So you may be thinking, egg whites are high in protein and low in fat, they must be good for my dog! But not so fast!
Egg whites contain avidin, which inhibits biotin, a vitamin that is essential for cell growth, metabolism, healthy skin, and more in dogs. You would have to feed your dog a large amount of egg whites over a prolonged period of time but why take the chance?
Whole Eggs are a great source of very digestible protein, riboflavin, and selenium. For some dogs that are prone to digestive upset, eggs can give them a little protein boost. Adding eggs to your dog’s food is a healthy treat. So why waste the yolk, toss it in your dogs food along with the whites and let them enjoy this healthy snack.
