Recipe for Fat Balls

Submitted by Gaelen Gates, Whippet Owner in California


I have had luck with giving Rocket fat balls. This isn't the exact recipe I used but is generally the same...

Also, we feed her Nutro "Natural Choice High Energy" food (which has a picture of a Whippet on the front of the bag) which is high in fat and protein, and helps her keep weight on. Good luck!

For the finicky, the super-skinny, or those recovering from an illness.
