[QUOTE=evybear15;2735034]Now that's something I could get them to try! Would they apply the CO or ACV directly to the affected areas? I am assuming that this would be something they could safely do while continuing his current treatment, or something they'd want to try after?
yes...mix 50/50 of acv (should be raw organic like "braggs") and soak a clean (free of fabric softeners and dyes) cloth or put in spray bottle if will tolerate it...might sting, but it's a good sting that cools and then feels better...let dry and rub in the C.O. after - you want to get rid of any loose crusts first, so comb out. You can feed the CO too...1tsp/10 lbs. body weight and use in conjuction with a human grade fish oil (fish body oil has more EPA/DHA then salmon alone) 1-2000mg to start. re: CO - Nutiva good brand - mid price range, if looking for some are chemically pressed or heat treated - don't want that.
If giving the dog a bath or even soaking down - can do a whole body rinse after with 50/50 acv/water - don't rinse off
