Egg Yolks? and new to forum

Hi, I'm new to the forum, and have a question regarding egg yolks.

The breeder of my puppy recommended it and had been feeding the puppies the yolks (approx 1/2 yolk a day for now). I think this was based on the 2001 HEART study? (forgive me if I have that incorrect) This is something I have been continuing.

How many of you feed your dogs/puppies egg yolks? Is it still recommended for Havanese?

I also read about possible complications if you do it then stop feeding them the yolk, which kind of concerned me as well!

Thanks in advance. This forum has been a wealth of information!

Hi and Welcome to our forum!
I have heard that it is good to give the dogs a cooked egg yolk about 3-4 times a week. I'm sure someone will know if raw is ok, I don't know why not. Everyday might be too much though.
I break up 2 cooked yokes 3-4 times a week and split it between my 3 havanese. The biggest gets the most, etc.
Hope this helps a little.

Welcome!

My breeder recommended only 1 hard boiled egg yolk per week per dog. I give a 1/2 egg yolk twice a week. They love the egg yolk.

Best, Poornima

What about the white of the egg? Is that OK?

I scramble eggs and Sissy loves them!

Thanks for the welcome. He is 12 weeks old and just a doll.

I believe the reason for the egg yolk has something to do with eye health? I did a search and read some old threads but they were from 2007, so wasn't sure what the current opinion was.

Welcome to the forum! We really....................want to see some pictures of your pup! I did not know about the egg yolk for Havs, I will have to research this one.

If the yolk is suppose to be good, then I will start putting it in the menu! I am sure Dexter would love it!
