YES! In-fact there are no rules with how many to give your dog.


In humans, information differs from suggesting no more than 7 per week in healthy humans to no more than 7 per week in individuals who have 2 Diabetes or high cholesterol.


Eggs are a complete protein, therefore if the need arises, you could actually feed eggs in place of meat.


My dogs get eggs probably 4 times per week and we give backyard chicken eggs and quail eggs + duck eggs where possible that we have sourced from FB Marketplace or Gumtree.


Should you feed them cooked or raw? I rotate between the 2 but mostly raw because that is what a dogs digestive system was made for. There was information going around that if you feed raw eggs then your dog could get a Biotin deficiency but like anything we always need to ask the "How much" question.


"Avidin, one of the egg proteins, can combine with biotin and make biotin unavailable. However, a human would have to eat 24 raw egg whites a day for biotin to be inhibited by avidin."(1)


Some pet parents give an entire egg in the shell to dogs for enrichment, if you do this, be sure that it's not from the supermarket as these shells are chemically washed.
