Thread: Quick question - raw egg whites?

  1. #1

    Default Quick question - raw egg whites?

    I have made my boys eggs benedict for brekkie and was left with the egg whites. Can I give it to Hooch and if so.. raw or cooked?
    I googled it and came up with so many contradicting opinions... so those in the know... can I?

    I can only tell you that my dogs are egg thieves of our rang free chickens and ducks. they lay in odd places quite often. Our dogs do RAW eggs often, most likely every other day........There are people who say it should be cooked. I feed most other things RAW, so i go with RAW.

    My dogs have beautiful coats and except for Katy's pebble incident, they have been healthy

    Spose it's just up to you. Like you, I googled raw eggs, and got contradicting opinions. I always thought raw eggs were good for dogs, and so Oskar gets one occasionally. If the girls break one when we are cooking, I just get Oskar to clean it up lol.

    For me, I cook egg whites, and leave the yolks runny or raw.

    Rozzie used to love egg yolks over her dry food.... she treated it like popcorn with butter... snarfed it up then ran round the yard with eggy jowls flappin in the wind. Now, dry food is a challenge, so she hasn't had eggs in a while in any form.

    I used to make chicken soup for Chubb - he enjoyed it so much, and the vet said he could have cooked
    eggs so I used to scramble them with garlic and parsley.

    I have'nt scrambled an egg since he passed.. it just breaks my heart.

    I had always given my dogs raw eggs, and their coats are always shiny and healthy and they tolerate them very well, and usually mixed them in with raw mince (they wont eat it alone, picky little buggers), cooked vegies and flaxseed oil as a once weekly brew, other than that they have raw chicken or meaty bones and a little dry!
    But then after they devoured my scrambled eggs one, I realized they loved em cooked better....so now i just throw em into the almost cooked pot of vegies and mix with the mince.

    Raw egg white contains biotin which is bad for them. A single whole egg here and there won't hurt but a lot or daily can cause problems. I just separate out the yolk when I'm giving mine raw egg. Cooked egg white is harmless though and the shells are great if they will eat them ground up.

    I suppose it depends on which articles you read.After a short search i can find for and against..............confusing

    For; "The white of the egg has been said to interfere with biotin assimilation, but nature knows best by making the egg yolk very rich in biotin. The egg in its entirety is a very balanced food and only supports health and should be taken in its entirety, yolk and white together."...They were talking about raw eggs
