Getting Back In Shape
Sometimes after an illness or having pups, dogs need a little something extra to help them get some meat back on them fast. Here's an old kennel recipe for just such occasions: You can feed alone or add with kibble. Feed until the dog begins to look like you think they should.
Satin Balls (or Fatburgers)
5 lb. cheap ground
10 egg yolks, beaten
10 envelopes of unflavored Knox Gelatin
12 oz. jar of wheat germ
1 large box Total cereal
1 cup corn oil
1 cup molasses
1 tbsp salt
In a very large bowl or pan (a turkey roasting pan works well) pour in cereals.
Measure and pour in corn oil then measure and pour molasses from the same cup which will keep molasses from sticking to the cup.
Add all ingredients except ground beef, mix with a spoon, and let sit for 30 minutes to soften the cereal.
Add ground beef and, wearing rubber gloves, thoroughly knead and mix for about 5 minutes.
Divide into tennis ball size portions and form into patties.
Slip into individual baggies and freeze.
Thaw as needed and feed raw. DO NOT COOK!
