I found this recipe online and the fur kids like it alot. but these really pack on the pounds so unless your pup uses alot of extra energy or is on the thin side watch how much you give them

Thought I would share the recipe.

1 lb ground beef
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 jar all natural peanut butter
1 jar (smaller of the sizes) wheat germ
1 doz egg yolks
1 cup or so of flaked oats soaked in heavy cream

Mix up, form balls, freeze, feed as treats or food supplement.

Going to have to try this to help mia with her weight. She lost soooo much from the broken leg and surgery. Is it okay to feed this and kibble or is this a meal in itself until she gets to ideal weight??

ok you go to "fourms" click the sub topic food for the boxer belly go to the bottom of the page where it says show for the ________ and it has a drop down menu that lets you put in a time frame (it defaults to 2 weeks) and put "begining" in the blank and you will find tons of treat recipes and healthy snacks there are 4 pages of posts including home cooking, "cakes" and just about anything else that is good for them there are even a few "barf" recipies but most of the treats are simple and easy to make ther are some great pumpkin ones my kids love and since fresh pumpkin is cheap to get right now even better also you do not Have to use natural p/b store bought is ok too just watch the sugar content

We have been feeding these for awhile now..the girls love them! Stella (very underweight) when we got her benefited greatly from these yummy treats..I ALWAYS have some in my freezer..one Time I swear as I am sitting here, I came home from work, to find hubby eating a burger I had premaid that was in the freezer. By the time I had finished peeing in my pants from laughter, I informed him it was the dogs Treats..LMAO by that time he was about done (SO I SUGGEST LABELING THEM)..however this is the same man that can't tell the difference between dog shampoo and human shampoo, so......Back off ladies he is all mine..ROFLMAO

Can I cook these or do I have to feed them raw? I am very iffy about raw meat...I dont know if there could be anything in it and cooking the meat would assure me that anything bad is now cooked out of the meat.

raw is best nothing in the meat can hurt them they do not have the same digestive systems we do so even if it was 3 day old road kill it wouldnt hurt them leave them frozen and just give it to her she will love them

No don't cook them, it cooks out all the healthy stuff, Raw is great for dogs..if you are thinking of cooking them, then I wouldn't even waste your time doing it..it will in no way be the same thing....Dogs are great on RAW..that is their roots, that's what original dogs ate, raw meat!! So, this is a raw meat treat

LOL Original dogs..I mean wild dogs before they became domesticated and HUMANS invinted what they thought dogs should be eating..which is kibble

in the original post it says a dozen raw eggs, which is true, but you also add the shells..just didnt see that and wanted to make sure you knew that part as well: Here is my recipe (I have always used this one and it varies slightly)
Satin Balls

  • 5 lbs raw hamburger (the cheapest kind)
  • 1/2 lg box Total Cereal
  • 1/2 lg box Oatmeal
  • 1/2 Jar wheat germ
  • 3/4 cup veg oil
  • 3/4 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 5 raw eggs AND shells
  • 5 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together like you would a meatloaf. Divided into 5 quart freezer bags (roll into balls approximately the size of a tennis ball) and freeze. Thaw as needed and feed raw.

The cream cheese is a great add it makes them bind better I have used your recipe and while mine will eat them they are not over the top about them these that I got from a friend on another boxer website mine do flips over
also these do not use much grain like the cereal based ones or gelatin which does not always agree with their tummys either so for grain free pups and raw fed pups they do not cause tummy issues
