~~~Homemade Food/Treats~~~

Satin Balls

Satin Balls Half Recipe --
5 lbs cheap hamburger (for high fat %)
1/2 large box Total cereal (about 6 cups cereal)
1/2 large box uncooked oatmeal (about 7.5 cups oats)
5 raw eggs(shell and all)
1/2 of 15oz jar wheat germ (about 2 cups)
5 packages Knox unflavored gelatin
5/8 cup vegetable oil (this is pretty close to 2/3 cup) or Flaxseed oil
5/8 cup unsulphered molasses
pinch of salt

I roll into 1 inch balls and freeze.
The half recipe, using hamburger that is 20% fat calories, has 12,400 calories. This is great for putting on weight or for coats. Show dogs get this just before show to fatten them up and shine!

Poochie Cooked Meat Cakes

1 1/2 cups brown rice
3 cups water
2 large potatoes and or sweet potatoes, grated fine
4 large carrots, grated fine
2 large celery stalks, chopped fine
6 pounds ground beef or ground turkey, lamb, fish, rabbit, venison or any combination to = 6 lbs
8 eggs
1 dash salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats and/or Total Cereal to = 1 and 1/2 cups
1 cup blueberries


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

In a medium saucepan, combine the rice with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, uncovered, and cook 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool several minutes, then fluff with a fork and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, carrots, celery, ground beef, and eggs. Mix ingredients together using your hands or a sturdy spoon. Add salt, olive oil, rolled oats, blueberries and rice; mix well.

I pick what size measuring cup size I want to make and fill and them dump on a foil lined cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes, or until surface feels set. Cool on a rack 10 minutes or longer.

Refrigerate or freeze in sealed plastic bags. NOTE: Do not feed to dogs while still hot.
I alternate this or mix with dry for feedings or my homemade kibble.
 If I am in a pinch for vegis I have thrown in a bag of mixed frozen vegis also. Be creative!!
Add every other day a 1 tbls of cottage cheese or yogurt, organ meats, chicken necks (older dogs).
and a multi vitamin daily.

1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
1/2 tsp. baking powder

~~~Yummy for doggies tummy~~~


Peanut Butter Treats

3 cups oat flour**
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 large egg
water, enough to moisten

Mix ingredients together well. Form into a ball, roll out to 1/4 inch thickness with a rolling pin. Cut into desired shapes, place on cookie sheets and bake in 325 oven for 30 minutes, or until browned. Turn off oven, leaving biscuits in the oven until cooled. These biscuits may be frozen, but keep well for a couple of weeks if they are very dry and crisp.

**I make my own oat flour by mixed rolled oats in the blender until it makes a powder


Schnauzers Of Taylor Kibble
The kibble was so easy to make.
I used left over turkey :0)

My basic recipe was:

4 cups of wheat flour (or mixed flours)
2 cups rolled oats
3 cups of cooked brown rice
2 cup powderd milk
4 whole eggs
1/3 cup olive oil
3 cups of liquid (so I pureed the turkey and a can of mixed vegis and added some pumpkin and fresh rosemary with 1 can of chicken broth)
I also added some salt

Mix dry into wet ingredients. Should be stiff like bread dough. Spread between 2 greased cookies sheets.
Cooked at 350 for 1 hr. Let cool and then broke into small kibble pieces. Left in the oven over night with light on. Can be stored in freezer.
