    I put it in my guys water, about a tablespoon per gallon. Start out slow, with a tiny bit and work up in amount and they'll get used to it. When I started adding it to the water, along with changing food to TOTW Pacific Stream Zelda's allergy and yeast issues went away. This was a 4 year old bulldog who had constant problems from 5 months of age on. She had been a walking vet bill until then. After that, only really bad seasonal ones got her bad enough for a vet trip. The other 3 dogs I've had since then (almost 4 years ago) and now Zamboni as well have never had problem one health wise (knock on wood). It's too soon to tell with Zam but I'm not changing my ways unless he shows some problems with the food. His breeder feeds the same so it's the only food he's ever known and his mother and older siblings from another breeding of the same 2 dogs are all fine on it.

    Actually, you can use any kind of vinegar although ACV as described above has the extra value of the nutrients found in the apples. If you're going for yeast control, your goal is to change the dog's ph balance just enough to kill the yeasty beasties and any vinegar is acidic enough to do that. If they balk at finding the "mother " particles in their water, try some without it first and work into what you want them to get.

    I fyou specifically want organic, with mother, any health / natural food store should have it or be able to get it easily. It' SOP in that market and has always been

    I have used this for my dogs for years but I use this as a rinse after shampooing. People that have had dogs with skin problems that I have told to do this look at me like I am crazy but just after one use they think I am a genius. Clears hot spots and yeast rashes in days.

    ive started using this in my dogs water just a teaspoon to start and i can see a difference in sarah. she seems more stable with her allergies and yeast. less tears and eye boogers and just everything so i will keep using it and upping the dose. they dont mind it in the water. might try the rinse to for her.

    Hey I tried the rinse today after his bath.....awesome!! He doesnt have any skin issues but hopefully it will possibly prevent them. I noticed right away how good he smells even before he is dry! No wet dog smell.

    I'm so glad this thread made a comeback! The rep from the rescue told me that he read that the ACV may help with our (future) foster's UTI issues. Definitely going to try!
