Three Additions to Your Pets Dry or Raw Food
1) Raw goat milk
2) Bone broth
Raw goat milk helps digestion and adds moisture to your pets diet. It’s important to feed this raw and not pasteurized otherwise this defeats the purpose of feeding it. Raw goat milk contains probiotics which improves your dogs gut health.
Bone broth also adds moisture to the dry food and can help with joints. There are a few brands that sell bone broth in pet stores. It's preferred to make bone broth from home because this method produces more gelatin and isn't watered down like store-bought brands. Homemade bone broth recipe and more benefits can be found here.
Sardines canned in water, without salt, add omega-3 fatty acids that are often missing from kibble and some raw diets. Omega-3's contribute to brain health and function, improve the coat and skin, and help balance omega-6's. An imbalance of omega-3 fatty acids and 6 can contribute to inflammation. Therefore, adding omega-3's can decrease inflammation in the body.
