Southern Charm Miniature Aussies


Dear Puppy Buyer,

Due to the varying kinds of dog food on the market and the different environmental conditions the dogs encounter, Southern Charm Miniature Aussies WILL NOT guarantee the dog unless they are given NuVet Plus tablets at the manufacturer’s suggested dose of one (1) tablet daily. Failure to do so for your puppy’s life makes this breeder’s contract null and void. If your puppy is sold WITH breeding rights and the recommended daily dose is not followed for the years your puppy is of breeding age, the contract is also null and void and you will no longer have any breeding rights with your puppy/dog. Your health guarantee against genetic defects will continue to be in effect if said puppy is kept on a FIVE STAR dog food.
I, as a breeder and customer of NuVet believe in this product and its beneficial effects with all my heart. I have witnessed firsthand the wonderful results it has on my puppies and breeding dogs.
More than a million dogs and cats are using NuVet to protect against most ailments (from back yard pesticides, pet food allergies and hormones, toxic formaldehyde in furniture and carpeting, ailments transmitted from dog parks and the vet’s office, etc.) while receiving the benefits of maintaining a beautiful skin and coat.
This is not just a vitamin! It’s an immune system builder with a precise balance of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, amino acids and high-potency antioxidants. That’s why it works so well through all three stages of a dog’s life.
 For Younger Dogs (under 2 years old). It strengthens their immune system, while building and strengthening the cardiovascular, skeletal, and nervous systems.
 For Dogs in Their Prime (ages 2-8). It improves the luster of their skin and coat while protecting against allergies, skin and coat problems, staining from tears, digestive problems, etc.
 For Older Dogs (over 8 years old). It helps reduce and eliminate arthritis, tumors, premature aging, cataracts, heart conditions, diabetes and many types of cancer, while extending the life and improving the vitality of most dogs.
NuVet Plus will keep your pet on the path to perfect health! It is not available in stores, and is only available to the general public with an order code from an authorized pet or breeder professional.
For your convenience, you may order directly from the manufacturer (at up to 50% off what most veterinarians charge) by calling 1-800-474-7044 and using Order Code: 42169, or by ordering online at By using auto ship, which I do then I don’t have to worry about running out, you can also save an additional 15%.

Thank you so much for your business and we are so glad to have you as one of our “Wiggle-Butt Family” members!!
