This recipe is great for dogs who need to put on weight. It was originally posted on Wellpet and is a complete food for your dog. It's easy to mix up a batch, and easy to travel with, as the frozen packs take awhile to thaw.
- 10 lbs hamburger meat (the cheapest kind)
- 1 box of Total cereal (or comparable natural brand)
- 1 box oatmeal
- 1 jar wheat germ
- 1 1⁄4 cups vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄4 cups unsulphured molasses
- 10 raw eggs
- 10 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1 pinch salt
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, like you were making meatloaf.
- Divide into 10 portions and put in freezer bags or other containers.
- Thaw as needed and feed to your dog.
- (Do not cook.).
I have made these for my dogs and they loved every bite. But be careful - these can make a dog fat FAST! Wouldn't want them to eat this all the time. One tip: form the mixture into bite-size balls (or bullet shape) according to the size of your dog's mouth. Freeze portions in ziplocks and thaw as needed. The smaller shape makes defrosting a little quicker, and you can hand feed without a lot of mess.
I made this for a friend's dog who needs some extra weight on her. I started out mixing the ingredients in a dishpan, but quickly moved to a 5 gallon bucket. LOL Putting it together was easy. I had to laugh, though, at the pinch of salt considering almost everything else is the entire package. My dog gave it her seal of approval. She cleaned up the bucket and dishpan for me. LOL The otehr dog is eating it, and we'll see in a bit if she puts some weight on. I may just make some for my own dog to use as a treat. Thanks.
