 Steeping is basically the process of soaking an ingredient in a liquid. 19 Soak the peas in water, preferably for an entire day, to remove the most phytates. .

Our caseload/hospitalizations in Otero County are still low, so we won’t be requiring masks for unvaccinated people in our larger space, but please continue to stay 6 ft from others. A good rule of thumb is to assume your training/yoga/aerobics partners are concerned. Please continue to wear a mask in our weight room if you are not vaccinated and aren’t the only one in there.

With a rise in COVID-19 cases, what precautions should you take?
