I've been reading about apple cider vinegar here for my dog who has very bad arthritis, all kinds of allergies and prone to yeast infection. She has been on weekly allergy shots (allergen, NOT steroid) and various medications for her allergy and yeast infection. For arthritis, I've been giving her glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM, vitamin C and fish oil, and very rarely adequan shot when she can't walk. She has only one front leg and that leg has arthritis, and it gets pounded a lot.
I started giving her ACV, 1 tablespoon mixed with her food (raw diet) once a day. But now I'm a little confused. Is ACV good or bad for yeast infection? I was going to make a 50% ACV and 50% water solution and spray on her to give her relief from the itch, but many people are saying ACV feeds yeast and some people are saying it cures yeast infection? Can anybody clarify this? Also, if it is bad for yeast infection, should I also stop giving her ACV orally?
I appreciate your help in advance. Thanks.
