Default Everyday eggs for dogs

Is it bad for dog to eat egss everyday? I feed him 1 to 2 eggs everyday because that's cheapest food i can give him in order for him to get protein in his body to build muscle.. I cant afford dog food now or even chicken..

I f you are feeding eggs and only eggs, you're going to have pretty major health issues to deal with - you are missing key nutrients!!

He needs to eat more than just eggs. You can feed eggs as well as dog food or mix the eggs with his dog food to give him more protein, but if he ate ONLY eggs he would get sick.

That's no good at all. He's missing all kinds of essential trace minerals and other nutrients. If you want to do a home made diet, find out how to make a well balanced, completely nutritious diet for dogs. If you can't afford dog food, what if something more expensive happens, like some big vet bill? I hate to say it, but maybe you should consider re-homing him, even if temporary. (?) I mean...well balanced food is such a basic need. I'm really sorry you're having such financial trouble.

If you can't afford anything else you may want to consider reaching out to friends for help.

Do they have food banks for dogs? You might also check around for that.

I know of several rescues who'll help valid cases, also several who'll be rude and demand you sign over your dog.

Consider what you're eating, how you're affording your food and rethink your finances in the rest of your life?

It's easier said than done but some places have extremely cheap bulk dog food or even brown rice/oatmeal which will be better than nothing for a short period.

Also some petstores sell/donate torn bags to valid cases. I know a few times rescues turned away high end torn bags I scored. Also Walmart will sometimes donate/sell cheap their pull date meat.

Just eating a diet of eggs will eventually make him sick. Check for local pet food banks in your area. Dogs need meat for protein.
