I've never used it myself, but I work at a dog boarding kennels and one of our customers used it for her labrador who had arthritis.

Sorry I cant be of more help, someone should be along who knows more soon x

We use it for general health and to keep the 'skitos away. A capful in their water dish ever time we use it. It is also helpful when fighting fungus!

To fight fungus how would you use it? As a dip?

ACV has a bunch of health benefits not only for dogs but for people too. It can be used both externally and internally for different things.

Externally you can use it as a 50/50 mix with water in a spray bottle and apply it that way or do a mix and bathe them in it. Internally it provides even more benefits, you can easily mix it into their food or water. I personally mix it into my dogs' food directly.

Just a sampling of the benefits of ACV (preferably you want ACV with the "mother" in it): it's antibacterial and anti fungal; it improves the immune system, liver, bladder and kidney function; helps with itchy skin and allergies; balances digestive enzymes; normalizes the pH of the body; repels both internal and external parasites like fleas and worms; provides potassium for tissue and joint health; ...the list could go on and on!

For fungus you could do a 50/50 mix of ACV and water, and it would be up to you if you prefer to use it in a spray bottle and spray it on the affected area or you could use it as a dip.

Hi. Many claim it has MANY health benifits to humans as
well as animals. I use it once in a while for Sir PeteyBoo.
You can put a capful in water, or mix in there food. I put
it in his food. You would never think they would like the
stuff but they seem to love it. LOL...
I use the ACV w/Mother in it from health food store.
Just google ACV for pets and should come up with alot
of info.

Two things I've come across over past few years that
many claim to be the "miracle cure all"... so to speak
and that is ACV and Ginger.
Blessings.

We use it for us and the dogs as well as Honey from our area. They say the benefits of local honey and ACV is wonderful. =)
