How to make bone stock

Bone stock is easy to make and a great way to supply calcium and minerals to your dog. I also like to make bone stock because nothing goes to waste and the end product is very nutritious. So save your chicken bones and get ready to fire up the crock-pot as I show you how to make chicken bone stock.


Crock pot to make bone stock

What do you need to get started making bone stock?

  • chicken bones
  • enough water to cover the chicken bones
  • 1-2 tablespoons of organic Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar
  • 48-72 hours of patience as it cooks

Bone Stock is Easy to Make

Save all your chicken bones and turkey bones for that matter. Put them all in your crock-pot and add enough water to cover the bones. Then add a tablespoon or two of organic Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar┬áto the mix and set your covered crock-pot on low. Allow it to cook for 48-72 hours. Check it every day and add a little water if needed. Allow the bone stock to cool. After the bone stock is cool you will find that the bones crumble easily and are soft.

When we prepare bone stock for ourselves we strain out the bones and herbs and save the clear stock. We freeze it or refrigerate it for use later in soups and stews.

For your dog I recommend blending it in a blender or food processor. Pulverizing the bone stock makes a highly nutritious calcium rich ingredient to use for dog food recipes. As you can see it turns into a mineral rich “bone shake”, yum!

    Hello. thinking about switching my older dogs to a cooked or raw diet – haven’t decided which one yet. can the bone stock be frozen in either ice cube trays or something else to make it into a frozen treat to give dogs during the summer?
