Satin Balls

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 the fridge?
12 envelopes of unflavored gelatin- original calls for 10 but they come in a 4 pk.
pinch of salt

My added ingredients:
I usually pick a couple from this list.
1 cup Flax Seed- 2600 mg of Omega 3 Oils & a good source of fiber
1 cup Peanut Butter- a good source of protein- Check labels
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 (For poop eaters)
Berries- Strawberries, blueberries, 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 (if feeding for 6-9-month-old)
Baby cereal
Wheat Germ Oil (we get at farm store) follow the label for how much
Rice Bran Oil (we get at farm store) follow label for how much

Other things you can add:
Green beans but put in Ninja
Broccoli- High in Fiber and Vit C
Mango- A, B6, C, E also has potassium and both beta carotene and alpha-carotene-  (REMOVE PIT) Ninja it to mush.
Sweet Potatoes – E, A, B-6, and C, as well as calcium, iron, folate, potassium, copper, thiamine and iron.
Pumpkin- Fiber, Vit A and anti-oxidants to help alleviate diarrhea and constipation and to promote his overall cardiovascular health.

Recently I have been adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to the mixture but I try to mix it in really good.
Just don’t want a lot of it all in one spot of the mix.
Just like making a cake I mix all the eggs and oil together(wet ingredients first) with the vinegar being added at the same time.

On top of that if super skinny:
Add Dyne it comes in 32 ounces and 1 gallon.
I personally make a HUGE batch of Satin Balls and if I had to use this I would do at least 1/2 of a 32-ounce bottle.
You can find Dyne some times local, feed stores, vets, Bomgaars if you are in the midwest, Revival and Amazon just are some places.

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 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 the 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 the freezer when I want to use them.
Place in the fridge until thawed and spoon out to the dogs.
The dogs do not care if they are balls or on a spoon!

Uses:
To increase the weight on a dog
Coats and skin look and feel better and they stop itching
Their eyes seem 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!

Cost:
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

Liability:
I’ll tell you what I use and do, you can use your own judgment whether you want to follow in my footsteps.
