~ HIGH CALORIE MEATBALLS ~
Unfortunately our wonderful friends aren't always healthy. Many suffer from the dreaded "C": Cancer. On top of all the other horrirs, this disease, like many others, makes it difficult for our beloved pets to maintain a healthy weight. "Fattening them up" seems like an almost impossible task. However, there are things we can do, things we can give our hounds. Our member Sue Halteman has graciously shared a recipie that has been quite effective at bulking up greyhounds in the past...
1 lb. cooked ground meat.
12 scrambled eggs.
1 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup cooked oatmeal
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup peanut butter
1 tbls. molasses
- Thoroughly mix ingredients in a large bowl
- Shape mixture into balls, 1 tablespoon each (1 teaspoon for small dogs)
- Place meatballs on cookie sheet and freeze
- Once frozen, store in an airtight container
- Remove meatballs as needed and thaw completely before serving
Note: Serve your HEALTHY greyhound no more than three per day
Thank you Sue Halteman for sharing!
