Chicken Broth Benefits

Joint pain relief

Chicken broth includes two primary ingredients which can relieve joint discomfort. Glucosamine is the first and chondroitin the second. For dogs with arthritis, these two ingredients are definitely recommended. The problem is that the additions can be costly. One great choice is to feed the chicken breast for your dog.



Arginine is a prescribed treatment for congestive heart failure in dogs. Chicken broth contains plenty of arginines that improve cardiac health for your puppy.


Rich in amino acids

Every day most dogs eat the same thing. It doesn’t matter if the food is well-balanced. The problem though is that it can cause certain deficiencies in amino acids. A number of amino acids, including glycine, are found in chicken broth. Giving your dog a little chicken broth is a great way to make up for the missing amino acids.


Gives a lustrous and healthy fur coat

Just like chicken broth contains a good variety of amino acids, it also includes a wide range of micronutrients, which will help keep your dog’s coat on point!


Boosts brain health 

Glycine offers multiple health benefits, but one of the biggest is that it can improve your dog’s brain health too apart from bone health. Glycine is a neurotransmitter that can help your pets with OCD, depression, stress and even separation anxiety.

Easy Steps


Put the chicken pieces in a large pot with enough water to cover the chicken by one or two inches on top. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid.


Boil the chicken until it separates easily from the bones.


Remove chicken from the water onto a platter, separate the meat from the bones and keep the bones separate to give them to your pet.


Allow the chicken to cool down on a platter.

Ingredients List
  • Chicken (whole or pre-cut): 1
  • Brown or white rice: 1 cup
  • Peas : 1/2 cup
  • Carrots: 1/2 cup
  • Cut green beans (not French cut): 1 cup

Now pour the rice and vegetable pieces into the broth, stir gently and bring to a boil on low flame. If you are adding fresh veggies like beets, then make sure to add them 15 minutes before you add the rice. Cover the pot and let the veggies and rice cook.


The rice should not absorb the stock too much. If too much stock does seem to get absorbed, then add some more water.


Add the chicken while the rice cooks. Cover the pot and let it simmer for approximately five minutes, or until the veggies are soft.


Remove the stew from the heat and stir. Allow the stew to cool down and serve. Store the leftover stew in an airtight container in the freezer.
