What about egg yolk?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just wondering whatcha all think about giving kitties egg yolk for their coats. Is this a good thing to do, bad or what. If not egg yolk, are there other helpful foods for a longhair that would be helpful? Thanks!

Mine get egg yolk once or twice a week when well as a food supplement and more often if they are sick and don't want to eat normal food.

My wife likes egg white omelletes so rather than just toss the yoke down the drain I was wondering about giving just the yoke to the kitty for his long coat. I used to do this with my long hair dog and it seemed to work wonders but I don't want to give Persi something that may not be good for him.

Raw egg yolks are fine but raw egg whites are very dangerous to cats. Cooked I believe are fine.

One source I quote here, but there are many that say the same thing:
Raw egg whites - Raw egg whites are not to be fed as they contain avidin which binds to biotin in the intestinal tract and prevents it from being absorbed - leading to a biotin deficiency. Cooked egg whites, on the other hand, are an excellent source of phosphorus-free protein. This is a great additive as long as the cat has not shown any allergy/intolerance for egg protein.
