    ACV actually helps prevent and reduce acidosis. I could explain how but it's all chemistry and it makes my head hurt. It has something to do with the potassium to acid ratio and how the combination alters the body's ph levels. When Abby was first diagnosed this was on the list of the concerns that her IMS brought to my attention, I spent DAYS trying to understand it and all I came out of the experience was "it's good stuff"

    1 tablespoon twice a day in water will do wonders.
    Thank you so much Twice....
    do you think adding to food would be ok? They share a water bowl and I refill it a thousand times a day, would be easier to manage dosage if I put it on their food (hopefully this will disguise smell as well!)

    I put a tsp of it into Abby's food AND add a tablespoon to the water bowl a couple times a day. I have 4 dogs here now so I have given up on trying to measure who gets how much. The way I figure it, if Abby gets a little extra it won't hurt her at all and if my healthy dogs don't get enough it won't kill them either.

    For me, her name was Abby

    @Momma2Bullies I put it in Bacon's food last night and he loved it, it also helped mask the smell of the salmon oil

    Thank you!
    And @Twice - I picked some up today!! "Bragg" brand, I finally found it at a store here. $7 for 32oz (not bad for my area).

    Update: omg they hated it!!! They kept looking at me like " mom....something is wrong with my dinner..."
    I told them it is good for them...I hope they get used to it LOL!

    Start with a smaller dose and work up to the tablespoon.

    I use ACV on my hair. It makes it really soft. So, Monty gets the same treatment!

    What about just wiping with a washcloth soaked in the stuff?

    Your information is really help me a lot. I had bought a bottle of ACV today, and my 14-week boy loved it. I am wondering could I add one tsp in his food every dinner?
