What he seems to like, (15 year old lab mix) and will eat the whole bowl of wet dog food down, if it is topped with a raw egg. ( which he would not prior to this)

Yes, I read the pros and cons of the raw egg thing, but end of the day if it gets my old buddy to eat well, I will take the risk of salmonella.

What do you think Dr doug

Mom fed our dog a raw egg with bread, lots of protein and he loved it. When he died at 14 his coat was still healthy. Go for it. Why would salmonella be a risk with fresh egg?

Apparently, from my understanding raw eggs do, present a risk of salmonella. But on the other hand they seem to make his meals very appetizing to him. which was not happening before.

So dog that won't eat, VS one that will. I think I will take the risk

I just cook an extra egg for our Lhasa who is past 13, now and beginning to slow down a bit. He loves a cooked egg. he eats his dry dog food, too, and cooked chicken and canned dog food.
