Can dogs eat raw eggs? Are raw eggs safe for puppies to eat?
Before we feed our dogs anything new, it is always wise to double-check (and then double-check) that their bellies can handle it, the recommended serving side, and that it should be raw, cooked, etc. So if you are here to learn the best ways to give your pup raw eggs, you’ve come to the right place!
Dogs are always ready to eat almost anything! I have not yet met a puppy who refuses everything. All “Hooman” foods are food in the eyes of our four-legged friends.
This is why it is so important to protect them, keep the trash away from them if you leave our puppies unattended, and not feed them what we eat. Even foods that might be considered healthy are not okay for our dogs.
In this article we will discuss raw eggs. We know their cooked and boiled nutritional value, but do dogs have the same benefits? What about raw?
Are Raw Eggs Safe For Dogs?
This is a big, bold NO.
Please never feed your dog raw eggs. As PetMD sites, while boiled or hard-boiled eggs are safe and even good for dogs, they cannot and should not consume raw eggs.
Properly cooked eggs can even be enjoyed by puppies, their bodies will love to soak up all the nutrients but not raw.
The source states that giving raw eggs to a dog, just like a human, can cause salmonella infection. This can cause vomiting and diarrhea, or worse, depending on your dog and the amount of raw eggs consumed. Bacteria can harm your dog in other ways too.
If you have any questions, contact your veterinarian. The American Kennel Club also warns that some puppies can be allergic to eggs, so feed them a small amount first.
However, pumpkin and bananas are safe for your pet in moderation.
