SATIN BALLS – The Original Recipe
This recipe is intended for adult dogs and should not be fed to puppies. Puppies, especially medium and large breeds, must be grown slowly and kept very lean to avoid skeletal problems (including hip dysplasia) in their adult lives.
10 pounds hamburger meat [the cheapest kind]
1 lg. box of Total cereal
1 lg. box oatmeal
1 jar of wheat germ
1 1/4 cup veg oil
1 1/4 cup of unsulfured molasses
10 raw eggs AND shells
10 envelopes of unflavored gelatin
pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together, much like you would a meatloaf.
Divide into 10 quart freezer bags and freeze.
Thaw as needed and feed raw!
However, if you just want to try them out or have a small dog, I recipe this scaled down version (1/10th or the original).
1 pound cheap hamburger (for high fat %)
1 1/3 cups Total cereal
1 1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal
1 raw egg
6 tablespoons wheat germ
1 package Knox unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons unsulphured molasses
Pinch of salt
***The only thing I suggest you change is the oil; vegtable oil has no health benefit, so substitute it with an oil that does (like flax seed oil which is high in healthy omega 3s).
“All my dogs go crazy over this stuff…but you have to be careful, it will put weight on the dogs pretty fast if you feed enough….I feed a pack a day…half in am , half in pm.”
“When I want to increase the weight on a dog, I feed more; so far I haven’t got to the point where they won’t eat anymore, and believe me, Satin has eaten a lot at one setting. It will put on the weight, make the coats soft shiny”
“The dogs stop all the itching and chewing at their coats/skin, their eyes get this bright look and the energy level goes out the roof.”
