Satan Balls are used to help when a dog needs to gain weight.
Satin Balls appear to have developed in the show community, as an uncooked, homemade dog food to improve coats and put weight on a skinny dog, quickly. Many recipe variations have proliferated on the internet, but a few are mentioned frequently. The dog rescue community also uses Satin Balls to put weight on underweight dogs. The following recipe combines the best elements of two of the most common recipes circulating on the internet.
Satin Balls: 10 pounds raw ground beef, 70%-85% lean 18 ounces Total Multi-grain cereal (or other vitamin-fortified, unsweetened cereal 2 pounds oatmeal, uncooked regular or quick oats (not instant oats) 20 ounces wheat germ 1 ¼ cup canola oil 1 ¼ cup unsulfured molasses 10 hard-boiled eggs and shells, crushed and minced 10 envelopes unflavored gelatin ¼ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon minced garlic
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Divide into freezer bags in daily ration portions (some divide into 10 equal portions, others 14, and I divide it into one-pound packs). Flatten out the filled bags to expel air and completely fill the bags, and to reduce freezing/thawing times. Seal and place the bags in the freezer in a single layer. Once frozen, the bags can be stacked. For travel, the frozen bags can be placed in a cooler and used to chill other items until needed. Break thawed meat mixture into chunks or roll into meatballs. Feed raw as a meal or supplement.
