How often should I add egg to my furry friend's dish? ?


There is a lot of controversy about whether or not to feed your furry friends raw eggs...

Good news:

YES, you can add raw eggs to their diet and not only that, but eggshells too!

Eggs are an ideal complement to add to your dog or cat's diet.

It is rich in high-quality proteins, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals and is super nutritious. This is very beneficial to improve hair, skin, increase muscle mass and generally improve your health .

Complementing the diet with eggs is especially indicated for cases such as:

  • Lactating or pregnant dogs and cats
  • Puppies from 3 months
  • Elderly dogs without immune problems
  • Very active dogs or athletes

There are many health benefits to consuming eggs regularly, however, we are often plagued by myths surrounding eating raw eggs. One of them is the one that says that when consuming raw eggs, the protein called 'Avidin' reduces the absorption of Biotin. This is not true since there is an excess of Biotin in the egg and, therefore, it counteracts the action of Avidin so there is no need to worry!

Others question the link between raw eggs and salmonella. A naturally fed dog or cat has a stomach full of good bacteria along with a stomach with a very acidic PH that makes this not a problem for them.

Of course, we must be careful not to overdo it, which is why we simply explain the amount of eggs per week that you can give your furry friend depending on his size.

*Our CRU menus are already complete and balanced so it is not necessary to add complements although they can always be beneficial.

If your dog or cat dislikes raw eggs, you can try passing them in a frying pan.

If your dog is not eating CRU or homemade BARF, chances are he is not consuming meaty bones. In this case, we recommend you also add the eggshell for a greater contribution of calcium and minerals.

Eye! This only works with ECO eggs. Crush the egg shell with a mortar until it is almost powder to facilitate the absorption of calcium or grind it together with the egg in an arm blender.

Do you dare to try it?

The CRU will be happy to try to resolve any questions you may have, but if your pet suffers from any pathology, we recommend that you consult with a registered veterinarian. Share:
