Animals will eat almost anything we eat; Though in their natural state. They only have problems when we make some adjustments to that which is natural.

We also get picky; We develop some phobia for some kind of food right from birth. There are only a few instances when we finally have some love for the food. But in most cases, that does not happen. It is nonetheless surprising when domesticated animals like our dogs also become picky.

Having a phobia for a particular food is more ironic with our canine friends. That is because we know them to eat anything. However they indeed can be choosy. Though not in a general sense. Your dog may love a particular food, while your neighbor’s dog may not like the same food.

Now compare that with the nine thousand taste buds that we have.

So basically, dogs have way fewer taste buds to judge the bad taste that raw eggs have. Leave that to us who cannot stand the taste.
