I feed Rafi one raw egg per day. I buy eggs that are locally sourced from free ranging, anti-biotic-free hens.

I've heard that a whole raw egg is one of the purist sources of protein. I have been adding them to my dogs' diet for years. I notice improvement in their coat if I stop giving them raw eggs and then start up again.

This is a definite yay.

I give our dogs at least one raw egg every single day from our own hens.

I was feeding raw eggs, but have started giving hard boiled instead, my dogs like the HB's better(from my own chickens)
