Fun Facts

NATURAL Homemade Insect Repellent: Place the following ingredients into a large container.
~One fat juicy lemon with a heavy rind sliced paper thin
~One Tablespoon of crushed Rosemary sprinkled over the lemon slices.
Pour 32 ounces of near-boiling water over the lemon and Rosemary. Cover with a clean cloth and let the liquid “steep” for at least 15 hours After the “steeping” time, pour the liquid through cheesecloth into a clean quart size canning jar, cover and store in the refrigerator. Transfer 4-6 ounces at a time into a spray bottle with a fine mist applicator. Spray liberally over the skin and coat. Avoid contact with the eyes. Repeat the application as frequently as required. OK for both humans and dogs.

Frozen Yogurt:
(1) 32oz. container of low-fat Greek plain yogurt
(2) 1 cup peanut butter
(3) 2 Tbls honey
(4) 1 ripe banana (optional)
Using a blender or food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze. When they are frozen hard, you can pop them out into zip-lock bags for storage in the freezer.

Frozen Doggie Yums:
(1) 2 cups low-sodium chicken or beef stock
(2) ½ lbs raw chicken or beef hearts cut into ½” sized small pieces
(3) Frozen cut up carrots (make sure carrots are cut into very small pieces)
Mix all ingredients together and freeze into ice cube trays. Store in zip-lock bags in freezer.

Meal Additive:

Doggie Meatloaf:

  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1.5 cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal
  • 3 Lg. eggs
  • 1/4 cup of Sunflower or Safflower Oil
  • 1/2 cup of frozen green bean 
  • 1/2 cup of frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1/4 cup of organic canned pumpkin
  • Optional: 1/2 cup raw goats milk (never use cows milk) added 


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • In a large bowl thoroughly combine all ingredients. Spred mixture into two 5 x 7 loaf pans.
  • Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until a nice crust on top
  • Let cool and cut into 1″ slices. Freeze slices individually.

I like to heat up 1/2 slice of meatloaf then mix in a 1/2 scoop of NuVet. I add this to 2/3 cup of dry kibble for a days feeding per dog.
