Why You Should Be Feeding Your Pets Eggs

Eggs make an excellent daily food or special treat for dogs and cats.  They are basically the healthiest thing you can feed your pet.  Keep reading to find out why.

Eggs are high in protein.
Eggs are are one of the most complete sources of amino acids, the building blocks of protein.  Regularly feeding them to your pets is a great way to boost the protein in their diets.

Eggs are LOADED with nutrients - they're a Superfood.

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.

Healthy skin can not only boost your self-esteem; it can also be an indication of good overall health.  Considering the ever-expanding nature of the skincare market, it is more important than ever to be educated about what is available on the market and what goes into the products you use.  While there are no regulations surrounding what beauty products can and cannot be labeled “natural,” the designation of “natural” typically indicates that the product only utilizes naturally occurring materials, and true natural skincare products often boast a wide array of benefits and uses that go far beyond basic skincare.
