Treats Anyone? Egg is a Perfect Whole Food Treat

Think Eggs.

If you're currently using pet store treats offer egg instead. By doing so you improve your companion animal's diet and you avoid all the nasty food additives.

How to Serve Raw Egg

It's so simple!

Crack the egg shell on the side of your dog's food bowl.
Place the entire egg (white yolk and cracked shell) in the bowl and let your dog enjoy!

Don't worry about the edges of the cracked egg shell. The cracked shell won't cut your dog's mouth. Your dog will crunch the shell up. Egg shell in large or small pieces won't harm a dog's mouth or gastrointestinal track.

If your dog doesn't like the shell give her the egg white and yolk. But don't throw the sell out! You'll see further below the shell has other nutritional uses.

Most cats aren't interested in crunching through cracked egg shell. A kitty's interest is in the white and yolk!

If the raw egg is for a cat or small dog:
  • Crack the egg.
  • Place the egg white and yolk in a small bowl.
  • Whisk the egg and yolk together then serve.
  • You can store the raw whisked egg in a small glass container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

Important Note

1.0 Use of Foods, Herbs, Alternative Medicines:

Safe use of items and protocols in the article above, is your sole responsibility.

Foods, herbs and alternative medicines have health issue, condition and conventional drug interactions. Safe use of all substances and protocol are your responsibility.

Before you use any substance or protocol do your research. Check for cautions, contradictions, interactions and side effects. Do not use substances or protocols not suitable to your animal's individual circumstances.

If your animal has an underlying condition substances and protocols may conflict.

2.0 Definition of Holistic…

Food, herbs, alternative medicines are NOT ‘holistic’ they are a substance and MAY, or may NOT be ‘NATURAL’.

If you use a ‘natural’ substance (ie. an herb) you are using a natural substance, not a holistic substance.

Holistic is not defined by use of one or several substances. Holistic is an approach.

Definition of “holistic” from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus © Cambridge University Press


"relating to the whole of something or to the total system instead of just to its parts"

"Holistic medicine attempts to treat the whole person, including mind and body, not just the injury or disease."

Holistic is a way of approaching life, and within that health, and well-being.

3.0 Expectation a natural substance remedies a health or behavioral situation.

A natural substance used to treat symptoms. But, if factors causing the underlying issue remain you do not have a remedy.

Remedy requires a comprehensive approach. It is necessary to identify root cause. Remove items that trigger, cause or otherwise contribute to issues. Holistic approach includes design, implementation to treat, remedy and maintain long-term health.
