How to Make Egg Powder for Dogs (Easy Steps & Complete Guide)

Eggs are a common protein that’s nutritious for canines to consume. But, as with anything that’s high in fat and cholesterol, you want to watch how much you give to your beloved pooch. This is true whether you give your dog actual eggs or egg powder.

That said, egg powder takes a little bit different treatment and preparation. But you can use it in almost any homemade dog food recipe. Knowing how to make egg powder for dogs isn’t difficult. But you will have to know what the conversion rate is if you plan to use it instead of real eggs.

How Much Powdered Egg Makes Up One Real Egg?

To replace a real egg with egg powder, it takes two tablespoons mixed with water that measures out to two tablespoons plus two teaspoons. But, that’s if you plan on replacing it with your regular dog food recipe. There might be some recipes that will simply include egg powder, such as the furikake seasoning recipe for dogs listed below.

How Much Powdered Egg Is Safe Enough for Dogs to Consume at One Time?

Moisture is the only thing that separates powdered egg from real eggs. Therefore, the same rules apply when feeding either type to your dog. No more than three eggs in a batch of dog food you intend to give over the course of a week. This means your dog shouldn’t consume more than 7½ tablespoons of egg powder in under seven days.

However, you should really gauge this amount on how active and fit your dog is. Obviously, younger and more athletic beefcakes will be able to consume more egg powder than aging toy dogs that spend their days cuddled up next to their owner.

Are There Any Dog Food Recipes that Include Egg Powder?

The three recipes below include only egg powder, not real eggs. These are delicious, nutritious and good for your furry family member to eat. If you don’t like the selections here, hopefully it will inspire you to create your own. But, remember, you can use it in any recipe you already make for your dogs, these are merely suggestions.

Furikake Seasoning for Dogs

Furikake is a historic and time-honored food in Japan. Throughout many centuries, they used this to provide additional nutrients, calcium and vitamins that were lacking in the Japanese diet. While the real furikake is far too risky to give to your dog, this recipe is a perfect replacement.

This Japanese-inspired dog seasoning is a great accompaniment to white rice. It’s a perfect food for your pooch if you and your family are enjoying a night of Japanese cuisine. Plus, it can provide extra vitamins for dogs with upset stomachs.

Skin Allergy Special Diet

If your dog has skin allergies or contracts a skin reaction to something, you can feed it this dog food. You can use this to help treat the condition along with whatever ointment the vet prescribes. It’s best if you have cold chicken and rice in the fridge already cooked without seasonings.

Items You’ll Need

  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Measuring Cups & Spoons
  • Large Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Medium Saucepan

Ingredients

  • ½ Cup Cooked Chicken Livers, cubed  
  • ½ Cup Cooked Chicken Breast, cubed
  • 2½ Tbsp Egg Powder  
  • 1 Cup Cooked White Rice
  • ½ Cup Green Beans, chopped
  • ½ Cup Asparagus, chopped
  • ½ Cup Carrots, chopped
  • 1 tsp Rosemary, fresh or dried
  • 1 tsp Dill, fresh or dried
  • 4 Cups Water

Instructions

  1. Prepare the chicken if it’s uncooked before you begin the recipe. Boil the chicken if your dog has a sensitive stomach. Otherwise, you can sauté the chicken and livers in olive oil until well cooked through. Also prepare the white rice according to what the package instructs.
  2. When you have the chicken and rice ready to go, chop up all the veggies and fresh herbs, if using.
  3. Put water into a medium saucepan and steam or boil the veggies until fork tender, about 25 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the egg powder, rice, chicken, chicken livers, asparagus, green beans, carrots and herbs.
