Are Raw Eggs Hard On Dogs Digestive Systems?

Well dang, my mom needed a dozen eggs today so I got them out of the refrigerator and set them on the counter for her. We got to talking and decided to run to the store real quick for a few more things she needed. While I was at the store my DH called to ask me if I had fed the boys the dozen on purpose, lol he came home and found a half eaten egg carton and a few egg shells on the floor. In my mind I can see exactly what happened, Memphis pulls the carton off the counter and starts munching down, then my pig/ Rhodesian ridgeback robs him of his prize and heads for the living room ( his favorite place to hide his treats) such bad doggies! I just don't know if I should be worried about that much egg, these two are master thieves!

I feed about a dozen per week to my guy...never had any digestive issues with raw eggs in any dog I have owned. One of the best sources of protein out there :) Not sure how many eggs each of your pups got, they might have a bit of digestive upset, but nothing I would be too worried about.

I wouldn't worry. Much worse things they could have eaten in large quantities. ;)

Thanks for the reassurance, I am less worried about Bruce the ridgeback, he is a garbage disposal. He once ate a whole lemon cake that was cooling on the counter. Memphis on the other hand seems to suffer more when he gets into things. I guess eggs are better then some of the stuff they have gotten. lol I swear they work well together when it comes to the planning and execution of their little heists.

My borzoi did the same thing with a lemon cake I made for my DH's birthday. Silly tall dogs! :rolleyes: Hope your guys are doing okay.

One of my pups eat frozen poop so I wouldn't worry about eggs :colgate

When you bring up frozen poop it made me realize that one of my pup's favorite treats is frozen chicken poop ( I keep a few chickens), so eggs should be no problem The only bad side effects was a stinky nights sleep as Bruce sleeps next to my side of the bed and had the worst gas I may have ever had to endure. I slept that night with a pillow over my head. :rofl

I regularly give Phoebe raw eggs. We have four chickens and sometimes they peck a hole in one of their eggs. Phoebe gets those (same day as they're laid). In fact she will take a whole egg out of my hand and eat the entire thing, shell and all. My husband was horrified the first time he saw her do that. :lol

Raw eggs are great. Start out slow.. too many, too soon may cause some diarrhea/loose bowel. But otherwise eggs are natures best packaged food. BTW dogs do not suffer cholesterol problems... like we humans.. LOL

My dogs only eat eggs scrambled, with a bit of cheese (and maybe ham) added.

 

However, my holistic vet really prefers them to eat them raw. And shells will just give them a bit of calcium if they can absorb it.

 

Hope everyone handled the feast well! Any updates?
