How To Prepare Eggs When Feeding Natural Homemade Pet Food
- Eggs are a little different from meat in preparation.
- They should not be fed raw too often as the raw egg white can cause a loss of biotin (a B–vitamin).
- To prevent the loss of biotin, eggs should be soft boiled to kill the avidin which is the cause of the biotin problem.
- As a guideline, use approximately 1 egg for every 10 to 15 pounds your dog or cat weighs — but this is only a guide. Your pet may want, need or like more eggs than you think.
- Bring some water to a boil in a saucepan.
- Once boiling, remove from the heat.
- Add the eggs and let them soak in the hot water for 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes, remove the eggs and crack them in the bowl or on the plate to stop the cooking process.
- Although raw food is best, in this case, the slight cooking still allows the egg to maintain plenty of nutrients while helping to kill the avidin.
- I like to feed eggs on cold days because the eggs are guaranteed to be warm.
- It is a good idea to keep eggs on hand.
- Should you forget to thaw some meat, at least you have eggs ready to go in the fridge.
- The preparation of the eggs is complete. Time for feeding.
Eggs are a wonderful food to feed especially since free range eggs are now readily available!
Free range eggs are relatively affordable, nutritious, pure and healthy.
While eggs contain cholesterol, they also contain lecithin which naturally emulsifies the cholesterol.
