My wonderful guest family pointed out a huge lump on Tiko’s neck. What the heck! It was as big, bigger than a golf ball, almost a baseball! The vet said he wasn’t in Vilca office that day, but to put Sangre de Drago – the juice of the Dragon’s Blood on it to bring down the swelling and cure the infection. German Shepherds get a lot of under-the-skin infections, supposedly, Then, to measure it and if it hasn’t gone down in three days, bring him in and they’d test the lump for cancer. Yikes, scary! Well, I did Reiki and got the Sangre de Drago from the pharmacy – $2 and it went at least halfway down by the next morning, whew! From 6cm. to 3 cm. But today it was big as ever, so the doc gave him anti-inflammatories, 3 days of antibiotics (He has a small fever) and he comes back Wed. again to get another shot. The bump, whether from another animal, insect or whatever, has to be drained.

1 c. Oats or rice
1 large egg
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. grated carrots

Combine the milk and breadcrumbs: Pour the milk or water over the oats in a small bowl and set aside to absorb. Then stir in the other ingredients.
Use your hands to thoroughly mix the egg into the ground meat.
Form the meat into 1 1/2-inch meatballs:. Arrange the meatballs spaced slightly apart on a baking sheet. Cook under the broiler for 20 to 25 minutes or bake at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes.
