“This recipe is great for dogs who need to put on weight. It was originally posted on Wellpet and is a complete food for your dog. It's easy to mix up a batch, and easy to travel with, as the frozen packs take a while to thaw. (The egg shells counteract a protein in the yolk that can unbalance a dog otherwise.)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 lbs hamburger meat (the cheapest kind with at least 20% fat)
  • 1 (16 ounce) box Total cereal (or comparable natural brand)
  • 1 (42 ounce) box instant oatmeal
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar wheat germ
  • 1 14 cups vegetable oil (not soybean)
  • 1 14 cups unsulphured molasses
  • 10 eggs (raw with shells crushed!)
  • 10 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, like you were making meatloaf.
  2. Divide into 10 portions and put in freezer bags or other containers.
  3. Thaw as needed and feed to your dog.
  4. (Do not cook.).
