Is it safe?

Can I give my 6 month old pup raw egg mixed into her food?

Yes, 2-3 times a week both dogs get a raw egg split between them (70/30). My parents raise the chickens so I know what they're eating

Yep

Does it also promote weight gain? My pup is somewhat underweight

It's protein and vitamins, but not enough it should significantly affect weight. The biggest impact I've seen is it helps keep their coats nice

Just give your pup a little extra kibble or whatever you feed, then assess to see how he is doing.

Thanks so much! I did give her a little more than I normally do. Also do you think it's a puppy thing where they fatten up then drop weight cause they are growing too quick?

Thanks. She is transitioning into her new coat so it can also help she has a sable stripe in her back right now that looks nice! But her sides are still in that pup fuzz state. She shed most of it spin hope it comes back soon.
