Apple Cider Vinegar: A Natural Remedy for Dogs

During your dog’s life, you are likely to run into problems such as itchy skin, fleas and ticks, ear infections, or digestive distress.  These ailments are common among pets, but are also preventable.  One common remedy and preventative is raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (ACV), which can be purchased at any health food store.  The recommended uses of ACV for dogs are discussed below. Skin Allergies Dogs can develop skin irritation from any number of common allergens, including grass, pollen, dust, and even their food.  Unlike humans, dogs do not display allergic reactions in localized areas, rather, their entire bodies will become itchy and irritated.  ACV can help soothe irritation when applied directly to the skin and coat.  Simply dilute 1 part ACV with 1 part water, and combine in a spray bottle.  Spray your pet (avoiding broken skin) for fast-acting relief. Fleas and Ticks Not all dogs can...

Can I Feed Bones To My Dog?

Dogs and bones seemingly go together like peanut butter and jelly; but, are bones really a healthy snack for our dogs?  A growing number of veterinarians are warning pet owners to avoid giving their pets bones as treats due to the potentially harmful implications they have for sensitive digestive tracts.  Listed below are the many types of bones available to dogs and whether or not they are safe.
