Eating eggs provides your pet with essential vitamins and minerals that are difficult to get elsewhere in such high levels, including:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B12
  • Riboflavin
  • Folate
  • Selenium
  • Fatty Acids

Excellent for your pet's skin, coat, teeth, and bones.
The dense nutrients in eggs support skin and coat health for both dogs and cats.  Eggs also help build and maintain strong bones and teeth.

Calms Upset Stomachs
Eggs are easy to digest and are a healthy way to settle a pet's upset stomach.  When eaten regularly, eggs can also improve chronic digestive issues.
