    I've seen a few posts with different withholding suggestions on the eggs when dosing Valbazen. Is there a significant threat to eating them within 3-5 days? For the eggs falling inside the withhold time window, are they done for, or could they at least be salvaged for the incubator? Do cats eat eggs? Other uses for them other than tossing them to the raccoons and coyotes?

    I'm not sure about trying to incubate the eggs (I wouldn't risk it.) The reason for tossing the eggs is that any animal or person will get a dose of the worm medication, so I wouldn't do it. Anytime you use worm meds or antibiotics and feed them to yourself or animals, you are just risking worm or bacterial resistance down the road when you need those drugs.
