Thread: Raw Eggs... Good or Bad??

    It won't hurt them occasionally, but on a regular basis it's not a good thing.

    My boy gets an egg yolk after every dog show for some extra protein, doing it that often I definitely wouldn't give the white, but if it's only once a month or so it would be fine.

    Egg white is great protein. Egg yolk has all kinds of other great nutrients.

    My understanding is that while egg white does impede biotin absorption, the effect is not significant in the grand scheme of things. The overall benefits of egg proteins and other nutrients, in my estimation, outweigh the minor and brief downside.

    It would be different if they were living on them, but I would expect that 3 eggs per week or so should be quite fine(?)

    My dogs have always eaten whole raw eggs shell & all & pick them from the hay shed(where the naughty chooks lay)themselves so it would be hard to avoid them getting them too.
    I have heard scambled whole cooked eggs are better.

    Ours have a whole raw egg once a week, occasionally twice but not very often is it more than once.

    No issues here either, but gorgeous shiny coats,

    The yolk is good for them but you need to separate the whites out.

    Egg white when it is raw blocks the absorbtion of biotin... when they are cooked however they are fine.
    However, egg yolk has a lot of biotin in it so should compensate for the egg white blocking biotin absorption.

    Because of this, it is okay to feed whole eggs - but NEVER JUST egg white.

    It's an egg, a natural food source. I don't believe a lot of research, because in 20 years research will show the opposite.

    I give my dogs a raw egg 1-2 times per week and there has been no adverse reaction. Like with anything, some dogs will have a lower tolerance.

    We feed a raw egg mixed with just a little milk twice a week. Never had a problem. I've also used the whole egg mixed in with their sardines , again no adverce reactions except for Tonk.But we didn't realise the full extent of damage that had been done to hi metabolism/blood sugars etc at that stage. So he no longer gets sardines.

    All my dogs will nick an egg,shell an all when given a chance
