Well, if I'm making a general statement to be cautious of feeding excessive amounts of raw egg, then... it kind of IS what I was talking about.

I went back and edited. Maybe its clearer...been a LOOONG day lol

What I mean I think people would have to be feeding a ridiculous amount of eggs for most dogs to have an issue (and I dont think its just biotin deficiency as the issue from it). If they are eating that many eggs the balance overall is off because they arent eating enough other things, meat, kibble, what have you

My pups are on a high quality kibble and every 2-3 weeks (when I remember and when we have them) they get an egg each, shell included. They love them.

My dogs have always had multiple whole eggs a week and have never had issues.

eh, this sounds snarky and I dont mean it to be. From what I have seen adn read over and over there seems to be no consensus. Yes, I would not suggest feeding in excess...but that goes for anything as if you are feeding that many eggs something else is missing.

I know many dogs who get even an egg a day and have never had issues
To be fair, your dogs are also a lot bigger than little Jackson, so a raw egg isn't as much for them as they are for Jackson

Is there a trick to feeding eggs? I've tried it before and the dogs get absolutely horrible, room clearing gas.

I feed raw eggs, no problems here. And I've noticed a huge improvement in Zander's coat while feeding them. I give one + SG Seameal in his breakfast every other morning. Seameal helped his coat, but the egg really boosted it.

No gas, no problems at all. He has a soft mouth, and doesn't understand breaking the shell himself, but that is about it.

Our old yard dogs would get 2-3 raw eggs each a day when we'd collect em from the chickens... and that went on for 13 years or so, until they both passed from old age. Never had a problem with any deficiencies!

I still feed eggs, though not always daily. Shell and all!

Anyone else do this? See results with coat or differences? His coat is already pretty shiny and soft, so I'm not super concerned, but just thought it'd be a nice addition to give him weekly.

He eats Acana kibble mixed with wet food (usually Weruva or Canine Caviar) OR we'll just use a little bit of plain chicken breast or whatever extra meat we may have laying around or from leftovers.
I feed raw 100%, and mine get raw eggs pretty regular. Not as a whole meal, but just in between meals like a snack.

canines of all sorts have been eating eggs for thousands of years, and now someone is going to try and tell us they aren't good for them? pffffft please.

Raw eggs are eaten by everyone is this household, humans included

Same here. It seems like painful gas for Auggie too, he doesn't seem very comfortable that day. =/ So we don't do raw eggs anymore. I just give salmon oil instead.
