If I have leftover egg yolks from a recipe I toss the yolks into the dogs dinner.

Tell me about it!! when my daughter was over from the US last year she would cook herself 6 boiled eggs for breakfast then throw the yolks away.
If only she'd separated the eggs first, I could have frozen them and when needed, defrosted and used them in mayo. TSK!!!

The yolks are also great for making a rich ice cream without having to add a ton of heavy cream.

Actually the egg whites are worse than the egg yolks. Egg whites destroy
the biotin in your body.

I believe that is only if the egg whites are eaten raw, cooking the eggs negates the possible side-effects.

True, the egg whites must be eaten raw to have this potential effect. Also, there are so many sources of biotin in common foods and the body needs so little, harm from this is rare.
