    Default Egg Yolk

    Can anyone tell me how often you give your furkids egg yolk.
    I know my breeder used to mix it in Dudleys food when I first got him, but I can't remember how often I can give it to him.

    I added just the yolk of an egg to his food tonight and he devoured it.
    I know that it is good for the coat.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I give my billy a boiled egg about twice a week and he loves them. I dont think there is any limit to how often you give it to them. but but personally I wouldn't go for more than twice a week or they will expect it all the time and then they will refuse to eat their regular food.

    Do you mean raw yolk or cooked? I feel comfortable giving my dogs two cooked eggs per week. Sandy

    Sandy:
    Dudley eats Raw food
    So yes preferably Raw Egg Yolk.
    But if that is not good for him I would cook it and put it in his food. I heard that it is good for the coat.

    I'm really inexperienced with food--for humans or dogs. I'm curious why you're only talking about the yolk. What's wrong with the whites?

    I just wouldn't feed him ONLY raw egg white. I usually <very> soft scramble some eggs and divide it up -- or I put raw yolks in "satin balls". Raw egg is as repugnant to me as raw liver. Sandy

    I mixed it in well with his veggies, hamburger, pumpkin, EVO and
    a little of 1st choice kibble. If you think it is better to cook it that is
    what I will do. I sometimes cook the hamburger a little too.

    I just recall that when I first got Dudley as a puppy, she had given me the
    recipe to make his food and raw egg yolk was one of them.

    I have'nt given him egg yolk for a long long time, but just decided to try it tonight.
    What are Satin Balls ???????????

    It has been said::: Raw egg white contains a protein that binds to Biotin and doesn't allow it to be absorbed. Raw egg yolk is said to provide enough biotin that it balances out the issue. So whole raw eggs seem to be ok <but yuck-- it gets in their ear hair -- eww>. Cooking changes the egg white issue altogether.
    Enough people have mentioned this to me to think there may be some truth to it. Sandy

    Satin balls are made for dogs that don't have great appetites... if you need to put some weight on your dog.

    I use a variation of the above receipe-- I don't use all their ingredients--

    I use good hamburger <If I wouldn't eat it-- my dogs don't get it in these either> I use EVOO <extra virgin olive oil> I don't use the egg white or shell.I don't put in the gelatin either- I don't use the oatmeal.

    When I have pills to give, a picky eater, or a dog that needs some weight-- I just thaw some of these meatballs from the freezer. Sandy

    Thanks for that recipe; I know it gets mentioned from time to time; someone on a list somewhere seems to be searching for it every few months! So I've added the link to the Caring for your Cavalier section.

    Back in the 60s my parents were advised to give our pyrenees a raw egg from time to time for her coat so the raw egg advice has been around a long time. she always liked them! I suppose you could give a raw yolk and cook the white, too!
