Fudo is going through a quite extended coat blow at the moment (been going in dribs and drabs for about 8 weeks now as opposed to the usual shed like a demon for 4 weeks). Blowing his coat always puts him off his tucker and I reckon he's lost a few kilos during the last couple of weeks. As a result I decided that I would make him some satin balls.
Another thing is that I've only ever fed Fudo Orijen (grain free), Eagle Pack Holistic, Artemis Maximal (grain free) and Evo (grain free). Each time that I've tried him on the Eagle Pack he gets the squits (not really squits, but definitately not good consistency). That is by no means definitive I know, but as a result of that, I steer away from all grains, thinking that may be the issue with the Eagle Pack.
So....all the recipes I can find for satin balls have oats and wheat germ in them. I can just leave these things out I know, but does anyone know if wheat germ (remembering that wheat is supposed to be one of the "worst" grains for dogs) has the "bad stuff" taken out of it?
ETA: I know what wheat germ is, i.e. the "embryo" of the seed, but does that mean that the "bad" part is gone?
