    Default Apple Cider Vinegar question

    I've been reading up on ACV, one Vet was saying that it is better for the dogs to put on food, less pickiness as opposed to the water, however I use coconut oil on the morning feeding and a spoonful of yogurt for the dinner feeding. My question is should I do the ACV in the water or would it be to much to put on his food on top of the yogurt and or coconut oil? Thanks

    I use coconut for breakfast
    Yogurt/pumpkin for lunch
    And green beans on dinner

    I use a tablespoon of braggs vinegar in his water daily.
    I mean I would try it in the water first and see how it works, my little guy isn't picky about it.
    I think he actually prefers the taste.
    And with how big his bowls are, it mellows it out for sure, I think on the food they would get that sour yucky taste of the straight vinegar.

    Hi, you can add it to the water, but unless he drinks all of his water, which they usually don't, he won't be getting all of the vinegar. I add 2 Tbsp's of yogurt to their morning kibble, and they get their fruit as a mid morning snack, usually a half banana each, or strawberries, or blueberries. I add Coconut Oil and the ACV to the evening kibble. Don't add the ACV together with the vinegar because it will cause the yogurt to sour and curdle.

    I add the ACV to Monty's food in the morning. He doesn't care what it tastes like as long as he gets his food! He has never turned his nose up at anything, bless him!

    Hi, @bcarro45 you can put the ACV over the food and give the coconut oil or yogurt separately…Dr. Alicia McWatters, Phd.D., C.N.C. recommends adding it to food rather than water because she prefers the water to be additive free. I add to water and I've noticed it seems to help w/the redness under the chin that can sometimes happen and keep the bowl not as grimy (that's just been my perception). Just be sure to use the "mother" ACV

    Both my babies have Lix-it bottles on the crates. I put the ACV in the bottles when I clean and fill them daily. They each drink about half a bottle a day. It also eliminates dripping mess from drinking out of the bowl.
