Eggs: Good For Pets Or not?

Eggs contain high-quality proteins like riboflavin and selenium and are an excellent source of iron, essential vitamins and minerals. It is a superfood to be precise. Give a hardboiled egg to your dog daily and you will never have to face issues like a dry and dull fur coat, chipping nails or weak muscles. The good proteins and vitamins boost energy levels in your pets and impart shiny, lustrous fur that your pet won’t get even after a number of salon sessions.

Do you know eggshells are loaded with calcium and proteins and are highly recommended for strong bones in pets? Next time you think of throwing them away, just save it for your pet.  Crush them and sprinkle some over your regular pet food.

Raw eggs, however, must be avoided as most of the people relate them with salmonella poisoning in pets. Moreover, eggs in their raw form have not been proved to have any remarkable health benefit. So better boil the eggs to kill the germs, if any and be on a safer side. Crush the dried shells and stock it up in an airtight vessel to save yourself from daily grinding.

On Easter Day, egg finding is the most celebrated activity with kids and parents going crazy about it. Well, if you want to involve your pooch into this kinda fun you need to take care that you don’t use toxic colors to decorate the eggshells. Toxic-colors can prove hazardous to your pet.  Instead, use edible colors and make the Easter safe for your furry friend. Some people also make chocolate Easter eggs which are a strict no-no. Chocolates create havoc in pets so better stay clear of it if you have a pet at home.

To conclude, eggs are nutritious, full of energy and a delightful treat for our pets. Only, you need to give them in their boiled form. So, celebrate this Easter with your pet safely. Make merry and feed him lots of eggs because an Egg a day also keeps the vet away.
