Too much raw egg white can cause a biotin deficiency.
Initial symptoms of biotin deficiency include:
1. Dry skin 2. Seborrheic dermatitis 3. Fungal infections 4. Rashes including red, patchy ones near the mouth (erythematous periorofacial macular rash) 5. Fine and brittle hair 6. Hair loss or total baldness (alopecia)
If left untreated, neurological symptoms can develop, including:
1. Mild depression, which may progress to profound lassitude and, eventually, to somnolence 2. Changes in mental status 3. Generalized muscular pains (myalgias) 4. Hyperesthesias and paresthesias
Hi and Welcome to the group!!! Your Fuzz are cuties! Love the pic of everyone in the Gator!! Hearts and gizzards are muscle meat, you want to find liver, kidney or some other type of "secreating" type organ to use in your soups for organs... Chicken livers are pretty easy to come across, they even sell them at WalMart.
Hmmm. I feel terrible....we're on the second page of awesome information and I"ve not even popped in to say hello So sorry and very remiss of me Please feel free to prowl, ask questions and just enjoy. You furkids are beautiful. Don't beat yourself up about what and how you've been feeding (even the vets are too up on this at times ) As you've found out there's a ton of information here...I hope I will be seeing you and your little ones around....good luck with your new diet trials and investigations ciao
I picked up a mortar and pestle today and was able to add eggshell and freeze-dried liver to the soup today. The girls loved it!! I think it smells better as a recipe too. Midna and Mabel are eating from a spoon now rather than the syringe. Mimosa resisted but after I gave her some with a syringe, she realized mommy is NOT trying to kill her and ate from the spoon too. They each ate about 1/2 to 2/3 of a teaspoon of the soup. It's really not runny; about like yogurt. YAY for progress!!
