Egg feast for dogs: A healthy and tasty treat?

9 minutes

Whether for breakfast, baking or as a source of protein after training - eggs are indispensable in many households. But what if you want to give your dog an egg? Can dogs eat eggs? At alphazoo, your dog expert for nutritional supplements, we would like to answer this question for you and take a closer look at the topic.

Health Benefits of Eggs for Dogs

Eggs are a great source of easily digestible proteins, minerals and vitamins. They contain all the essential amino acids your dog needs, as well as important minerals such as selenium, zinc and calcium. Another plus point: The cholesterol content in eggs is safe for dogs because, unlike humans, they do not have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Is it safe to give eggs to dogs?

In general, yes, most dogs tolerate eggs well. However, it is important to prepare eggs properly to minimize the risk of salmonella poisoning. Boiled or fried eggs are good choices. Raw egg whites contain the enzyme avidin, which inhibits the absorption of biotin (vitamin B7). If you heat the egg, avidin is deactivated and the egg is harmless.

Recommendations for feeding eggs

Eggs should only be given as an occasional extra and not as a main part of the diet. A rule of thumb is one egg per week for large dogs and half an egg for smaller dogs. This will ensure your dog gets all the benefits of eggs without consuming too many calories.

How to properly prepare eggs for dogs

Eggs can be boiled, fried or poached - as long as no salt, spices or butter are added. Raw eggs should be avoided due to the risk of salmonella poisoning and the avidin contained in raw egg whites.

Conclusion

To answer the question “Can dogs eat eggs?” To answer: Yes, dogs can eat eggs, provided they are prepared correctly and given in moderation. Eggs can be a high-quality source of protein and add an extra burst of flavor to your dog's diet.
