Bone Broth Recipe
In this video blog, Dr. Amanda will guide you through making bone broth for your pets. Bone broth is both nutritious and delicious and can help pets with decreased appetite get the nutrients they desperately need. It is also a great way to add in your NHV supplements.
Bone broth is so easy to make and can be stored in the freezer for long periods. You may also wish to put some in a ice cube tray for easy to access small portions to add to each meal.
- ~2lbs of chicken bones
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 2 stalks of celery, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of ginger, grated
- 1 teaspoon of light salt (optional)
- Enough filtered water to cover the bones
Add all ingredients to a large pot
Bring mixture to a boil for 2 minutes
Stir, then turn temperature to low and simmer for 6 hours
Let broth cool, strain and store in the freezer to thaw as needed.
You can add any NHV supplements your pet needs to your bone broth. Dr. Amanda has added 3 supplements which are great for any pet, no matter their medical concerns.
Turmeric is known as a “super food”. NHV Turmeric is full of antioxidants, it is an excellent anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antibacterial. Studies have shown the use of turmeric to lower rates of certain types of cancer. It can also be helpful for autoimmune diseases.
NHV Multi Essentials

NHV Natures Immuno
