Turkey bone broth is a fantastic way to provide your furry friend with a host of benefits that support their overall health and wellbeing. Not only does it promote bone and joint health, but it also helps to maintain a healthy gut and supports liver detoxification. Additionally, this recipe is a great way to use up the leftover turkey carcass and scraps after the holidays. It's important to note that heavily seasoned turkey, as well as ingredients like onions and garlic, should be avoided when making the bone broth for your pup. However, by adding in leftover giblets and neck from your turkey, you can create a rich and flavorful broth that is packed with essential nutrients for your furry friend. Remember to always consult with your veterinarian before making any changes to your dog's diet or introducing new foods, and if you have any concerns about their health or wellbeing.

○ COOKING TIME: 3 hours minimum
○ SERVING: ~ 4 quartz (16 cups)
 Leftover Turkey Carcass
 Carrots, Peeled and Chopped
 Sticks of Celery, Cut into Chunks
 Handful of Parsley
Enough Water to Cover the Bones
Using a large pan add the leftover turkey carcass. If the turkey doesn’t fit, you can cut off legs at the joints and arrange into a pan so it fits. You can also make this in a pressure cooker to save time, or use a crock pot / slow cooker.
Add the carrots, celery, parsley, giblets and enough water to cover the bones.
Bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer and cover with a lid for 3 hours minimum - the longer you can let it simmer the better - just check on water levels.
Scrap off any froth/foam that bubbles on the top and discard.
Turn off the heat and leave to cool slightly.
Carefully pour the liquid through a fine sieve / muslim cloth into a large bowl (There will be meat left on the the bones if you want to pick that off once cooled and use in our turkey and rice dog food recipe - just always be careful to check for any small bones).
Cover the broth with cling wrap and place in the fridge to chill overnight.
Once cold the fat will rise to the top, skim that all off then you will be left with just the broth.
Freeze in small bags to portion up, or use an ice cube tray to freeze as small treats or some extra nutrition to daily meals.
