Maybe. This is a toss-up. Eggs are a great source of protein. They also contain essential fatty and amino acids. Eggs can even help settle a dog’s upset stomach. You can likely serve your dog a raw egg from time to time without any problems, but you do run the risk of salmonella exposure if you come across a bad egg. And a regular diet of raw eggs can lead to biotin deficiency. (Biotin is a B complex vitamin that supports healthy digestion, metabolism, and skin and cell growth.) The bottom line: it’s safer to serve your dog cooked or boiled eggs.
