I've had many different suggestions on feeding eggs.....which do you think is best for your dogs, Raw or hard boiled?  I feed them with the shell.
Thanks!

I use both, if I don't have HB on hand I use raw.  Both are good and nutritious.  NAN

Nans, when you feed them raw do you also give them the white? I remember reading the white when raw is not good especially for the puppies, what do you say?

Thanks, Ibrahim

I feed the dogs 2 raw eggs each day. IMHO raw is the best form of nutrition for dogs, they will utilize/absorb more, and it will be put to "better use" in their system. They didnt have anyone hard boiling their eggs in the wild. :)

I have always wondered about feeding the shells...do you break them up or just give them the whole egg to tear into?

 thanks everyone!  Sounds like Raw eggs are the way to go!  We always crush the shell!

I'm with Ibrahim. I did read something about raw egg-white affecting vitamin uptake in puppies. So, coddled eggs for puppies. Dunked in very hot water then allowed to cool.
