Exclamation Giving my puppy an egg for her coat??

Hi guys !!

I was wondering if I should give my puppy a raw egg on top of her food to help to keep her coat healthy ?? I know you should give some dogs eggs but wasn't sure if it would do anything for hers or if she was too young. She is 4 and 1/2 months !

Fish oil IMO is a better supplement if you are looking for a health coat. You can give one fish oil pill a day and should have good results.

What kind of dog food do you feed? A healthy dog food will produce a nice coat.

Per Deb (geisthexe):

RAW EGGS Contain an enzyme called avidin, which decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin). This can lead to skin and hair coat problems.

EGG SHELLS Provide our dogs with much needed calcium. Eggshells consist of calcium carbonate (94%), magnesium carbonate (1%), calcium phosphate (1%), and organic matter (4%).

I wash the egg shells out and let dry for a night or two then crush them up into powder and sprinkle over food.

Oil and a good-quality kibble. Skip the egg.

Salmon oil/fish oils or flax seed oil. Of course a quality kibble helps but alot of the Omega 3's and 6's lose potency through processing so adding a good oil is very beneficial. I would stay away from the eggs. Here is a supplement thread I made last month.

Supplement sticky?? Why not?

Thanks for posting this Blue, and to Ava for askin the question.

I've been researching opinions on raw eggs for dogs and so far I see people being 50/50 on it. I'm just going to go with the flax seed oil/fish oil option for a healthy coat instead of the raw egg per day, and take it from there. It seems like there are less possible consequences when doing so. Thanks again!

I knew a couple of people with bandogs that would put a raw egg in the food and there coat and skin were horrible. I put my Bella on Flax seed oil a month ago and her coat never looked better.

yep definitely skip the egg and look for rich sources of omega 3 and 6 such as fish oils.
