Spanish Omelette For Older Dogs

Recipe By Dr. Joe Inglis 

Perfect for Older Dogs

It’s ideal as an occasional treat, just to put a bit of bounce back into those old legs.


Eggs are sometimes referred to as ‘the perfect protein source’ because they contain such a well-balanced mix of amino acids, making them easy to digest and use.

This is very important for older dogs, as any waste left behind in the body from eating less good proteins, such as beef, can damage the kidneys.

This simple Omelette recipe uses a beef stock cube to add a bit of meaty taste, and potato and carrot for carbohydrate and vitamins.

For a two-dog Omelette, you will need:

4 eggs

A little milk

1 stock cube

Olive oil

1 potato

1 carrot


Dice the carrot and potato and boil them for about 7-8 minutes – until they are just about edible but not too soft.

Then heat up a little olive oil in a good non-stick frying pan and gently fry the veg until it is browned and tender.

Beat the eggs with a little milk and the stock cube in a large mixing bowl.

When the veg is done, pour into the egg mixture and mix together.

Then add a little more oil to the pan and heat until it is just smoking, pour in the egg and veg mixture.

 Cook for about five minutes, shaking gently from side to side to keep it from sticking, and then turn over, using a plate.

Do the other side with a little more oil and then turn out onto a plate and allow to cool.
