Does putting a raw egg on you dog's food give it a shiny coat?

My grandma tells me that, and we used to give my dog a egg once or twice a week. His coat is gorgeous, and he's never gotten remotely sick. I wanted to know what everyone else's opinion was on this? and has any one else ever done it?

I have never heard of this before, it's not something I would have ever thought of doing, giving a dog an egg. Obviously other mylotters have heard of it and are doing it so it must be true. I hate to think of the dog breath smell after meal times , ha,ha,ha , have fun.

Yes, my grandmother told me the same thing! I had a toy collie named Penny and this DID make her coat shiney! Some folks tell you to be careful of raw eggs because if they are a bit old, there is danger of salmonella(food poisoning.) But remember that many things that make us sick don't make dogs sick, or make them much less sick than us. And one egg certainly(if refridgerated) could do no harm! My dogs(I have owned about 8 or 9 over the years) also like scrambled eggs with bits of bacon in them. But don't give your dog too much human food. Dog food is designed for dogs and cat food for cats. But the egg things is fine-I have a vet friend who does the same thing.

Thats funny, they told me the same thing. And I have done it and so far so true. SO I agree with this cause I have done the same for my own pets.
