ABOUT THIS RECIPE
Turkey bone broth is great for dogs as it supports bone and joint health, promotes a healthy gut and also helps the liver to detox! Plus over the Holidays this is a good way to use up the leftover carcass and scraps. I would only recommend making this recipe though if your turkey is not heavily seasoned. Things like onions and garlic are not good for dogs. Remember if you don’t use the giblets and neck for a gravy then you can add these to the bone broth to boil up too.
○ 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.
