To EGG or not to Egg Your Pet??

To EGG or not to Egg Your Pet??

I'm frequently asked whether people should feed their pets eggs, and whether cooked or raw??

YES 🥚and RAW! ✅🍳

Eggs are a great protein boost and contain other goodies like iron, selenium and A and B vitamins. Cooking destroys some of the nutritional value so raw, fresh and free range is best 🐔 1-2 times a week is perfect.

Why do some people say NO to feeding eggs? There is a very low risk of salmonella bacteria (we're talking 1 in 20,000+) which is lowered further if you use fresh, free range eggs. Egg white also contains a small amount of a protein which can inhibit the absorption of some B vitamins and biotin. The amount required to cause a deficiency would be significant - so the risk of this being caused by a couple of eggs per week is teeny.

We at Gourmet Pet Food Australia encourage your dogs get free range organic eggs twice a week in their feed. How about yours?
