Does your blue pit bull need to pack on some weight?
If your dog is sick, malnourished, or has no appetite, it can be frustrating getting trying to get them to eat.
Enter: satin balls.
Satin Balls is a canine recipe with raw meat meant to help dogs gain weight. They’re delicious little balls of meat and grains that your blue pit bull puppy is going to LOVE.
The only downside to traditional satin balls is that they are not considered a complete and balanced meal (Due to lack of vitamins & minerals).
This should provide you with about 10-20 servings of Patties (depending on the size of your dog). For a smaller batch, just reduce the amount of each ingredient.
- 10 lbs of high-fat ground beef
- 1 large box (1 lb 2 oz) of Total cereal (~12 cups)
- 1 large box (2 lbs 10 oz) of uncooked oatmeal (~15 cups)
- 10 raw eggs
- 10 packages of Knox unflavored gelation
- 1 and ¼ cup olive oil or flax oil
- 1 and ¼ cup unsulfured molasses
- Mix together well in a huge bowl.
- Form into balls or patties.
- Serve them to your dog raw.
- Store them in zip-lock bags in the freezer.
- Thaw them one at a time when you’re ready to serve them.
- Everything is served raw—even the eggs and hamburger. (It might sound gross to you, but your dog will love it.)
- When mixing the ingredients together, the whole thing is going to be one big gooey mess. So make sure to do your mixing in a big bowl. Putting down some newspaper wouldn’t hurt either.
- If you prefer to do all the mixing at once, you can make extra Patties and freeze them for later use.
- Whole Wheat Total comes in two sizes; go for the larger box, which is 1 lb 2 oz.
- For oatmeal, you can get Quaker Old Fashioned, or feel free to get a cheaper generic brand. The large round containers are 2 lbs 10 oz in size.
- Because satin balls are eaten raw, it’s a good idea to wash your dog’s bowl (or whatever you’re serving them on) after each serving of Patties.
