1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey guys, I just wanted to get your take on feeding a husky 1 or 2 eggs a day. Me and my sister in law were talking about this earlier and it interested me. Wanted to see if any of you do it or if it's even safe. Thank you!

If you're feeding decent food, I don't see a need for additional supplemental food.

That being said, I've fed the dogs raw eggs now and then and my wife feeds them hard boiled eggs almost daily. Have not seen any issues with either one. Except... Mika freaking inhales them. I was worried she was going to choke so now we crumble them up and toss them on the ground/ in a bowl etc.

Yeah she gets fed good food, I was meaning just to do it I guess. I've read that eggs are beneficial to their skin and coats so I guess that's mainly why I was asking. Have you noticed a difference in your coats?

No, haven't noticed a difference. I figure if we feed them good food, it allegedly has everything they need. Can more hurt? Probably not. And they like them as treats so it works for them. Smile

Eggs are a good source of protein. If you are feeding a food that is already high in protein. Around 30% or so, and not filled with corn, then they are just topper.

I give mine chopped-up boiled egg as a topper occasionally. He really enjoys it.

But, is there any risk of salmonella with using raw egg? I have been afraid to feed raw egg.

I read that there is a risk to that. I've never done raw eggs. I've only fed her a couple of boiled eggs so far. Probably won't make a habit of it, I don't want her to become a begger.

Unless your dog has a weak or compromised immune system there isn't really much reason to worry about salmonella. Dog's digestive tracts are much shorter than humans thus they process and expel food faster rendering the issues with salmonella a very low risk. Recalls for salmonella in dog food is more for the safety of the humans handling the food more than the risk for the dogs.
