Eggs for my GSD

Raw vs Boiled? Can they have the shell as well?

yes and yes and yes.

At my house I boil the eggs and remove the shells (usually) to keep the mess down.

Mine get raw a couple times a week. No shell because they get their calcium in the food.

Yes. I have ducks and my dogs get fresh raw duck eggs routinely. They can eat the shells, but I throw mine out. I just crack it open on their kibble and mix it up good.

You can do boiled or raw. Shells supply calcium. I use to give my dogs shells on occassion but I have read that when they clean the shells it’s often with bleach. If I get fresh eggs from a friend ‘s or neighbor’s chickens or if I get them fresh at a local farm - I will feed the shells then but not store bought.

They might get some calcium but most of the shell just gets passed through the gut. I've seen old pooh and it turns into mostly old shell.

I have my own chickens so my girl gets the whole raw egg (shell too). As car2ner said the shell goes right through but I do it so that she gets the shell membrane which is supposedly good for joint health.

If I give the shell I usually crush it to small pieces. I have not seen anything or just not noticed. Shells can be sharp but I have not had a problem I do not give them to my chihuahua though. That’s good to know about the membrane being good for the joints.

Same, in my house.

When I hardboil them, I smash the egg around on the countertop a little bit before feeding to make sure my older GSD doesn't pick out the shell bits - since I want her to get as much benefit from eating the entire membrane as possible.

Other times, I just crack the raw eggs over the food.
