Can Dogs Eat Eggs?

The short answer: Yes and no.

The long answer: Dogs can eat cooked eggs for some excellent protein fix. Eggs are even known to help settle nervous, queasy stomachs. However, raw eggs contain avidin and conalbumin, which can lead to skin or hair coat problems or introduce deadly bacteria when consumed (and there’s always the issue of salmonella).

How to feed eggs to your dog: Cook, boil, or bake eggs as is, or combine them with other dog-friendly ingredients. Never prepare the eggs with salt, oil, or butter. Remove the hard shell and chop it into smaller pieces to prevent choking in smaller animals.

Here are three ideas for egg-laden treats your dog will love:

  1. Brekkie is served in the form of eggs, veggies, and rice in a bowl!
  2. Two whole eggs are mixed into these delightful pumpkin dog biscuits.
  3. Try serving your dog with omelette filled with cheese.

In summary: High in protein, iron, amino acids, and fatty acids, eggs that are cooked or boiled without artificial flavourings can be a part of a dog’s daily diet. Discover which human food dogs can safely consume in our “can dogs eat” category.
