      While I was feeding kibble, Cookie had one raw egg per week. It made him really gassy though.

      He's on raw now and I've read here that some people give an egg every other day. I've been doing this for years with no issues.

      Yep. Straight from my birds. I don't do shells because Nikki has had so many digestive issues but it's probably reasonable for me to grind them up in a mortar and pestle. I hadn't really thought about it before now.

      Think it important to keep in mind that a new member/dog owner may be reading this stuff also.
      Please newbie; before you believe what’s being written on any forum check with your vet and/or do your own research.
      Here’s a couple paragraphs from just one article on the subject:
      “The study concentrated on two common pathogens—Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. I’m sure you’ve heard of (or maybe known someone who has dealt with) the effects of being exposed to Salmonella, and it’s not a pretty picture. Severe gastrointestinal symptoms occur within 12 hours to three days of exposure and can last up to a week or more. Sources for Salmonella include undercooked or raw meat and eggs, both of which are common ingredients in raw pet foods.
      Obviously, because your pet is meant to ingest these foods, they would be exposed to these pathogens and be at risk of developing clinical disease from them. But, these foods also pose a threat to humans in the household as well, making these raw pet foods a public health risk in addition to being a threat for your pet.”

      Dogs are carnivores, they have a shorter GI tract so bacteria from raw food is not really an issue.

      I've been feeding raw to my dog for 5 years now, and never had a salmonella issue.

      Besides, every once in a while a kibble brand gets a recall because of salmonella. Do you feed kibble? Be careful and wash your hands.

      When we had chickens over the summer I would give each dog a whole egg once a week at least.

      Here’s the message in words that I understand:
      I agree..., it’s unlikely your dog would have any ill effects from the disease,
      But your dog can and may pass it along to you..

      Highly doubtful. Salmonella is rare in raw feeding...

      Is it rare in eggs?
      Thought that's what started this post.

      Your dog can pass it onto you if there is salmonella in kibble, then.
      What's the difference?

      For what it's worth, in these 5 years that I am feeding only raw to my dog, I never got sick. And I honestly don't know any raw feeder that got sick with salmonella either. And yes, eggs are an integral part of raw feeding, since they get first place in bioavailability of protein.
