Serving size: 2 cups

2 cups filtered still water
¼ cantaloupe melon, medium, organic
8 peppermint leaves, organic
¼ cucumber, organic

2. Peel and cube the cantaloupe melon.
3. Wash the peppermint leaves.
4. Peel and cube the cucumber.

Health benefits:

Cantaloupe melon possesses anti-inflammatory qualities for dogs and is loaded with minerals and vitamins.
