Ironically, I gave Grim a raw egg last evening. He had diarrhea starting early this morning... once inside that I didn't catch so the living room smells AWFUL! Just be careful with the side effects, lol!

Feed a cooked egg everyday but Liv likes them best with the yolk runny!

i heard some problem with biotin??? and you either have to remove the yolk, or is it the white otherwise you have to use the shell to balance something, posted the question on a RAW site. the amount of info i got back was massive and technical, i only remeber the mumbo-jumbo i posted above - as a result my dogs get a whole raw egg every day, free range hormeone free from a certified ethical.

i have no idea if this is good or bad advice.

DOGGIES LIKE THE EGGIES.

i read that raw uncooked eggs will still have biotin present. biotin will hamper vitamin B absorption. cooking will apparently destroy the biotin.

for lunch my pup has been getting three scrambled eggs with shell... so far absolutely no problems. of course, try minimizing the oil needed to scramble the eggs.

my guys get a raw egg 1-2 times a week. Nice coats and no problems.

"Why.. whats the purpose of this?" Seriously you posted a question like that? Its nutrition, an egg is better than blood and bone meal that kibble protein is based on. That is meat scraps sprayed onto a wall and dried into powder. "what is the purpose of that= profit for the petfood company" I just got a puppy and she eats raw- no puppy breath, and the adults have sparkling white teeth.

I've also heard about raw eggs prohibiting b vitamin absorption, any truth to this? And if you're only giving a few times a week does it really have an affect if true?

I gave my pup a raw egg in his Fromm yesterday for the first time and he LOVED it and best of all no stomach upset even though his stomach is quite sensitive. Just gave him raw meat for the first time tonight too(only a little bit), so far no issues. I gave a little bit of raw to one of my other dogs a few months ago and he was up all night vomiting, of course he has the most sensitive stomach of any animal I've ever owned.

Biotin is a B vitamin, though. Vitamin B7 to be exact.
