Using Apple Cider Vinegar on your pet's Hot spots ;
Using Apple Cider Vinegar for Flea control ;
Apple Cider Vinegar for Cat/ Dog Ear infections ;
Apple Cinder Vinegar. It has many benefits, including healing ( assisting the healing process) skin problems and hot spots. The raw, unpasteurized ACV, such as the Bragg brand, helps relieve the actual itching and scratching.. Reduces inflammation and aides in healing ; spend a few cents more and buy the Raw , unfiltered brand of ACV
( MY ADVICE is not to take the Place of a licensed Vet; Please seek out your local vet for any chronic ongoing issues )
Simply take a Flat cotton pad or cotton ball and dab some apple cider vinegar onto the irritated skin. Your dog may not be a fan of the smell, but no worries, it will quickly fade.
Apple Cinder Vinegar - Don't use anything less than this brand ; unpasteurized ACV
Hot spots go away !!!
Works on Fleas too !
this is a Way to AVOID the commercial chemical-laden treatments ..
Before treating your pet with ACV, do your best to remove as many of the buggers as you can. You can pick them out or use a flea comb, which will also help remove some of the eggs.
As a rinse, shampoo your dog as you normally would, and rinse thoroughly. Then rinse your pet’s coat thoroughly with ACV and massage. Fleas do not like the odor or taste of the vinegar, so they should bail out or rinse off when you next rinse off the ACV.
As an added bonus, the ACV will likely improve your dog’s skin and coat. It can help with dry skin and increase the shine in your pet’s coat. It can also help with odor.
As a spray, you can use an ACV mixture for flea prevention and control. You can make a simple mixture with one part ACV to two parts vinegar.
Another commonly used recipe is as follows: • 8 oz of Apple Cider Vinegar • 4 oz of warm water • 1/2 teaspoon of salt • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda Mix the salt and baking soda together, then add the mixture to the water and ACV mix in a spray bottle
EAR INFECTIONS Use an ear syringe (found at drug stores) to squirt a vinegar solution into the ear and let it sit for a minute or so, then turn your head and let the liquid drain out.
Solution Mix : The vinegar solution can be a 50/50 mixture of ACV and pure water, a 50/50 mixture of ACV and rubbing alcohol or a solution consisting of one-third vinegar, one-third pure water, and one-third rubbing alcohol.
ONLY use a few drops each ear of Dog or Cat If the ear problem persists, see your Vet professional.
My Advice is not to take the place of your Licensed Vet.

~~~ 3 things you need for Wrinkle Stains or tear stains
Pads Remove tear stains without pharmaceutical antibiotics. | 50 tMy English Bulldog Chelsey has had a problem with dry eyes and tear stains. Chelsey is fed a wonderful grain free food called Zignature Brand. The tear stains were a chronic problem through her life before I adopted her. We are dealing with years of poor diet and and neglected eye care.
We now use this Natural product 1 time per day are experiencing slow and steady results on her tear stains; She is taking a Supplement, using special eye cleaning pads and on an excellent food. She does suffer from dry eye and uses drops from our Vet. The eye pads also helps to reduce redness and itching around the eye.
Tear Stain Causes
Physical characteristics, such as long hair on the muzzle or around the eyes, deep facial wrinkles, blocked tear ducts or bulging eyes can cause tear stains. Biological causes of red tear stains include red yeast, various eye and ear infections and pH imbalance. Red tear stains can also be caused by environmental factors, such as plastic food or water bowls and minerals in the water your dog drinks.
This can be used with anything that your vet is also using.
Contain no pharmaceuticals or chemicals Gentle, tearless formula Safe for even the youngest puppy Alcohol Free Nothing to mix The reason tear stains are so hard to eradicate is that they are a visible symptom of a deeper systemic problem. The most common cause of the redness is yeast infection (epiphora) which in turn is produced by bacteria. That's why, if you want to get rid of tear stains, it's not enough to simply wipe the eyes with a cleansing product, you also need to supress and destroy the bacteria that are causing the problem. Eye wipes are unique because they are infused with colloidal silver, an antibacterial nano-particle that is highly effective at killing the offending bacteria while leaving beneficial flora and fauna intact. Remove tear stains without pharmaceutical antibiotics. | 50 towelettes These eye pads can be found at Amazon.com and some grooming supply stores
Keep in mind the biggest filter organ in the body is the skin so when these toxins leak out of the contained system and into the bloodstream, they eventually make their way to the outer layer, the skin, and deposit the toxins on the surface of the skin causing itching, irritation, odor and then a secondary bacterial infections become a problem as well. Reoccurring ear infections are often treated with antibiotic, which don't even touch yeast infections of the ears, and in fact make it worse as it destroys the beneficial bacteria of the ear canal, altering the pH of the ear and making it comfy for yeast to want to grow there.
