Only the Best for Man’s Best Friend

As we worry about our own health and what we eat, we also worry about what we feed our pets. Just remember EB eggs can be an important source of nutrition not just for your human family, but your pet family too! 

Feeding eggs whole, the way nature intended, goes a long way to counteract harmful imbalances. Traditionally, dogs and cats in the outdoors have eaten eggs straight from a bird’s nest with no worry about nutritional value or whether they might choke on the shell. But domesticated cats and dogs do not have the same access to bird nests as they did in the past. But giving them Eggland’s Best eggs is even better for your furry friend’s health! Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs offer more nutrition and more benefits that are key to your pet’s health. 

Eggland’s Best eggs are a great source of protein and provide better nutrition than ordinary eggs. EB eggs have 4 x the vitamin D, 10 x the vitamin E, 3 x more B12 and more than double the omega 3 than ordinary eggs, helping to build your pet’s muscles and strengthen their fur coats. Biotin, one of the B vitamins in EB Eggs, is important for cellular growth, fatty acid metabolism and a radiant fur coat. EB egg yolks are chalk full of good vitamins and minerals, so don’t shy away from feeding your dog the whole egg on a regular basis! Even EB eggshells can be an excellent source of calcium and protein for your pet. To help grow strong bones and teeth, crush the eggshells and sprinkle about a half teaspoon into your pet’s regular food. * It is not recommended to serve your dog or cat raw eggs.

For a quick and easy way to feed EB eggs to your pet, just pick up Eggland’s Best Hard Cooked Peeled Eggs at your local super market.  The cooked EB eggs can be diced and mixed into your dog’s usual food or just fed to them as a delicious snack. They’ll love you even more for this!

Or if you’re feeling adventurous try out this great treat recipe!

  • 2 ripe bananas

  • 1/4 cup water 

Directions:

Preheat the over to 350°F.

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until the dough looks like a bunch of little dough balls (about 1 mintue).

*If the dough is crumbly, add a little water ( we added ¼ cup). If it’s too sticky, add a little flour.

Gather the dough and form into a ball.

Place on a lightly floured surface and roll it out to about 1/4-inch thickness.

Use a cookie cutter to make cute shapes or just a knife to cut squares or strips.

You can always gather the scraps and roll the dough out again and again until its all used.

Place the treats on a baking sheet and bake 30 minutes to make hard treats. Let cool completely then reward your four legged friend!
