Intolerant to eggs ?

Post by Nifty staffy on Fri Sep 28 2018, 19:52

From time to time, I like to give Nifty a raw beaten egg in her kibble or a hard boiled egg.
However, I’ve noticed that she’s been sick afterwards each time lately.

Anyone else have this problem ?

No, never known that.

Maybe it's just too much? You could try giving slightly less kibble when she has an egg, or give it before her kibble.

Have you thought of giving her the whole egg, with the shell?

I do reduce the amount of kibble when I add the egg so not sure it’s a problem with quantity itself.
She had the hard boiled egg almost an hour after kibble so yet again, not sure it’s too much.
She was worse after raw egg than boiled.

I daren’t give whole with shell as I have supermarket freerange eggs (rather than chicken in the garden) so concerned about absolute freshness. I must also admit that I have trouble getting my head around the concept of eating eggshells Blushing even if it is good for them

I've found that the shells can irritate the stomach, it's the only time my dogs have been sick after eating eggs.

Dogs can be allergic to/intolerant of eggs so it is possible Nifty is reacting to them. I'd leave them out if I were you.

I've always given eggs with shells (organic) & never had a problem with freshness or stomach irritation, but each to their own.

Dogs certainly can be intolerant of almost anything, but if she's had them before, I don't see why she should suddenly become so. I just wonder if she has trouble with them with her dinner. Maybe try halfway between meals? Having said that, eggs aren't essential, so if she struggles with them, it doesn't matter if she doesn't have them.
