Nutritional Data at a Glance- Eggs

October 4, 2022

Eggs have several nutritional and health benefits for dogs and cats that make it a great addition in your pet's diet. To learn more about the benefits of feeding eggs and egg shell membranes to your pets, read my article, "Can Dogs & Cats Eat Eggs? The Benefits of Feeding Your Pets Eggs & Egg Shell Membrane."

All nutritional data can be found on the United States Department of Agriculture FoodData Search site!

Below you will find data on some of the nutrients available in eggs, per 100g.

For macronutrients (carbs, calories, protein, fat, including energy in kcal, water, fiber & sugar) see the USDA's site (fatty acids are also detailed on their website). 

**µg = microgram**

**for some listings, you may see I included the Vitamin D nutritional info 2x; the 1st line with "IU" is the international measurement (which is sometimes on the label of some supplements), directly below that you may see Vitamin D again, but with "µg" which is just the measurements in micrograms!**

When following a strict BARF or PMR diet, some of the nutrients most commonly lacking are: 
Vitamin E
Vitamin D
