One way to kick-up the nutritional value of the food you are feeding your dog is to add raw eggs.
Raw eggs have long been recognized as a complete food. Crack open a fresh, raw, locally-sourced or organic egg over your dog’s regular food and see him or her devour it with delight. The shells are nutritious too – just dry them out and grind to a fine powder in a food processor, then sprinkle over the food. You can feed raw eggs several times a week.
Worried about the bacteria in a raw egg? Bacteria, especially salmonella should not be a problem as long as you are feeding fresh clean eggs that have been properly stored. Moreover, the dog’s gastrointestinal tract is designed to handle bacteria found in raw food. While you can feed cooked eggs, much of the nutrition is lost during cooking.
