Raw , scrambled, hard boiled , in a bone shape if you feel creative , all of these ways are perfectly safe to feed eggs to your dog , plus you can add in the shell ! Yup even the shell . Simply blend it up and add it to the bowl for some extra minerals.
Eggs are rich on protein and each part offers health benefits.
Shell - rich in calcium at magnesium . Make sure to only give the shell of fresh eggs as grocery stores often spray their eggs with chemicals to make them shiny. We dont want to feed that to our dog.
Yolk- provides Biotin wich is a vitamin that supports healthy skin, metabolism, cells, and digestion.
White -Great for dogs skin and coat because of its amino contents.
Simply adding a few sardines to your dog’s regular meals once a week can help develop muscles and other connective tissue, boost their immune system with their high content of Omega-3 fatty acids , increase dental health, and protect against kidney disease.
These fishies are small, which means they have less mercury content than other fish, diminishing the risk of poisoning. Sardines are also soft-boned, so you can usually feed them to your pup whole depending on its size which makes for added convenience.
Make sure you read the label and avoid ingredients like salt, artificial flavours, spices, or sardines packed in oil.
Did you know ? Any mammal can safely consume raw goat milk but not cows milk. so next time you want to treat your dog to some milk or use it in a recipe, try goat’s milk instead. Not only is goat’s milk safe for dog’s, but it’s healthy and highly recommended!
Goat milk helps with digestion, nutrient absorption, aids in filtering out toxins and is a good immune system boost.
In addition, goat’s milk also provides:

- B vitamins - support a healthy metabolism, digestion, and hormone regulation
- Vitamin A - maintains eye health and cell function
- Protein - provides amino acids needed to run the whole body
TIP : Kibble diets benefit the most from this moisture boost but its also a great booster for raw diets.
Fruits and veggies
Fruits & Veggies
Let's see what benefits fruits and vegetables have.
Apples are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your dog
Bananas are a great treat and bonus points for it being low-calorie. They’re high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and they are also low in cholesterol and sodium.
Cantaloupe is packed with nutrients, low in calories, and a great source of water and fiber.
*We suggest giving bananas and cantalope as a treat because they have a high level of sugar
Carrots are also an excellent low-calorie snack that is high in fiber and beta-carotene, which produces vitamin A. Plus, munching on a carrot stick is great for your dog’s teeth (and keeps them busy for a few minutes).
By the way, check out the list of fruits and vegetables that your pet can and cannot eat.
If you want to feed your dog the healthiest pumpkin, then you should buy plain canned pumpkin. Avoid the pumpkin pie filling as it contains too much sugar and other ingredients. The ingredients list should say Pumpkin only .
Feeding your dog food with high amounts of vitamins A, C, E and K are essential for maintaining good health, mainly protecting against heart disease and cancer.
Pumpkin itself has high amounts of an amino acid cucurbitacin, which is actually toxic to many common dog parasites and has been used to expel worms in ruminating animals. Parasites, such as tapeworms, can disturbed and damage the dogs digestive system and cause unpleasant symptoms such as weight loss, nutrient deficiency, dry skin, and a rough coat.
Bone broth is loaded with collagen, gelatin, protein ,minerals and most importantly .glucosamine. Not only does bone broth contain super amazing amounts of glucosamine, it’s also packed with other joint protecting compounds like chondroitin and hyaluronic acid.

Apple cider vinegar
You have most likely seen Apple cider vinegar (ACV) be the answer to a problem . It seems to be a miracle liquid! From helping with digestion, clearing skin , weight loss and even cleaning dirty windows . But can it do any good for your dog?
ACV may be able to help with regulating your dogs blood sugar levels . Studies show that consuming apple cider vinegar for 8 to 12 weeks can reduce blood sugar levels. This could help prevent diabetes .. or in an already diabetic dog, could mean he needs less insulin.
There are a number of cardiovascular benefits to apple cider vinegar. The acetic acid that is present in ACV can help reduce high lipid levels and high blood pressure. This can lead to better heart health for your dog.
The fermentation process used for raw ACV makes it a useful prebiotic not only for humans but for dogs as well. ACV’s prebiotic properties support the good bacteria in the gut, helping with digestion and keeping the dogs gut nice and healthy.
I think its safe to say the answer is yes. Your dog can also benefit from Apple cider vinegar.
