Satin Balls for Puppies [Recipe Included]

I received a recipe from another breeder (Heather Goines) and wanted to share with you:

Satin Balls for Puppies

1 lb Ground Turkey
1 lb 80% hamburger
8 oz. cottage cheese
1/2 cup non-flavored yogurt
1 cup Total cereal
1½ cups uncooked oatmeal
1 raw egg
6 Tablespoons wheat germ
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (Olive Oil)
2 Tablespoons un-sulfured molasses
1 teaspoon baby vitamin drops (NuVet vitamins – powdered form)
Pinch of Salt

Mix well in large bowl and freeze in balls or loaves. Thaw out just enough for a meal or to supplement current diet.

Satin Balls Original Recipe

– for weight gain or supplementation

The following recipe was sent to Wellpet by Diana Carreon, RNC. It quickly became one of the most requested posts on Wellpet.

10 lbs hamburger meat
1 large box of Total cereal
1 large box of Oatmeal
1 large jar of Wheat Germ
1 ¼ cup vegetable oil
1 ¼ cup of un-sulfured molasses
10 raw eggs and shells
10 envelopes of unflavored gelatin
Pinch of Salt
A Tablespoon of baby vitamin drops

Mix all ingredients together, much like you would a meatloaf. Divide into 10 quart freezer bags and freeze. Thaw as needed and feed raw!

Recommended changes:
I would use Olive Oil instead of the Vegetable Oil as it is healthier. Knox Gelatin now has a Joint variety. Flax-seed Oil or Flax seed would also be beneficial to add. Some use these recipes as a full “raw” diet, but most use it to supplement to put on weight, extra boost before a show, or to nurse a sick dog back to health.

Have a great day!
