Since cooking meat, grinding etc, was expensive, to add to the Chicken Soup Kibble, yes, Chicken soup, my dogs do well and with six dogs I need this.


I am cooking beef shank, bone in, chicken thighs, with kale, carrots, and celery to make broth, then after straining it thru cheese cloth, I am going to add it to their kibble.  No more canned dog food, no more cooking meat.  If, I add just veggies, they have peeing sessions .


Now , one of my dachsies who is about  10 or so, had another lump removed from her breast, (she was used for breeding  NOT BY ME) and spayed late in life, this one was malignant, but, all according to pathology was removed, including a portion of lymph tissue and nipple.

Now, she tested with elevated Alkaline Phospate, which, can be the beginning of Cushing's, so the vet, suggested I see a practicioner of alternative medicine.  I told her I know a women who is licensed, teaches acpuncture and homeopathy, in Mass, so, I always deferred to Marie Cargill, In Mass,  So, she is sending me some herbal formulas for Precious, as well as some cognitive formula for the other dachshund who is a senior.


Anyway, any feedback on the broth??  I also put vinegar in the broth to remove the marrow from the bones.

Vinegar can cause frequent urination.Did they do a urinalysis ? How alkaline was the urine? You might need to add blueberries or cranberries to counteract the vinegar.

add about 1/2 tsp or so of lemon juice as that will draw out the calcium from the bones into the broth. Just found that on a recipe site so have used it in my chicken soup. Cant' wait for first cold weekend to make my soup as it simmers and fills the whole house with its wonderful aroma.

I did not put the soup on their kibble.  Changed my mind, I mentioned the vinegar only as to remove some marrow from the bones,  other than that, they do not get anything with vinegar in it.  Now, I do drink pure unfiltered apple cider vinegar, have for years.

When I make Chicken soup for my family, I will add the lemon juice.
