    Default Administer Apple Cidar Vinegar-Any Suggestions?

    Hi Guys, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my Roxy who is such a fussy/picky eater to take apple cidar vinegar? It's for early symptoms of a Urinery tract infection.
    I have to give her 1 tablespoon 3 times daily. It's foul stuff and i'm worried she is going to throw it straight up if i syring it straight down her throat.

    Has anyone had the same problem and how did u work around it?

    Cheers!

    I give my girls a capful every morning in their breakfast as a flea treatment. Just mix it in the dog's food/water. It's vile tasting stuff if drunk "neat".

    I've started to add a splosh into my dogs water bowls, they are coming around to it lol.

    As much as I hate tinned food, I'd add the ACV into a little bit of that to get her to eat it.

    You are using the ACV with "mother" in it? It should be cloudy.

    Not sure what you mean by "mother".

    "Mother" refers to when it has not been pasteurised or filtered, which means it retains the essential "mother of vinegar". The ACV you get in the supermarket is clear, so a lot of the goodness has been removed. I was put on to it for the horses intially, so I get mine from the stock feed store ($23 for 5 litres), it's much more concentrated so you don't need to use as much, but it's cloudy so doesn't look so appealing.

    I'll look up in my book that explains it better tomorrow lol.

    As much as she isn't going to like it you could always syringe it down her throat.

    I have a poodle here who needs liquid medication twice daily and that is every day, not just until an infection goes away.
    It tastes ruddy awful so there is no way she will take it with food.
    A quick squirt and a biscuit later and her medication for the day is done.

    I mix a tablespoon of it through Troopa's dinner a few times each week. He still scoffs it just the same

    I've never heard of "Mother" but will have a look at the health food shop today.
    I tried squirting it down her throat but as i knew she would-she threw it up 1min later all over the rug. I think if it was only a couple of ml it wouldnt be so bad but 20ml is quiet a bit.
    Hopefully the "Mother" Vinegar is more concentrated and i wont have to give her so much.
    Also on the website that i learnt about giving ACV for UTI's it says to give it with natural yohgurt but i'm not sure wether thats just to make it more appealing for the dog or wether it plays a part in fighting the UTI-i cant find anything on the net.
    Either way i have no hope of roxy eating natural yohgurt!
