apple cider vinegar

Ok I've tried the soft cones and its not working to stop the licking so I'm going in a different direction. I've discovered Tasha likes Apple Cider Vinegar. (cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil was a bust) I've put a little bit on her food at meals for the last couple of days and it seems like her licking has calmed down a lot. My question is how much should I be giving her. I've seen everything from half a teaspoon to a cap full. I feed her twice a day. She is probably just under 80 lbs.

I put a cap full in my dogs water bowls daily. They don't seem to notice.

I put about a quarter to half cup in with the water--it's a pretty big bowl.

• Up to 25# = ˝ teaspoon per day
• 25# - 50# = 1 teaspoon per day
• 50# -75# = 2 teaspoons per day
• 75# 100# = 1 Tablespoon per day.


If the dog doesn’t seem to like it, mix the Organic ACV with a Tablespoon or two of low fat/no salt meat broth, then drizzle over food.

For a dog, is there any concern with everyday use between the full strength acidity when put in the food and the esophagus? For everyday human use, I read that it should be diluted so I make a lemony, Manuka honey and cinnamon drink for me. It has been an amazing energy booster for me. Wonder if that drink would be good for a dog also.

@shepherdmom

Make sure it is the Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
This has "the Mother" floating around in the bottle which holds the medicinal properties.

One of the most popular brands is Bragg's.
