I have been giving 1/2 a hard boiled egg with their raw food once a day. I'm wondering if you all have thoughts about this....good or bad? They seem to love it.
Thanks for you input

P.S Where do you get those cute time lines?
Well, of course hard boiled eggs aren't raw... if you are REALLY into raw, you can crush the whole egg (shell and all) and feed it that way. My friends with big dogs just hand them the whole, raw, egg, but that sounds lie it might be a bit hard to handle for our little guys! LOL!
I feed my dogs egg several times a week, but I don't hard boil it... too much work!
I crack an egg into a coffee mug spritzed with Pam. Then I whisk it up with a fork and put it in the microwave on high for 20 seconds. (timing will depend on the strength of the microwave and the size of the egg) Take it out, break it up with the fork again, cool and serve. I split one egg three ways, 3 or 4 days a week, though there is no magic in those numbers... Just that we have 3 dogs, and eat eggs several times a week. If I don't give them eggs when we have them, I get the "pitiful me" look.
But eggs are a wonderful form of nutrition for dogs, and in moderation, a great addition to the diet. (whether the rest of the diet is raw, canned, home cooked or kibble!)
