    preparation instructions

    This is a small batch. Mix all ingredients together like a meatloaf. Roll into small meat balls and place on cookie sheet. Freeze. When frozen, transfer to zipper freezer bags. Thaw a few to feed as needed.

    Feed 1-2 a day as a supplement to kibble. If satin balls is the only source of food, you will need to feed 4 or more daily depending on the size of the dog and the size of your meat balls. The ingredients in satin balls are very digestible and provide a good mix of protein, carbohydrate and fat as well as vitamins. These are great to feed a dog recovering from surgery, illness or trauma or when you need to tempt an appetite. Note: pay close attention to your dogs' condition and weight as satin balls can really pack on weight.

    A word of caution: Satin balls are not baked or cooked in any way. They are fed raw. Be sure to wash your hands well after handling
