Hi, a friend of mine gives his dog one raw egg a day, my vet says one egg a week is more than enough. I was wondering what any of you do or what you've heard is best?

So, raw eggs are very healthy, but it should not be fed every day.
The eggs are good for the skin, and because of the protein.
So I give my doggies once a week a raw egg mixed into the food, and they love it. The coat shines, so you can do it no problem but not too often.
Bye, Rita.

As far as I know, cooking the eggs is better. Raw only a few times a week but maybe best to get some more answers.
I don't have a dog but sometimes we give our cat raw eggs, too. What's interesting - he prefers the yolk only. He never eats the white.

I have never given my dog raw eggs though know owners who have given it to bind their dogs poo when they have bad tummies.

I do however make my dogs scrambled egg which they absolutely LOVE!

Raw eggs are usually ok in moderation... probably no more than once a week. Cooked eggs, however, would be better. Raw egg whites contain a protein called avidin, which can deplete your dog of biotin, one of the B vitamins. Biotin is essential to your dog's growth and coat health. Additionally, raw eggs are often contaminated with bacteria, such as salmonella, and you could end up giving your dog food poisoning in addition to biotin deficiency.
