Frankie gets one every other day but we are actually going to start giving it to him every day.

I give one to Ze'eva almost every day if I remember! She LOVES them, enjoys playing with and eating the shell and devours the yolk and whites inside.

Zoey can't have them because she is on a diet of no more than 100 calories a day, an egg provides roughly 80. So there wouldn't hardly be any space left for calories that are more balanced.

However, I do give them to Chance several times a week after we exercise for extra protein.

Zoey is a very small dog

When feeding eggs on a daily basis, its best to cook the white. The avidin in the white binds to biotin in the yolk. Then, binds with biotin in the body. Its debateable at what point this can cause a biotin deficiency but some research says as little as 1 raw egg a day. I usually feed eggs daily, so I feed the yolk and put the whites into a tupperware container (using the shells to separate the yolks.) Then every couple days I microwave the whites and feed them. Cooking denatures the avidin.
