Are raw eggs good for my dog?


Answer by  bl834 (1317)

Eggs are great for your dog... but I think you should cook them first. You wouldn't eat a raw egg for fear of salmonella etc, right? Then again, I know lots of dog owners who do feed their dogs raw eggs with no problems, so I guess it's a matter of the egg being okay in the first place.

Even though dogs are able to process raw foods, in excess raw eggs can decrease the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin) due to an enzyme called "avidin", found in raw egg whites. This can lead to skin and hair coat problems. Raw eggs can contain the Salmonella bacteria.

I am not sure about raw eggs, but cooked eggs added to your dogs diet helps them maintain a very shiny and healthy coat. The eggs also add more protein to your dogs diet as well.

Yes, raw eggs are great for your dog. Raw eggs have vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin E and Iron. All are good for a dogs hair. Also, raw eggs are a great source of protein and since your dog is a carnivore in nature they should get as much protein as possible.

Eggs are generally good for dogs. They work especially well to ensure a glossy coat. There are some downsides to using raw eggs, however. Raw eggs can carry diseases; while dogs are more resistant to these illnesses than people, there is some risk. Also, the yolks are high in cholesterol, and dogs are not immune to heart disease.

When a dog is acting legarthic, and acting like it is trying to vomit, giving raw eggs will help them get better. I fed my dog beans and he became very ill. I thought that he was going to die. The raw eggs cured the sickness. Never feed dogs beans.

Raw eggs is not good for dogs. because it should be cooked until its bacterias are completely gone. so it is better to cook until its done. half boiled eggs are much better than raw eggs. now a days doctors are also not recomending to eat half boiled eggs. so use fully cooked egg every time.
