The deal with EggShells

    I heard/read different opinions about Egg shells.
    Whats the best way to prepare it? raw vs boiled , ground vs whole, with egg whites vs without.
    does it help with thickening of the dog's ears?
    will it cause any problems like injuring the digestive tract lining?
    how many times a week?

    I know nothing about feeding egg shells to dogs, but nothing about raw eggs or egg shells seems to be a good idea. I would really research this idea and develop a risk/benefit analysis before doing this. Egg shells are predominately calcium carbonate and there are other proven safe methods for increasing calcium in a shiba's diet-if that is the goal.

    Akuma has relatively thin ears compared to some Shibas I see online and a dog owner I met suggested Egg shells. and it seem to be a cheap accessible source of calcium that otherwise you will be throwing in the trash.
