    Yes, it is good for their coat. Just don't mix them with kibble- give it an hour later or an hour before, or even as a meal.

    There was a guy I knew in high school who was a real health nut and would make a milk shake and put a raw egg in it...I nearly barfed watching him. With all the problems of salmonella poisoning these days, I wouldn't try that myself and I'm not sure I'd want to give it to the dog either. It may be just fine but, you know how things stick in your head.

    My older sister is going to school to learn to be an even bigger health nut than she already is! She said if you wash the outside of the egg before you crack it open it wont have salmonella. I dont know where she heard that from though. O and why is it bad to mix it with dry kibble?

    I heard a Vet on a talk show state that raw eggs are dangerous due to the antibiotic resistent salmonella they frequently contain. He recommended scrambling or soft boiling the eggs first, which is what I do..

    Raw Eggs

    Every Sunday when I make myself a nice brunch, I give my dogs two raw eggs each in thier kibble. I asked my vet about this before I started and he said that you should only give them one of two a week. He also said that there was no problem mixing it with thier kibble and that it will be hard for them to digest it without having it with a meal. It does in fact give thier coats a certain shine.

    Blackie, If you are not going to help, then don't post. That was innapropriate to say. If you are in fact being serious, I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sure your dog had a serious allgery. Dogs though, unless they are seriously sick, have no allgery to eggs.

    A quote from the K9 Insider...

    Raw eggs should not be given to a dog because of the risk of salmonella poisoning.

    PureBred, I don't know where you got the information that dog's don't have allergies to eggs, but it's not so. They have allergies to wheat, wheat gluten, and a host of other foods as well. Who are you to beat up on someone making their first post about their dog dying from this? I think they would know better than you what killed their dog.

    Why do you feed them the shell? I am assuming there is a health benefit? It seems the shell could cut the inside of the dog

    I think if I were looking for something to make their coats look better, I'd opt for the Missing Link. There's too many discrepancies about uncooked eggs to sooth a questionable mind on this for me. The outer shell is suppose to be good for the calcium.

    Dogs have a very short digestive track then humans. It is hard for a dog to get Salmonella poisoning. A dog would have to eat 50-60 eggs a day every day for something like that to happen. And if I'm not mistaken the FDA has stated that Salmonella is not harmful to dogs.

    Why do you feed them the shell?
    Egg shells is good source of calcium and also acts as a phosphorus binder. I grind the egg shells up before I give them to the dogs. I give one egg every two weeks.

    Exactly.

    Also, feeding it over their kibble isn't supposed to be good due to something with mixing a raw diet and a kibble diet. Too much change in the digestive system, I guess.

    Well I would not add it to a kibble diet. Salmonella is everywhere. Just think for a minute if dogs can get Salmonella don't you think they would get it when they clean their own private parts or better yet when they eat poop.

    That's a pretty cruel remark about someone's post...

    What is so difficult about cooking the egg for a minute or two ?
