This is a recipe that has been generated by many and I would like to share it with you.
It has been changed I have added some things and changed things.
Here is my version.
10 pounds of hamburger
1 large box of Total cereal
1 large container of Oatmeal
1 jar of wheat germ- found at Wal-Mart in food isles (good source of Vitamin E and Folic Acid)
1 1/4 cup of veg oil
I put two jars of molasses – original calls for way less
12 raw eggs- original calls for 10 but why put 2 eggs back in fridge?
12 envelopes of unflavored gelatin- oiginal calls for 10 but they come in a 4 pk.
pinch of salt
My added ingredients:
1 cup Flax Seed- 2600 mg of Omega 3 Oils & good source of fiber
1 cup Peanut Butter- good source of protein
1 can of drained peas
6 carrots shredded and then put in a Ninja and add a little H20 to make mushy
Approx 20 kelp tabs crushed no more than 2 tsp.
1 can of pineapple chunks, usually need to cut it even smaller
Berries- Strawberries, blue berries, raspberries (found in many natural foods like Bill Jack- add as many as you would like usually 2 cups)
Cottage Cheese or Plain Yogurt (good for pregnant females)
Puppy milk replacer
Wheat Germ Oil (we get that a farm store) follow label for how much
Rice Bran Oil (we get at farm store) follow label for how much
Above are added ingredients.
I do not add all the ingredients but at least a couple.
Just to have some extra’s depending on what I might pick up at the store or what I have at the house
How to make:
Mix all ingredients together much like a meatloaf.
I mix it in a 5 gallon brand new bucket or a bucket that I only use for satin balls.
You do not cook this, it is fed raw.
It originally called for you to place meatball size portions on a cookie sheet place in freezer until set up and then place in freezer bags.
I do not do that, I just place in freezer bags and take out of freezer when I want to use them.
Place in fridge until thawed and spoon out to the dogs.
The dogs do not care if they are balls or on a spoon!
To increase weight on a dog
Coats and skin look and feel better and they stop itching
Their eyes seem more brighter
Can be used as a whole meal
Great for dog shows
Picky Eaters- never had a dog turn them down
My personal favorite – I give mine these as treats as they are way better than
what is store bought in my opinion. What I put in them is what I get out of them!
Depending on what you add and what you don’t add.
If you just add the top/first ingredients it runs about $16.00 + the price of hamburger per pound.
when I add extras it can be more like $20-25
I’ll tell you what I use and do, you can use your own judgment whether you want to follow in my footsteps.
