    My big hound gets an egg and some oil in his kibble every evening. He is difficult to feed, and this is the system that has worked best for him.

    I don't know about the nutritional requirements, but I only give my 55 lb & my 14 lb dogs 1 raw egg a week. I guess I could give the bigger one 2 a week without hurting anything.

    For a number of months one dog got 2 cooked egg whites a day while the other got the cooked yolks. Now the one still gets the cooked egg white but the other only gets egg a couple times a week. He got real fluffy on all those delicious egg yolks.

    Well, I normally cook them 1 egg as their "snack" right before bed 4-5 days out of the week and I split the one egg between the four of them so, total, they all probably end up getting about 1 egg each a week.

    I give no more than two eggs a week pr dog. they love it. I just mix it up with their dry food and they always eat the egg part first. I tried giving egg to my cats as well, but they just puked it up and that was a mess I never want to ever think about again...

    Re: how many eggs per day?

    I use 1 egg + shell a week. I crack an egg, scramble it...pour half over his food(uncooked), &, add a shell half. I then refrigerate the other portion, & give it 2 days later - same way. So, if I do this on a Sun. for example, I then give the 2nd half on Tues.. I don't worry about it until the next week rolls around. As long as I do it during a next, seperate week, I assume that I am on track, & never give more than 1 egg total per week.

    No if it is part of a carefully considered diet. Sassy was getting egg whites daily as a high quality low phosphorus protein source for years.

    Greetings to everyone!

    Feeding a raw egg not the shell is recommended by alot of vets that I know it helps with a shiny coat and also gives a bit of extra protein,but most of the vets that I know only recommend it about once a week.Raw eggs are typically fine for dogs The potential for salmonella is quite low and only 1 in every 30,000 eggs is contaminated with salmonella..

    Dogs are lactose intolerant and should not be fed milk. They also should not be getting so many eggs.

    My dogs get an egg every 2-3 days. There a good source of protien and trace minerals. Plu I use organic eggs so they contain omega 3 fatty acids.
