counter I crack open the egg in a bowl and mix it with all of their other supplements (oils, powders, etc.) and meats, so it's like a big stew. I haven't been giving the shell like I used to, but maybe I will use my coffee grinder to grind them up and feed that too. I want them to get all of the good stuff in the shell! I feed them twice a day, so they'll get what I call the "supplement meal" in a bowl, and a separate meal that's usually a big chunk of meat (like 1-2 whole chicken leg quarters) with bone in it.

KaiserandStella I feed 1 whole-raw egg a day as well. Every part of the egg has something to offer. My dogs absolutely love them.

Steve K Legend was 4 months on Tuesday. He gets 1 farm fresh free range big Brown egg every morning on his breakfast meal. And yep, it's raw!

I was giving my boy a egg today. At first I showed him it to get his attention he tried to Bite it. I didn't let him because I didn't know if I could. But I think I will true it next time. Might be fun seeing him trying to eat it that way.

So you guys mostly just drop the egg (with shell) in front of the puppy and she'll eat it fine. Right?

BowWowMeow 1 raw egg (free range, fresh) per day. He also gets the liner from the shell.

SuperG I make a portion of my dog's raw diet an olio consisting of organ meat, tripe, bone meal and whole raw eggs. I simply put a dozen or so whole eggs in a blender and whip them up and mix them into the rest of the concoction.

I am under the impression an egg a day is an adequate and safe amount which will not create an avidin overload thus risking a Biotin deficiency.

Shade There are minerals in the shell itself but for the dog to assimilate it properly it needs to be dried and then ground into a fine power. Most people recommend a coffee grinder (cleaned thoroughly or just used for that purpose)

Personally I don't feed the shell, I just crack the egg onto the kibble and feed
