      Apple Cider Vinegar

      Any ideas on how i can get my lab Ollie to eat apple cider vinegar? (braggs, with the mother in it)
      I have heard of the wonderful health benefits a tblsn a day can provide.
      He does not like the taste and putting on his food is challenging (raw feed, he just kinda slides it off).
      i tried freezing and making small ice cubes but he spit them out.
      Putting in his drinking water will not work either.
      Any ideas will be appreciated.

      I pour a table spoon over the veggie mix I cook for him. He eats the veggies, so he eats the vinegar with it.

      I also give him vinegar baths, I mix apple cider vinegar with water, soak a towel in it, and wipe him.

      Every time I've tried to do vinegar with any dog, they bring it back up. Haven't tried it in a few years.

      Here's an article from The Whole Dog Journal. Most of the uses are topical and the reported benefits to ingestion seem to be anecdotal.

      Any good results from the olive oil? I currently feed virgin coconut oil a tblsn or so a day, thinking of rotating with olive and fish oil

      That is a great idea with the wiping! Jessie has yeast problems that cause her to itch & her muzzle area is really tough to bathe in her special shampoo. So Bragg's a/c vinegar on a wipe is a really good idea! Thanks for that!
