INGREDIENTS:
10 pounds of cheap hamburger meat

1 large box of Total cereal

1 large box of oatmeal (uncooked)

1 jar of wheat germ

10 eggs

1-1/4 c. vegetable oil

1-1/4 c. unflavoured molasses

10 small packages of unflavored gelatin

pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS:

Mix all ingredients together well, much like a meatloaf

Put into separate freezer bags and freeze, thawing out as needed.

Make little meatballs and place them on top of the food

It puts weight on in a very short time not to mention adding gloss the coat. Use it every day when showing -- does not produce diarrhea. It can be fed alone or, to save money, with their regular food. If you are unable to obtain all the ingredients (i.e.-the molasses and the unflavoured gelatin), it will still work wonders on your dog.

BETTY LEWIS' SATIN BALLS
If you don't like the Satin Ball recipe b/c of the sugar- laden Total Cereal. Here's the fat ball recipe that helped put weight on Druid.

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.

has the vet said your dog was underweight?

my dog's a couple pounds underweight but completely healthy according to the vet. he's a small-sized dog, so a couple pounds would be 'relatively significant'...but the vet said he looks great and shouldnt be a problem.

weight isn't necessary the best indicator of health.

you feed it raw, but I'm not sure I'd worry too much about it. if your dog is healthy, he'll pick up weight more naturally by feeding him a good regular diet. I used to worry that my Hammie was too thin, but I'd hate to see him just pack on fat...and those recipes are loaded with it. there's a huge difference between thin and tooooo skinny. some dogs just take longer to fill out naturally. believe me, your vet would tell you if your dog looked unnaturally thin, and I wouldn't worry about a couple pounds.

Just flop a TBL or two of full fat plain (unsweetened and unflavored) yogurt on the kibble at every meal, add a scrambled egg every couple of days, pack a Kong with natural PB for her during the day, etc. This should get her weight up. You're doing it right, btw. Trying to pack it on too fast isn't healthy. She's getting adequate food and good exercise and she will fill out eventually.

I'd reserve the SatinBalls for a dog that is off it's feed, not for an obviously healthy if slightly underweight dog.

Hey, got pics?

I feed a version of the Satin Balls sometimes, especially for Bimmer, who burns energy like crazy (mostly wrestling with two grrrrls that are each literally twice his size), but instead of the total I usually use Kashi or - when I can find it - an old fashioned cereal called Uncle Sam.
