Our question this week was:You said it could be dangerous to feed dogs raw eggs. Since I raise chickens for eggs, I often have extras and thought they were high in protein and good for dogs. However, even though my vet said it was ok to feed them eggs, I try to always cook them scrambled before feeding them. What are your feelings on this?
Hi – thanks for your email. Feeding cooked eggs are okay for dogs some dogs. There is nothing they specifically needed in the eggs that dogs don't get from a good quality premium dog food but for most dogs, being fed a cooked egg it is not a problem.
I should mention that some dogs that have sensitive stomachs, that are not used to eating table scraps or dogs that are prone to pancreatitis
can have gastrointestinal upset from eating eggs.
P.S. – Do you have any great pet tips? I love learning from pet owners and have been looking for some pet tips. I might try to share some of these with other PetPlace users! Send me your pet tips
