I am a big advocate of natural remedies as much as possible and especially like the many health benefits and uses for Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Here is a formula that I use on Lord Snickel Fritz, (my 4 lb. Yorkie) who actually likes the cooling spritz, especially in the hot summer months.
I don’t like putting chemicals onto his tender skin, so I found a wonderful Natural Tick and Flea Repellant that is an alternative to the chemical ones on the market and seems to do the job. A very fine mist is advised. Because he is so small, only a very fine mist-spritz is agreeable to him. When we first started this treatment, I used a regular spray bottle; however, the spritz was too strong for his tender little body and he expressed that he did not care for that. So, I switched to a very fine spritz and he welcomes that. Sometimes we have to experiment what works best for our babies.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is very inexpensive and you can find it in most super markets. Be sure to use only the ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar, as the more processed kind is not good for dogs.
Try mixing a 1:1 Solution of water and ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar. Put the mixture into a spray bottle, shake, and spray your pooch once a week. If your dog doesn’t like being sprayed, you can use a soaked washcloth instead.
You can also add a teaspoon of Organic Apple Cider vinegar to the dog’s water twice a week for similar results.
