    bydee, your dodg is adorable.I have used Apple Cider Vinigar for years in my two dogs drinking water{ one, my mini-dachshund is no longer with us) I never had problems with fleas, mosquitos. It is the best  and healtiest natural remedy.

    TYou for your advice,I just LOVE this site and the people are so lovely/caring too:)))

    Welcome to this site. There many of us who have and love animals.You can always count on getting good advice. I always use "Braggs Natural Apple Cider Vinegar", But any ACV will do. My mini-dachshund had kidney failure and we had to put him to sleep on 12/1/11. We miss him tewrrible. Thanks for asking.

    Thank You VERY much Ann,this will give *SOUL* a much more comfy life:))
    FANTASTIC just Perfect

    Puppy Yes he is cute Thank You:)))He was born on the 11/11/2011.......his name is SOUL,he is a ""Smithfield Blue Cattle""great dogs for protection and working on the Farm......I just added the Ac Vinegar to his water and he loves it:)))Perfect!!!


    Cider Vinegar in the home. It is commonly used by dog, cat and horse owners to name just a few.

    1. ACV contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes important for keeping animals healthy.

    2. ACV neutralizes the acid in dogs and cats. Adding apple cider vinegar to their food will help keep those brown tear stains from forming under their eyes and eliminate the brown patches on your lawn by balancing your pet’s pH.

    3. A solution of half water and half ACV added to the skin after a bath will get rid of fleas. Let the fur air dry and, to be sure the fleas don’t return, add a table spoon of ACV to their drinking water. (4 to 5 cups of water) Adjust the amount of vinegar for small animals.

    4. For itchy skin, use a solution of half water and half ACV, as well as adding it to their drinking water.

    5. For Ringworm, sponge the affected areas twice a day with one third water and two thirds ACV.

    6. You can ease the pain of arthritis and stop hot spots by adding ACV to your pet’s drinking water.

    7. Spray your barn with Apple Cider Vinegar to keep flies away. Also, spray on farm animals to keep flies, and other pests away.

    8. A bit of vinegar in their food or drinking water will keep kidney stones from forming, especially in cats.

    9. Spray ACV onto horses hooves to help dry up thrush.

    10. Spray your pet’s bed and bedding with ACV every few days to keep fleas from moving in and to keep it smelling nice. 


    wow TYou so much,I had heard ACV is good but gee look at all the things its good for....I will never need to by flea shampoos,colars etc again:)))AMAZING....Soul will be a very happy chappy now
