How to Make Homemade Dog Food With Crushed Egg Shells

by Sandy Vigil
 

Grind up eggshells to add to your tasty doggy meatloaf.

Crushed eggshells provide necessary calcium for your dog. You can add eggshells to homemade dog food recipes with or without the eggs. Rather than waste the eggs, use them for additional protein. Doggy meatloaf shares many of the same ingredients that you use for your own dinner. It also contains vegetables and grains to make it a complete meal.
