Simply Good Eggs for Dogs Cats, Your Complete Guide to a Perfect Food

Are you looking for a simply good whole food to support your dogs and cat’s health?

Think simple.  Think “eggs.”

Eggs are a perfect food. Packed with essential bioavailable nutrients in a mineral-rich package.

Every part of an egg can contribute to your companion animal’s health. The egg yolk, egg white, eggshell membrane and the eggshell.

Dogs and cats can consume eggs raw with or without the shell or cooked no shell. Allow your dog and cat to choose her preference.

This article is Part I of  a Complete Guide to selecting and including eggs in your dogs and cat’s diet.

Nutritional Value of Eggs, A Perfect Food for Dogs and Cats

Eggs offer complete source of protein, essential fatty acids, essential minerals and vitamins.

Have you heard the saying “Eggs are a complete food”?  It’s true!

🥚Eggs are rich in protein complete with all nine essential amino acids:

  • Cysteine, histidine, isoleucine,  lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.

🥚Carotenoids important for eye health:

  • Lutein.
  • Zeaxanthin.

Important for overall health…

🥚Essential fatty acids:

  • Omega-3.
  • Omega-6.

🥚Essential  bioavailable minerals:

  • Calcium.
  • Iodine.
  • Magnesium.
  • Manganese.
  • Molybdenum.
  • Phosphorus.
  • Potassium.
  • Selenium.
  • Zinc.

🥚Essential bioavailable vitamins:

  • Vitamin A.
  • Vitamin B1, B2 (riboflavin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin) and B9 (folate).
  • Vitamin D.
  • Vitamin E.

🥚Choline, an essential micronutrient:

  • A dog and cat’s body doesn’t produce enough choline on it’s own. It’s important to provide choline-rich foods!

That’s impressive!

Dry kibble and canned food contain inorganic synthetic minerals. Difficult for the body to absorb.

Whole egg (complete with egg shell) helps re-mineralize your companion animal’s body.

Egg offers a simple, inexpensive opportunity to increase the quality of your dog and cat’s diet!
