Yes, dogs can eat scrambled eggs. A small amount will generally be fine for your dog.
This is providing you haven’t loaded it up with oil and chilli sauce though!
Are scrambled eggs good for dogs?
Eggs are highly nutritious and will help your dog maintain good condition.
Presuming you cook them correctly, they are a very healthy food for dogs.
Potential problems could occur if your dog is allergic to eggs. You are probably not going to feed them scrambled eggs if you know this in advance though.
So if you have never fed them eggs before, try them with a small amount first and see how they go.
For advice on dog allergies see the American Kennel Club info here.
How to cook scrambled egg for dogs
- Beat 3 eggs in a bowl, so that the yolks and whites are thoroughly mixed.
- Heat a saucepan (or frying pan) on the hob and add a small amount of extra virgin olive oil.
- Once hot, add the egg mixture and stir until you have you scrambled eggs.
- Allow to cool and serve to your doggy.
Do not add any salt pepper etc. It’s not good for them.
Pretty simple we think you will agree.
Can dogs eat raw eggs?
Although they technically can eat raw eggs, it is not advisable due to the risk of salmonella.
The risk of your dog actually getting salmonellosis is very low due to their robust digestive system, but it’s probably not worth the risk.
The nutritional content of eggs is not depleted much by cooking and it is therefore advisable to only feed your dogs properly cooked eggs.
However, if your dog does snatch a few raw ones off the side, it’s probably going to be fine!
Can dogs eat eggshells?
Yes, dogs can eat eggshells if they are ground up finely and added to their food. Eggshells contain calcium and phosphorous.
If you do feed them eggshells, to minimise any pollutants, make sure they are of the organic variety.
