Can Dogs Eat Duck Eggs? When it is or isn’t an Emergency

Duck eggs aren’t any different to the eggs of other birds like chicken and quail. For most dogs, eating the content of duck eggs is fine as long as it’s in moderation.

Like chicken eggs, duck eggs are rich in protein and important nutrients like zinc, magnesium, and selenium. Most dogs should already be getting the important nutrients from their regular dog food but it doesn’t hurt to supplement it with a healthy treat like duck eggs.

For safety reasons, we would suggest letting your dog eat cooked duck eggs as opposed to raw ones. The main reason is due to the risk of bacteria such as salmonella. There is also the risk of avidin, which can contribute to biotin deficiency, but one raw egg is very unlikely to cause much harm to your dog.
