I thought that it would be nice to see some recipes that are fun for your pets. Some are tasty and others are better choices than heavy duty chemical bombs! I really don’t like to use those heavy duty chemicals on my dogs or my family!

NingXia Ice cube treats   ice cubes

  • mix 2 Tbsp of NingXia Red and 4 oz water
  • fill ice tray and freeze
  • serve as a treat

 

 

 

The coolest ever ice cube treat filled with toys!!

Fill a stock pot with water and toss some toys, balls and whatever in. Stick it in the freezer until it is frozen through. Dump it out onto a tray on a hot day, for all kinds of fun.

What else do I do? I add Nutritional yeast to my dogs food. I let up some in the winter, although I really shouldn’t , because it is just that …Nutritional! I use it because it naturally repels fleas and ticks.  Nutritional Yeast is rich in many basic nutrients such as the B vitamins, chromium, 16 amino acids, 14 or more minerals, and 17 vitamins (not including vitamins A, C,and E).

Yeast is also high in phosphorus 12. Nutirtional yeast should not be confused with Live bakers yeast which can deplete the body of B vitamins and other nutrients.

Nutritional yeast is an excellent high protein and high energy food!

Another great choice is Apple Cider vinegar added to their water or food. Start with just a tad, then as they get used to the new flavor, you can add a little more. You can also just add on top of their food.

Many vitamins, minerals and other nutrients and substances are available in Bragg ACV to improve the health of your dog. Bragg ACV can provide them with enzymes and important minerals, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, chlorine, phosphorus, iron, silicon and other trace minerals. The vitamins contained in Bragg ACV are bioflavonoids (vitamin P), beta-carotene (precursor to vitamin A), vitamin C, E, B1, B2, and B6. Tannins from the crushed cell walls of fresh apples as well as malic acid, tartaric acid, propionic acid, acetic acid and pectin (fiber) are also contained in Bragg ACV. Be sure to purchase Bragg, organic unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally fermented ACV for its medicinal features. Bragg ACV ranges in color from a light golden to orange. You’ll know you’ve found the right stuff if you see sediment, referred to as the “mother of vinegar” on the bottom of the bottle. Do NOT buy white distilled vinegar, as it has none of the beneficial elements listed above.

Pets and Oils     (start young, 12 wks if you can) 

NOTE: these are suggestions for some alternative treatments. None are meant to diagnose, and none have guarantees. They are however suggestions of what has worked for others.  Many are personal testimonies of worked for their own dogs, a couple i have used on my own dogs. They are merely a place to start if you are looking for something other than pricey and possibly unhealthy RX types drugs. In many cases the prescription is what you will need, so make your own judgement call.
