Bone broth is a nutrient-dense broth made from the bones of animals using water, bones, and vegetables. The multi-day cooking process extracts nutrients such as collagen from the bones, which differentiates it from regular broths.
Humans have enjoyed Bone Broth for hundreds of years as part of a healthy diet…why can’t man’s best friend enjoy it too? Bone broth contains incredible health properties that both humans and dogs benefit from.
Our bone broth:
- is easy to digest,
- moistens dry food to ease chewing for senior dogs,
- boosts flavors of ordinary food for picky eaters,
- hydrates and nourishes,
- contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives,
- contains added glucosamine and chondroitin to support joint health, and
- the natural nutrients can contribute to your dog’s overall health.
Brutus Broth has been masterfully formulated to provide maximum taste and nutrition for your dog. Unlike other Broths on the market, we fortify Brutus Broth with chondroitin and glucosamine to support your dog’s joint health.
Brutus Broth is low sodium and does not contain ingredients that are harmful to dogs such as garlic and onions. Additionally, Brutus Broth is fortified with glucosamine and chondroitin for your pup’s joint health.
Yes! Brutus Broth contains 0.1% sodium. In order to make our broth shelf stable we need to add sea salt. We use the finest, trace amount of sea salt in Brutus Broth to ensure the proper pH is achieved to keep our product safe for consumption. Furthermore, like humans, dogs need some sodium. Generally speaking, most veterinarians use the following categories when discussing low-sodium diets:
- Dogs with no sodium restrictions require food with at least 0.5% sodium content (>100mg sodium/100kCal)
- Dogs who require mild sodium restriction should be offered foods with between 0.35% and 0.5% sodium content (80 to 100mg/100kCal)
- Dogs who require moderate sodium restriction should only receive foods with between 0.1% and 0.35% sodium content (50 to 80mg/100kCal)
- Dogs who require severe sodium restriction should be offered food with less than 0.1% sodium content (<50mg/100kCal)
No, none of our broths contain onions or garlic.
Although Brutus Broth will not spoil after 30 days, it will start to lose its flavor. Many of our customers like to freeze extra Brutus Broth into ice cubes to warm up later or to treat their dog to a tasty “pupsicle!" If you feed your dog our broth past the 30 day mark it will not harm them in any way.
We find most finicky dogs like Brutus Broth to be gently warmed, but most dogs enjoy it at any temperature. It even makes a wonderful frozen treat! *Please test the temperature before giving to your dog.
Brutus Broth does not need to be refrigerated until after it is opened. It is good in your pantry, cabinet or on your shelf until the sell by date (we have a shelf life of 2 years so no worries about stocking up!). After opening, the broth is good for 30 days refrigerated.
We recommend serving approximately 1/4 cup of broth per 25 pounds of body weight per meal. Adjust per your pet's needs. Refer to our feeding guide to determine how much Brutus Broth to serve your dog.
Like any new food, we recommend introducing Brutus Broth into your dog’s existing diet slowly. It can be used to reconstitute dehydrated food, moisten kibble, and be mixed into raw or homemade food.
