My husband, bless his heart, is really getting into this raw food thing. Unfortunately, I wish he'd stick to the menu I am slowly and carefully am getting together, instead of just randomly feeding Tucker items he thinks will be "good and interesting for him."

Grrrrr!

So, this morning, hubby fed Tucker his scoops of Orijens kibble, along with: two mushed up bananas, a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt AND the yolks of 4 hard boiled eggs!

My concerns: I know others feed bananas, so that's kind of ok, but can you feed yogurt and eggs to dogs? The eggs were cooked!?!  AND it was all fed WITH kibble!!

I'm hoping to not go home at lunchtime to discover a poopy mess in my kitchen from the food not agreeing with Tucker.  If there is one (or several, LOL) I am calling hubby home from work to clean it up.

Normally Tucker just gets kibble in the morning for breakfast, and he gets his raw dinner at night.

Thanks for any advice or thoughts.

yogurt and eggs are fine for dogs. I had a rescue beagle who was incredibly thin. We used to put a raw egg in with his dog food. He soon fattened up and had a beautiful coat because of it.

My dogs love bananas and crushed pineapple in their food will stop some dogs from eating poop believe it or not.  My dogs also love blackberries, apples, pears, peaches, tomatoes, potatoes, broccoli, carrots etc  and green salads too.  I give a huge variety of things starting from puppyhood and as a result the pups rarely have diarrhea from food cause they are used to a multitude of foods.

I don't think I could stomach the idea of giving Tucker a raw egg (shell and all) and letting him have at it.  The thought DOES gross me out, but I'm also a girl who ONLY eats hard boiled eggs, and ONLY eats the whites of the hard boiled eggs because the thought of eating the whole egg (scrambled all together, or fried all together, or even eating the yolk of a hard boiled one) is too much for me.

I know the yolk part is NOT the part that becomes the baby chicken...but at the same time I just can't bring myself to eat it. YUCK!

Also- to the poster who doesn't eat ribs...I don't eat anything off the bone either.  Can't stand wings, drumsticks, ribs, t-bone steaks- ANYTHING- where I'm ripping meat off bone (and getting veins, cartilage, fat etc....too).  DOUBLE YUCK!!

What about cranberries? I've seen them in the ingredients for some dog foods, and I assume their good for their urinary tract just like people. I gave a couple to the dogs tonight as I was baking something for tomorrow. They seemed...intri gued by them.

Raw EGGS with the shell?

Egg SHELLS are the worst thing, ever. I'm forever warning my grandchildren to "be careful cracking" the eggs while helping with breakfast after "sleepovers"

I know we're talking about dogs, but gag, choke, I could never hand my girls an egg in shell, raw or cooked, and say "have at it" I'd be sick all day. I feel green and sick just thinking about it.

I am sorry, Patty. I didn't mean to make you nauseous. If it makes you feel any better, I don't eat eggs at all, no way shape or form---unless you make it into a chocolate cake, LOL. If you can taste eggs or see eggs, it will not enter my mouth. In fact, it was the boiled egg smell along with the shell mess that made eggs an outside treat only.
I would also give them peanuts in the shell, and they would crack the shells and eat the peanuts too. So think of them as big round peanuts, LOL.

It wasn't just you Stella  Kiss it was the whole raw egg/shell chatter! Shocked

I can do Deviled Eggs..and omelets with cheese, but soft cooked eggs are pure pond slime.

I don't know why God just didn't make egg yolks green. I guess we had to wait for Dr. Seuss to oversee that task! Wink
