I had an interesting experience this week. A friend gave me a dozen duck eggs and I boiled them and gave them to Gaucho on top of his enzymed kibble. After four days of eggs he started having yellow poop. Some segments were normal brown and others were yellow. The yellow segments had bits of yolk in them. I looked up yellow poop and got spooked that it might be a liver issue. But once I stopped feeding eggs everything is back to normal. I looked up feeding eggs and one site mentioned that they contain enzyme inhibitors. I guess I overdid it. Next time I will feed in moderation and be more careful to crush up the egg and mix it with his kibble so that the enzymes get a chance to work on it.

Thanks Barb for sharing this.... very Interesting!!!!  I do know that when giving eggs (chicken) they warn not to give just yolk or white, but to always give both together... there's a chemical reason for this but i forgot exactly what it is.  I wonder if because duck eggs have a greater portion of yolk to the white.... if that maybe skewed the balance / or was simply too much egg .... given every day?


I give all my dogs raw (chicken) eggs well mixed every day.... BUT.... i split one egg between 3 dogs.... this has not caused a problem with my pups.


 Glad to hear that Gaucho is doing well.

Olesia, owned by Izzy, a 35lb SWD, Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.3, Stable 9+ yrs! Once stable, was able to reduce enzymes to only 1/2 tsp of Enzymes (use EnzymeDiane's 6x) with each meal, but after almost 4 years of stabilization... had to increase the amount of enzymes to 3/4 teaspoon with each meal. Fed various grain-free kibble+real meat, 6x pancreatin enzymes from EnzymeDiane., gave 1 tsp of coconut oil one day and 1 tsp salmon oil next day, and also give canned sardines packed without salt or canned herring for extra omega oils.... until she developed Diabetes and now cannot tolerate higher fat foods.

In Feb 2013, Izzy developed a very serious condition called IMHA which she (thankfully) beat and is now in remission. We also discovered that now, at 8+ years old, she not only has EPI, but also Diabetes, Low Thyroid and High Cholesterol.  Izzy was able to receive excellent care because of the kindness of so many here on epi4dogs and  is currently  doing extra-ordinarily well. If anyone could spend a day with Izzy, they would never guess that she has any health problems!  Because of Izzy's concurrent conditions of Diabetes and High Cholesterol we had to make changes to our daily EPI routine. We had to alter the fiber, type of fiber and the fat content her diet. She is now on an all home-made diet which she does best on and has even been able to reduce the insuline (Vetsulin:pork-based insulin) . Because of the diet change to all home-made i no longer worry about hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia- -she is much more even-keeled with a diet of sweet potato, a lean meat/fish, sometimes a free range egg, cottage cheese,  fish oil+vitamins and bone meal. We tried Novolin N a human synthetic RNA insulin.... but Izzy did not do well on it. aside from all of Izzy's health issues.... she continues to wake up every day full of joy and a great sense of humor!

I am not a vet.  All of my suggestions/recommendations are based on personal expereinces, observations, information gleaned from EPI research, and information shared with me by EPI researchers....that hopefully may help others. Please always share anything and everything recommended on this forum with your vet.

The yellow yolk will colour, and maybe too much protein, you live and learn

What i have noticed here that there are some dog foods that dont contain eggs so one can assume from that some dogs are allergic to them...Maddie was fine on them but she had one or two a week ...
