The "raw organic apple cider vinegar" may be a bit strong and the dogs may not like it. I personally could not stand the taste.

I would start by washing water bowls with soapy water a couple of times a day until you can get this under control, or see if they will drink from separate bowls.


Terry you don't use the whole bottle. A cap full in two cups of water.

Really Joe? I am not an idiot, just unbelievably sick of you constantly telling us in every thread to "feed raw," "use raw organic apple cider vinegar" or "use coconut oil!" You were correct that we are tired of you repeating the same things over and over, yet you do not stop! :bang :bang

So glad you are finding answers and on the road to recovery, Michelle.

And Joe - raw is great, I am sure, but every dog is different. Like my Cici, Buddy was not raised by Michelle as a puppy. It's a learning process. I tried it with Cici and it didn't completely work for her. Like people, what suits one dog may not suit another.

If it is any help at all, Michelle, there are some rabbit foods with limited ingredients in case you find it helpful.

The old saying is or was an apple a day will keep a doctor away. If one can't handle OACV taste in water, as a person one can put it in their hot tea, add a little farmer's market local non pasteurized honey in your tea to sweeten it up for your taste.

We were talking about a dogs health here not your taste. Sorry. Passing allergies to dog to dog.

Find what your dogs limit is then. As I said before with Oliver's CUSHINGS there is the stone making problem in the URINARY track. It was fixed in two weeks retested cured. I have the test to prove it.

Only way to know is to trial and error testing.

"3 Simple Ways Apple Cider Vinegar Can Help Your Dog"

According to Donna Starita Mehan, DVM, in The Veterinarians’ Guide to Natural Remedies for Dogs by Martin Zucker, yeast does not do well in the acid environment ACV creates, so she suggests feeding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon twice daily.

Me I would just add some OACV to their water making it a more acid environment. You don't have to wash bowls every time they drink. If you have lots of time one wash their dog water bowls after they drink do it then.

Like one of the main ingredients in the Zim ear cleaner is APPLE CIDER VINEGAR making it a more acid environment. ENOUGH SAID.
