How many eggs should I scramble for my dog? A Comprehensive Guide

Can My Dog Get Salmonella from Eating Eggs?

As noted previously, the cooking part of preparing an egg for your dog is crucial. Uncooked or undercooked eggs too often carry Salmonella bacteria, which dogs are susceptible to contracting.

The worst thing about dogs contracting Salmonellosis (the illness caused by Salmonella infection) is that it is zoonotic, which means a dog can pass its Salmonella on to the humans they come in contact with.

That means your dog could infect you, your children, or even visitors.

Salmonella can exist in any uncooked and unpasteurized egg, whether from the farm or in the typical grocery or supermarket. In dogs, Salmonellosis symptoms include fever, lethargy, a refusal to eat, diarrhea, or vomiting. There are many other possible symptoms, but these are the most common.

When your dog demonstrates any one of those symptoms, it would be best to take them to the Vet to undergo thorough testing.

The dogs most at risk for Salmonellosis are older dogs and puppies. However, any dog can become infected.

Thankfully, however, cooking eggs properly kills most Salmonella bacteria, making scrambled eggs (without any butter or onion and spices) healthy for many dogs.

How Many Eggs can a Dog eat in a Day?

A dog that eats too many eggs is not at risk of cholesterol health problems. They don’t experience the same health issues that humans sometimes can if there is too much cholesterol.

Dogs can experience an upset stomach with too much of ANY food. If your dog has stolen a plate of seasoned or fried eggs, then it might get temporary stomach upset or runny stools.

A real risk is actually the number of calories. Dog obesity is real and a problem! Eggs are calorie-dense, and too many can result in an overweight dog. Given that over a third of dogs in the USA are obese – we need to be careful with the diet!
