Turkey broth/stock

What is the difference between turkey broth and turkey stock? Does anyone have a recipe for this using a turkey breast carcass/bones? I need something with no flavorings just basically turkey and water. I'm going to be feeding this to my sick cat so I don't want any flavor except for the turkey itself. Also, I heard that cooking the bones will cause them to splinter, is there any truth to that?

I won't try to answer the stock/broth question...

Take your carved out chicken/turkey carcass and dump it in enough boiling water to cover it, reduce to simmer and cook 20-30 minutes...

Remove the carcass, and in this case you'd want to strip whatever fragments of meat off...discard the bones and cartilage, which are pretty much "done" for food value at this point...

You might want to run the stock through a sieve or collander to remove any unseen bone bits..you can always return any meat scraps afterwards, seeing this is for your cat...

I'd try feeding this to the cat in very small amounts until I was sure its "constitution" was up to the possibly "runny" effects of this twist in diet; if all else fails, you can always "tweak this up a bit: with parsley, garlic, etc, freeze it and use it yourself...

lbb87, poultry bones all can splinter once they have been cooked. This is why it is dangerous to give your pet any poultry bone that has been cooked. If you are just making a broth out of the bones don't worryabout it, kitty will not get any bone bits worth worrying about. Hope it feels better soon.

"Stock" is made with bones (and meat)

"Broth" is made with no bones, just meat.
