I prefer lightly cooked... biotin in large amounts (found in the white) can
cause problems - sorry, I can't remember exactly which Vitamin it affects -
anyone!!>???)
BTW, my two looove eggs... they are a very rich source of protein, so I
limit my two 10lb / 5kgs dogs to 1 a week.

I have a friend who has a degree in pultry, and her comment, when I asked, was
that you would have to feed SO much egg to cause biotin deficiency it is not an
issue.

Don't feed the shell.  Think about what it would be like to eat something
with sharp edges!  If you are fixing homecooked food the shells can be used
for a source of calcium to add to meat (which is deficient in calcium).
They can be baked at a low temperature in the oven to dry them out and make
them easier to grind.  See Richard Pitcairn's book, The Natural Health of
Dogs and Cats to check for the correct proportions of calcium to meat.

   Yes salmonella really is a big deal in dogs.  These people may just
happen to be lucky.  But I'm pretty sure if they got salmonellosis once,
they'd never eat raw eggs again.  Salmonella can cause significant disease
in all mammals and should probably be avoided if possible.  Especially
since I can't imagine the nutrient difference between cooked and uncooked
eggs is that extreme.

Is salmonella poisoning really an issue for dogs? I know people who
eat raw eggs all  throughout their lives and have never had any
poisoning.

Well FWIW raw egg yolk is the only part of the egg that is actually
beneficial to the dogs - the raw egg white actually robs the dog's system
of B vitamins and is thus considered detrimental.
However you can feed your dog an entire COOKED egg without the dangers and
with the same as far as I know benefits reputed to raw eggs.

Foolish? For eating raw eggs? I still don't know... the concern of
getting salmonella poisoning seemed small in the various countries
I've been in.. Restaurants in Germany, Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea all
served raw egg foods and there wasn't much hesitation from the
locals.. Its practically in some peoples cultures to eat raw
eggs..Don't get me wrong, salmonella IS a serious issue but what do
you say about these different cultures that eat raw eggs practically
every day? Are they so foolish and ignorant? I really don't think its
THAT important to watch over your dogs diet as if they're four legged
humans..

According to all of the books that I have read, dogs and humans alike would
have to eat mega amounts of just egg whites to cause an imbalance.  I give my 2
dogs raw eggs 3-4 times per week and have for the last 3-4 yrs.  I draw ***
on them yearly and there is yet to be an imbalance.  I will continue to give
raw, free range eggs because I have seen the benefits out weigh anything !!

I use to give our Sighthounds ( they hunt alone without my help) two raw
eggs a week during the hunting period were they work a lot. No side effects
and they love it.

  Wow .. this is really an eye opener .. all the stuff I've read and VETS told
me NEVER to give RAW EGG YOLK to dogs as they have a hard time digesting it and
it can cause a lot of problems (the latter never explained) .. I must show this
to my vet.

Its the *white* that is purported to be a problem, and again, you would have to
feed massive amounts to be a problem, according to friends of mine who have degrees
in poultry. <g> Following is an excerpt from a note from one of them about this
subject:

"the components of an egg are yolk and albumen(white).  The albumen has a protein
in it, Album*i*n.  Raw Albumin binds Biotin (a B vitamin).  When fed in *very*
large quantities over a *very* long time, raw Albumin can cause a Biotin deficency.

Unless the animal is fed unusual amounts of raw eggs there is nothing to
worry about in the case of a normally healthy animal."
