    Default Eggs

    Hi

    Did I read somewhere thats its beneficial to feed an occasional egg ,if it is which part do I feed all of it ,the white only ,or just the yolk .
    I do remember when I had a GSD I often used to beat up a whole egg and mix it into her food but with our Cavaliers I am not too sure .

    The occasional egg is good- all of it, even the shell~ IF you grind it up VERY fine. You can serve it raw or boiled.

    I don't think raw egg is a good idea because of Salmonella. I wouldn't want to take the chance, you could have a very sick dog on your hands.

    Mine love a soft boiled egg {only if you can get it from a safe source, otherwise hard boil it} - they also love scrambled egg {no seasoning or milk, just a dash of water added}.

    A mortar and pestle is great for grinding up the shell

    My two have a raw egg each as part of their breakfast at least once a week - they're great for their coats. I seem to remember reading somewhere that salmonella doesn't infect dogs in the same way as humans - our digestive systems and metabolisms are different - after all, I can eat raisins without getting kidney failure!

    Dogs can and do get salmonella, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. I eat cookie dough and all that jazz as well.

    But! Avidin in raw egg white binds biotin which is an essential nutrient. Best to cook the egg first

    I can't recall a case where a dog has gotten salmonella from raw food - from dog foods, yes, but not from raw food.

    That being said - giving them raw eggs is GREAT for their health and coat. However, I would be wary of giving them eggs more than once a day (as in - one egg per day). If you can, you can grind up the shell and give it to them as a powder. That's good for them as well.

    Mine get a raw free rand or organic egg about twice a week & ive never had a problem with it. Personaly I wont give my dogs cheap 'value' typre eggs as I believe (rightly or wrongly) that these eggs come from hens that may have been given antibiotics or other drugs - which if you cook the egg they go but may still be present in raw eggs - but like I say thats my oersonal choice. (so me & hubby eat the value ones & the dogs get the expensive ones !!!!!!)

    Brian the only think I would say is that eggs are quite high in calories so if Poppy's still on her diet I wouldnt give her too many of them.
