Wonder if that drink would be good for a dog also.

As long as it is mixed with the food or included in the water bowl, full strength Organic ACV is fine.

You "could" give honey but remember it is high in calories and can cause diarrhea in some dogs.

Manuka Honey has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
It is fantastic for wounds or infections and hot spots.
The UMF strength must be at least 10 to 15+ for this type of use.

Raw "Local" Honey (from a honey farm close to where you live) has had success for some dog's allergy condition's.
