Where to visit next…. and Apple Cider Vinegar!

Seeing as we started at the top of the Food Chain (literally) with the Answers Pet Food  facility and farm tour I don’t know where to go now…..

But, while I ponder that question to myself, here are some GREAT uses for Apple Cider Vinegar!!

*Use apple cider vinegar rinse for itchy dogs to soothe the skin.  Mix 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar per 1 pint of water for your dog after you bathe them.

*Apple Cider Vinegar contains several acids with powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, making it excellent for clearing up ear infections.  To use, make a 5 ml solution of a 50:50 ratio of water to Apple Cider Vinegar. Apply the solution to your dog’s ears and wipe the inside of their ear with a cotton ball. Do this daily for a week.

*Improve digestion, clean teeth, combat fungal infections and boost immunity by adding Apple Cider Vinegar to your pets drinking water.  (See below for amounts)

*Eliminate Odors.  Following up a bath with an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse, is a great way to break down and get rid of strong odors (like skunk odor) embedded in your dog’s coat. Simply mix 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar per 1 pint of water and pour over your dog after bathing.

*Apple Cider Vinegar can be used both topically and internally to help treat many issues.   For internal use, the standard recommended dosage of apple cider vinegar for dogs is:

  • 1 tsp for small dogs (up to 14 lb)
  • 2 tsp for medium-sized dogs (15 to 34 lb)
  • 1 tbsp for large dogs (35 to 84 lb)

*The easiest way to give Apple Cider Vinegar to your dog is to combine it with their food or water daily, or you can make an apple cider vinegar rinse for itchy dogs.  When you decide to purchase Apple Cider Vinegar, make sure you reach for a brand that is “raw, unpasteurized” or “with the mother.” This ensures the Apple Cider Vinegar still contains all of its beneficial enzymes and acids.
