Default Satin Balls

Wasn't there a thread on Satin Balls here a couple years ago? If so, I can't find it anymore.

Zeus is just over 2 years old now and he gets satin balls every day with his dry food. His coat is beautiful, full and shines in the sun light. People comment on him all the time. We figured it had to be due to his diet.

Isis is starting to get small amounts of satin balls in here food too and her coat is really starting to fill in. It's starting to shine too.

So, anyone else still using the satin ball recipe?

Jon.

I only use it on severly underweight dogs that are adults. But that is with giant breeds. Don't want them to gain too much weight too fast.

Do you cook them or feed raw? I've read that they can be fed either way, but have never come across cooking instructions. My mom is not a fan of feeding raw bug has just adopted an underweight GSD, I thought I might give her the recipe.

We cook our satin balls but I know the recipe is written to be raw. Of course I can't find our recipe right now so I can't tell you how long or at what temperature to cook them...

I am so glad I found this thread. I am fostering a severely malnourished female GSD very large and a senior at that! I am a huge fan of the satin balls, used it to put weight on a previous foster FAST 2 1/2 pounds in 4 days, and have slowly transitioned my new girl to the diet-satin balls- with a small portion of dry dog food, rice, pumpkin, and yougurt and small amounts of chicken. When she initally came to me about 12 days ago she had loose bowls, but then after getting things changed she has been fine, then all of a sudden last night loose bowls again and it smells awful. I was getting some form in her poop after the first few days, but all of a sudden this yesterday and today? ANY HELP OUT THERE????

We used it for our new girl, it put some weight on her fast & she looks great!
We feed it raw & we've cut her portion in half to maintain her weight.
