Default Satin Balls or Fat Balls

Does anyone have a good recipe for Satin Balls?

This is the recipe I used:

1 pound cheap hamburger (for high fat %)
1 1/3 cups Total cereal
1 1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal
1 raw egg
6 tablespoons wheat germ
1 package Knox unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons unsulphured molasses
Pinch of salt

Which seems to be the most typical one? It got her to gain weight so that was all I cared about!

Thank you so much! Yeah, Lil' Sis is growing like a weed and I'd feel better if she was a little heavier.

i strongly recommend against putting even so much as 2 ounces of extra weight on a growing dwarf breed

Oh, that's interesting. I've never heard that.

I have been told to be careful on stairs and to make sure that she's excercised on grass and not pavement, but I've never had anyone say anything to me about weight on a puppy.

Now, I keep my adult girl very trim and my puppy is on the skinny side, though she does have heavier bone then my adult which could be a part of that.

I'll ask around and get some other opinions on that if you don't mind. Not that you are incorrect necessarily, but I'd rather get that kind of information from people I know face to face who have direct experience with raising cardigan puppies.

I definitely agree that growing puppies should be kept ribby. They're going to go through growth spurts and level out a little but... growing puppies should be kept thin. It can only help their bones develop normally.

That advice came to me directly FROM a Cardigan breeder, one of my dog mentors

We only did satin balls because trey was so thin in his later years. We were desperate.

I like puppies very lean.

I'd still like to see a few other recipes if anyone is willing to share? Bobsie could definitely use some extra weight.
ETA do you cook them or serve raw? Sorry if that sounds totally stupid, but I don't want to do it wrong.

Raw

There's grain free versions as well, here's one:

1lb ground beef
2-3 eggs with shells
1 pint cottage cheese (full fat)
1 envelope Knox unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons fish oil/coconut oil/EVOO
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons raw honey
