    Sometimes is the right word... don't over feed eggs raw or cooked eggs, a little bit of egg daily or a couple of eggs a week....and the shell is just as benefical...a hard boled egg allowed to cool, roll and crack the shell is a very nutritious 'treat' every now and again, one of my dogs eats the egg and shell the other peels it and eats the egg.
    Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium and iodine. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, biotin, pantothenic acid and choline, and other essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus, the shell contains approx 400 mg per gram of calcium.

    Raw feeding is really about doing the research first so you understand the balance of meat, organs, bones required and getting the balance right for your dog, its age and size and there is lots of information online ( google raw/bone, BARF, Prey model) and researching local sources for the raw (butcher, abatoir, fish monger, hunter/fisherman) and if you don't want to do that lots of companies now manufacture and produce 'raw meals' however my personal concern on those is they tend to be expensive and about what quality raw they use as well as what other things they are adding as it is a product sold so as not to miss out on more people choosing to feed raw and for them to make money and manufacturers look for continual cheaper options rather than quality produce.

    Thank You!!! haha so they can eat a full uncooked egg with the shell as that is also good for them? Thanks again for all the help.

    Yes, if I give an whole raw egg, they take it from my hand and take it outside, it also teaches dogs to have 'soft mouths' meaning they carry the egg without breaking it until they take it away and will either place it on the floor, roll it to break or drop it to break it or of course bite it ( depends on the dog)

    Raw eggs can give some of them terrible windy bums, though.

    Tell me about it - that's why my rufty tufty dog has quail eggs, though he says I'm not allowed to tell anyone...
