Eggs

Postby Fuego » May 10th, 2009, 10:53 am

Hi,

Twice a week I put vegetables in the mixer and add one egg. My dog weighs about 25-30 kg (haven't weighed her for a while). Do you think I should feed more eggs?
Also I'd like to know if it's ok to feed goose or even ostrich eggs. :?

I would not have a problem with feeding either to Gator. I tend to give Gator a few eggs a week. 3 on average.

Thanks for the replies.
I will give more eggs now, probably three to five each week, depending on what I feed.

I probably wouldn't give a whole ostrich egg in one meal... those things are HUGE. :shock: :shock:

I understand that feeding daily eggs is too much. I forget about feeding them but I wouldn't do more than 2-3 a week (I usually only remember to feed 1 egg a week). I also grind up the shells and feed shell with each egg that I feed. I have also read that dogs absorb like 40% more egg when it's cooked or slightly cooked but I hate to wash extra pans so I haven't committed to cooking dog eggs yet... Any type of eggs is good!

OH.... :shock:
I've been stirring an egg with Dar's afternoon feeding for several months now. And with this morning feeding, I give him 1/4 cup cottage cheese.

I feed half/half of Innova Large Breed puppy and Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy...

Does this sound okay???

I wonder if I just hard boil a bunch a week, then give him a hard boiled egg, so he absorbs the nutrients. *uh. this sounds like more work*....


:D

Well...I was going on memory - now, I can't find any articles to back up my statements.... Cheeky was the last person I remember commenting on cooking vs not cooking eggs (not for salmonella but for percentage of digestion) - maybe she'll chime in. I also just read that Cheeky said (in an old thread) it's OK to feed eggs daily and I would trust her experience tho I personally still feel that I wouldn't mess with eggs on a daily basis - I'll send her a PM. :)

I have chickens, and therefore homegrown eggs. I don't feed my dog's eggs all the time, but I simply give them the entire egg and they eat it shell and all. Now that we're starting to feed raw I think it's something I'll do maybe once a week.

Raw egg whites bind with biotin, so if your dog has hair loss issues you don't want them to have raw eggs.

does this have ANYTHING to do with causing a dog to start shedding??

Dar has just started t shed....and here I though maybe I had found the shed-less breed of dog!!!

Yes and no. well, No, I don't think so. But when a dog has thin hair, adding biotin to the diet can help their hair get thicker by keeping the hair in longer (the same way it works for people)
