You will want to use distilled or purified water to mix with the ACV if your water supply is treated in any way (fluoride/water softener etc).
My vet recommends the 50/50 mix as Magwart suggested.

I do. A vet told me to do a 1:1 mix with water -- I've also read recommendations for 1 part vinegar:2 parts water. I use Bragg's organic ACV and store it in the fridge, so I use warm water when I mix the solution, so that it's not cold in the ear.
I dip a gauze square in the solution and then gently clean. The 2x2 gauze squares in the first-aid aisle are very inexpensive and are just the right size for ear cleaning. They're soft too. That was another vet suggestion (better than a paper towel or cotton).

Does anyone use apple cider vinegar to clean their dogs ears? If so how much water do you add to it to dilute it? I just want to use it to wipe out Gunners ears.
