Are You Ready to Share Your Thanksgiving Meal?

In preparation for Thanksgiving and all the food festivities soon to begin, I have a simple recipe for you to share with your dog and cat, I call this treat “Mr. Moore’s Turkey Pops”.

It’s a simple recipe to use up all those wonderful leftover turkey bones from your meal. Funny thing, I never really cooked for myself much until recently. Mr. Moore (KIM Hearing Dog) has been struggling with so many allergy and immune issues as he ages so, I have been researching many natural ways to heal animals from the inside out.

Here is a very simple and nutritious broth made from the leftover turkey bones. I like to add Gelatin, as it contains collagen, which is the building block of joint tissue. Here is a recipe that incorporates collagen and the anti-inflammatory effects of ginger and turmeric. This “treat” can be used between meals as a snack or added to their meals to give them a real yummy boost.

It’s great for arthritic dogs or cats too!
