This is fantastic to hear! I am so happy for you both!
The 50% ACV and 50% water can also be used as a rinse after a bath! You can even make it a little stronger as long as there isn't any broken skin (it would burn).
Apply in small areas working down into fur/skin, until the whole dog is covered.
Don't rinse....let them "drip dry"!

I just bought the White House brand....does it matter. Silas was diagnosed with puppy pyroderma, bless his heart and has been itching. He had a few pimple looking spots that have for the most part clear up now but he still itches. So figured I would try the ACV. Put a teaspoon in their water yesterday and today and mixed 1/2 teaspoon in with his breakfast this morning. Did you use honey for any particular reason?
If we can get through the soft stool and itching i think he will be well on his way.
He is on antibiotic paired with a shampoo. He has been on this treatment for about a week or a little less.
His activity level is high and keeps me on my toes so the itching is not effecting his demeanor one bit....LOL!

|DHau||It's good to hear actual results from fellow members. My dog is dealing with extreme allergies this year. I have been giving it to her as well in her water and wiping areas in which she scratches. Only time will tell how this will work out.|

you can actually use ACV daily in their drinking water..I mix 2-3 T in a gallon of water, my chickens get it every day and so do my dogs
Some say it works, others dont,,I like to think it is the ACV keeping them healthy

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) rave!
Rumi started itching/scratching somewhat aggressively this summer. She didnít develop hot spots, lose her fur or chewed/scratched herself raw. But every minute she was chewing/scratching on herself somewhere. The areas she chewed on were random. She chewed and scratched practically everywhere on her body. Since there had been no dietary changes, I attributed it to summertime insects as I was also scratching and welting up from bug bites. But now as weíre into fall, Iíve stopped itching and Rumi hasnít. Iíd been giving her Benadryl yet she continued to scratch. Iíd known about ACV for sometime and finally decided to give it a try. Bought the Braggís brand yesterday afternoon. Fed her about a Ĺ tablespoon mixed with honey and peanut butter as soon as I got home, then forgot about it. About an hour or so later I notice that Rumi hasnít been scratching. Hmmm, could it be the ACV??? This morning before breakfast she was back to scratching. Gave her about Ĺ tablespoon mixed in with her breakfast, with no Benadryl, and again sheís scratch-free! I canít believe it. Itís a miracle before my very eyes. Iím going to mix up a 50/50 spray for her coat and add that to the routine too. I realize ACV may not help every dogís itchy skin condition. But I wanted to share my success story in hopes that others will give it a try if they havenít already.
