I use white vinegar on both my dogs and in my home, it is a natural Febreeze, my dogs do not smell like dogs. No odour at all. I bathe my little one in Water and vinegar for any bugs or cuts that might be on her and within 24 hours all problems are solved. ACV works well too but the odour is a little overwhelming.
Depending on the breed my friends dog had crystalized urine also because of all the medication. She did change her dogs diet to raw even though it was hard for her. Her dog ended up doing well with alternative methods. I mention this because apple cider vinegar also works for people.
2 teaspoons in a glass of water. It also kills any kind of worms that a person or pet can have. It should actually be 2 tsps either in their water or food. Once a day. Or every other day. You would need to change your dogs diet.
I think maybe you should read up on what your dog is really eating. There was a veterinary school who actually followed Purina and several other big dog companies and found that they were taking dead dogs and cats out of dumpsters (some that died of cancer or other illnesses) and they grind this into your dogs food.
Your dog is eating sickness and not good food. It even made news here in NJ. Be careful what you feed your dog. Apple cider will help with change of diet. If you can't do raw do an organic or kibble like evo or Abdy which are the better foods out there.
I had heard of and began to utilize the benefits of old school uses with hydrogen peroxide. However, we always use Frontline for our critters. Never had I considered something as simple as ACV for treatment.
Flees and insects thrive in our hot/humid climate as well as allergies. In SC you can treat your pets but they always pick up insects from the outdoors and Frontline is/has been the only effective solution. Unfortunately and to my understanding the insect must get on your pet in order to kill it, thus ending life cycles. Plus if the neighbor does not effectively treat, the problem still surrounds your pet.
After making a comment to a friend about how bad flees seemed this year she said "ACV. " ……Seriously?!
Within a week of occasional use by 50/50 spray on the pets I have seen no indication of flees or itchiness. Makes perfect sense to deter flees from the animal altogether. Right?Our critters may not like the smell or taste but it is a small price "literally" to pay. Once again, thank you Old School!
I give her 1/4 cup of ORGANIC plain yogurt and when i bathe her I use doggie shampoo and then rinse her with 1/4 ACV-3/4 warm water, I sponge it on to her face and let her air dry.....Every day since then the 1st thing she does when she wakes up is scratch so I spray her with a mix of 1/2 ACV 1/2 water and she is fine, then before bed I spray her again and she is fine...I am also just feeding her kibbles and bits original food. She smells like vinegar REALLY bad but its a small price to pay for her happiness!!
I have to tell you that I am in SHOCK!!!! ACV works!!!! It really works!!!! My poor Zoey is 3 and has been scratching and licking and biting her feet for almost 3 yrs...she has been on EVERY pill there is...every topical there is....has had every test...i have spent THOUSANDS at the vet...tried raw food...NOTHING and i mean NOTHING has worked untill now....i did it last night and omg!!! she is FINE!!!! I cannot beleive what i am seeing!!!! THANK YOU ACV!!!!

EC: Hi Courtney, can you please send us more info re: your dosage and recipe? Thanks!
After reading about Apple Cider Vinegar as a remedy on your site, I started given it to my Boxer, Peaches, who has had recurring allergies and skin rashes...I noticed a marked improvement in less than a week... I also give it to the Lab, Sadie, just because, and her coat has improved tremendously and she doesn't shed nearly as bad.. I have recommended ACV to many people and 99% have been helped... Thanks so much for posting this info.
I used acv after reading about it on the website and my doggie who was suffering from terrible skin problems, started looking so good, her hair was growing , there was no more scratching. She is looking great. All the medications never brought her to full recovery but acv is just great and has done so much good for my doggie.Thank you so much.
