    No, but it depends how old the eggs are. In fact many people recommend raw eggs mixed in food for dogs to improve their skin and coat. I read that dogs can't get salminela either when I tried the raw egg thing. It's unpleasant but shouldn't be a problem.

    Mine eat raw eggs and are fine, although I feed them the eggs, they don't find them outside I'm guessing she should be fine if she ate them though...

    I wouldn't be worried about an incident with raw eggs but wouldn't feed them ever. The raw egg whites prevent biotin absorption which is necessary for many chemical reactions in the body.

    I did read somewhere though (and can't for the life of me find out where!) that there is more than enough biotin in the yolk to offset the effect of the white, if that makes sense.
