My boyfriend insists that I don't give the dogs egg yolks. Should I just give them the white part?

To much will of course hurt you. I get a raw egg once and a while and once is fine for me even though Im a mooselaugh out loudBOL
You could even give it to them once a day, but 3 or 5 times a day is way to much and could make them sick. But yeah it does help our skin & coat become more "pertty" and healthier.cloud 9

Nope, nothing wrong with egg yolks but DO NOT FEED RAW!!!!

Raw eggs can carry salmonella!!!! Hard boil the eggs before you give them to the dog and your dog will still get the same benefits for their skin and coat.

The main danger of eating raw eggs is Salmonelosis. The USDA states that only 0.003 % of eggs are infected of the 69 Billion eggs produced annually are infected with a high bacterial load of salmonella. In addition, due to the dog's short digestive tract, bacteria do not stay long enough to multiply, thus dog's rarely suffer from foodborne illnesses. Many people here feed raw eggs, including us. In fact we feed completely raw at least once a day and two of our dogs only eat raw. You'll be just fine eating raw eggs.

As a side note if you search the raw forum or do just a search in general you'll find a lot of info about eggs. Many have no problem feeding raw. There are some who do cook and that is good also, but there isn't a problem with them eating raw egg.

If your dog is healthy you can feed raw eggs.

There are pasteurized raw eggs that won't have salmonella at most grocery stores. Check the packaging.

I feed Gunner a raw egg 3 times a week, and he isn't affected by any type of bacteria, and nobody else in my household is either.

If your dog is in good health (healthy weight, no life threatening diseases or complications), then your dog will do fine with a raw egg once or twice a week.
