Feeding Eggs

I have started feeding my boys a egg york at day.


I was wondering, if you feed egg, do you feed the whole egg or just the york..

Have you had any problems feeding the white?

Peace, Love & Havanese

I have a question about this too...

It is cooked egg yolk correct? I was interested in trying it and assumed it is cooked but nothing ever said. Also some people have stated they use powdered egg yolk, where do you find that?

I was planning on hard boiling a dozen eggs today and was trying to figure out what to do with all the egg whites!

I have been scrambling the egg york only, I didn't know if they would like them hard boiled. Truth be told I hate the smell of them hard boiled. You can get the powder egg york from the http://www.eggstore.com/poweggyol.html it does cost more than buying eggs and for me I have more time than money so I will just buy them and cook.


I was also warned the once you start you cannot stop, I 'm not sure if it is just on dogs like Preston or if it applies weather they have CD or not.


Maybe Jan who has been so helpful to me in all this, can let us know about that.

You could give it raw, but then I think of the bacteria and their long tash and beard. YUCK.

My three are loving it scrambled.

I don't feed Kubrick eggs, but I definitely would not feed it raw as it is possible for eggs to have salmonella just like chicken. It's not to the same extent, but I wouldn't take the risk.

Saute some onion and bell pepper and make a fabulous egg white omelette! If you have some Havarti cheese to put on top... mmmmm! OK, I'm hungry now.

You can buy powdered egg yolks by the pound at eggstore.com . The price changes quite often between $7-$8 per pound, and right now it is down to $7/lb again.

I was told by a raw food guru, to feed the entire egg raw or soft boiled. Dogs digestive tracts can handle the bacteria, because they are short and food passes quickly. I think that's how it was explained to me. I feed the raw diet and each of my guys get 2 soft boiled egges per week.

I can get real eggs for half this price, and I always feel that fresh is best.

Gucci won't eat eggs! She did when she was a pup, but will NOT touch them now, even snuck into food. Does anyone else have this problem? And maybe has fixed it?

I've tried it ALL different ways, nada.

I would rather feed fresh, too. I have heard mixed theories on the raw foods, some scientists think that some bacterias can and have changed/morphed like viruses..and could get a dog sick.

I was curious about this as I am switching my dogs to the raw diet. I am assuming that soft boiled is poached? Do you soft boil in the shell or crack into boiling water? Can you tell I'm not a big egg eater? I think the fresh eggs would be best but was wondering about the whites. I also buy cage free vegeterian fed chicken eggs so, hopefully they are as natural as possible.

Paige, I just went back to this too. My breeder said to do it everyday til they were 6 months and then three times a week-- but again, I don't know if it needs to be daily for dogs with the CD. She has kind of dropped off so I can't really contact her. her suggestion was just hard boiling a bunch of eggs and sprinkling the yokes in with their food. The boys stopped eating it so I let it go.
Cash now likes his scrambled egg yolk in the morning- I am doing it every other day. I would love some advice from Jan or Doc or Tom on this too since they seem very familiar with the study. But again, I am not sure if Cash is CD or just french footed-- so I just thought it couldn't hurt in the mean time.




Missy, Jasper & Cash
