Can Dogs Eat Boiled Eggs?
If you are taking the traditional route this Easter and have decided to make some good old colored Easter eggs then its only natural to wonder if your dog can and should eat them.
So, Can Dogs Eat Boiled Eggs?
Of course they can!
Eggs are full of protein and are considered are great additive to a dogs meal. Some people even say they believe eggs make their dogs fur shiney and soft. I personally add a raw or cooked egg to my dogs food at least once a week sometimes even up to 3 times a week.
Raw eggs are said to create a Biotin deficiancy in all the species of pets and animals. Personally i dont think that one raw egg per week will do any harm at all especially because the yolk of the egg is high in Biotin. Its a good idea to confirm with your doctor.
Boiled eggs however are not effected because through the boiling process the egg white which has a coumpound inside of it called Avidin (the glycoprotein that clings to Biotin and makes it really hard to be digested and assimilated) Is basically destroyed and hence Biotin deficiancy can not occur and what is left is a great tasting egg along with the proteins.
Take 2 eggs and boil for 3 minutes on high. Once the eggs have cooled you can crack and peel the shell, cut them into quarters and mix into your dogs kibble.
Boil 2 eggs on high for 3 minutes, allow to cool. Cook half a cup of rice with 1 cup water for 10 minutes. Crack and peel the egg shells cut them into chunky pieces, add another half cup of water to the rice along with the eggs, turn the heat of, give it a stir and allow to cool.
