Eggshells. Save them! They’re going to come in handy. If you make eggs, save the shells. Once you have a bunch, you want to let them dry out, or you can always bake them in the oven on a cookie sheet at 300˚ F for 10 minutes. Once you have them dried or baked, crush the shells finely and add them to your dog’s meal daily. You can also crush them up and sprinkle into your dog’s meal. This especially helps if you’re not feeding bone and acts as a calcium supplement as well as benefits joints and bones.

Tyson did not eat bone, therefore we supplemented with either bone meal or eggshells. Howie currently eats raw with crushed eggshells already as a part of the pre-blended meal plan he gets. We recommend giving 1/2 tsp. per 1 cup of food given. If you use bone meal, that provides 1,200 mg calcium per tsp. (add 1/2 tsp. per meal). A bone meal supplement is easy to find on Amazon. If feeding bone, this supplement is not necessary.
