Default Hard boiled eggs.

Do you all feed hard boiled eggs? If so, do you give all the egg and how many a day is good? Also, is it ok to mix the egg with kibble?

I feed my dog a raw food diet that includes a raw egg with the shell included. I crunch it up into small pieces with my hands.

We have chickens so eggs are in my dogs diet several days per week. They prefer them hard boiled so that is how I feed them. Shell doesn't easily digest unless it is pulverized...I don't give the shells to my dogs.

I feed Gretchen raw eggs mixed with kibble a lot. Not daily, if I had chickens I'd do it daily though. 1-2 would be plenty.

Zoey doesn't get eggs much since her caloric intake for the day is very small and at roughly 70-80 calories per egg, it would take up most of her days worth of calories. She eats a raw diet, no kibble whatsoever. I feed mostly ground raw and package it in 3-4 days worth containers so if I forget to thaw something it's hard to find something she can eat so I typically just replace the meal with a scrambled egg. I scramble it because there is more bulk to fill her up than a raw egg. They also don't take as long to cook as hard boiled eggs since I can zap them in the microwave for like 30 seconds to cook them plain. But this isn't very common in her diet, again only because of her caloric needs. If she was a bigger dog or had a better metabolism I would feed them more often and feed them raw with her meals.

I don't feed the shell whole or crushed though because it won't digest fully so you'll find white specs in the poo. It won't HURT the dog, I just put them to better use. I dry them out in the oven and then powder them in a coffee grinder to use as free calcium for Zoey's diet when I don't feed bones. Though one fun "treat" the dogs will enjoy especially on a hot summer day is freezing the egg and then giving it whole to the dog, shell and all. They'll roll it around and try to figure out how to crack it and then spent time licking the frozen goodies inside. You can also offer a whole egg that's not frozen and watch your dog figure out how to open it to get to the yolk. Lol!

I have chickens so yes my dogs get raw/hard boiled whatever I give them usually every other day.

The shells I mash up and give back to the chickens

mine gets a hard boiled egg every other day. I hide the tramadol pill inside the yoke when he needs it for pain.

Ky gets both raw and hardboiled ... she doesn't eat the shell at all ... it's pretty impressive how she'll get ALL the egg off the shell from the ones that are hardboiled! I give a raw egg one day, hard boiled the next, raw egg the next, etc.

Every few days I give him a raw egg (shell included) mixed with his kibble it has really improved his coat!

I worry about raw egg and the possibility of salmonella. I began to give him soft boiled. He loved it but his poop got too soft.
