When feeding raw food to your dog or cat, it is important that they get enough calcium.
Scottish canine eggshell powder is a natural source of calcium to supplement your dog or cat's daily nutrition.
The eggshell powder contributes to the neutralisation of excess phosphorus in a meat diet.
The powder can also be used as a supplement in a bone-free diet. When your dog or cat needs extra calcium, such as during pregnancy, growth or lactation, the eggshell powder can ensure that the calcium level is brought back up to level.
Middle aged and older pets
As our pets start to get older, like us humans, their body's start to draw calcium from our own bones leaving them with a deficiency, more brittle and easier to deteriorate and break.
When we look at our own older generation we hear about broken wrists and broken hips, it doesn't take much for this to happen and this is the result of weak bone structures as we get older.
As a preventative and for basically future proofing our pets we recommend using eggshell powder from puppy age onward to ensure your pet gets the calcium their body needs.
Nutrients in Eggshells
Eggshells are high in calcium, an essential nutrient when feeding a raw diet.
Besides building strong bones, calcium plays an important role in several other bodily functions.
Calcium aids in circulation, hormone distribution, muscular movement, neuron transmission and intracellular communication.
Eggshells also contain strontium, which may support bone health, and magnesium, which is good for bones, regulates blood pressure and keeps the heart beating steadily.
How Eggshells Can Improve Your Dogs Diet
Eggshells are a natural way to boost your dog's intake of bone-friendly nutrients.
Dogs in the wild would get calcium through eggs they raid from nests and by chewing their preys bones.
Feeding your dog eggshell powder with his raw diet would be a massive addition and just one level teaspoon of eggshell powder provides enough extra calcium for the whole day.
Receiving the right amount of calcium can also prevent arthritis in later years.
Are eggshells safe for my pet?
The short answer is yes however there’s a good reason why Scottish canine have their powdered eggshell tested for salmonella and other bacteria before packaging and why there is a market for it in the first place.
Although we can simply cook our own leftover eggshell at a high temperature to eliminate the risk of contamination and if done properly there shouldn’t be a problem.
Eggshell can contain salmonella however this is very rare and isolated.
In rare cases it's possible for eggshells to be contaminated with salmonella the same way the raw egg inside can contain pathogens and for that reason we send samples from every batch for analysis just to be clear that we are providing a 100% safe to consume product to our customers.
Powdered eggshell is easily digested by your pet and completely safe to swallow, the size of grain we chose is important as we all know eggshell can have jagged corners if not grinded properly.
The average grain size is 1200 microns or smaller.
