9. Cleans Tear Stains
Tear stains can take away the beauty from your pet’s face. You can use apple cider vinegar to get rid of the ugly stains.
The acetic acid in it controls the growth of bacteria or yeast in your dog’s system, which can otherwise cause eye infections and excess tearing.
- Mix apple cider vinegar and water in equal amounts.
- Dip a cotton ball in it and use it to clean the stained area around your dog’s eyes. Be careful not to allow the solution to get into your pet’s eyes.
- Repeat as needed.
10. Maintains a Proper pH Level
It is imperative to maintain a proper pH level in your furry companion’s body. Apple cider vinegar can help balance your dog’s pH level, especially if your dog’s system is too alkaline.
With apple cider vinegar, it is possible to balance the pH level of the fluids in the body, including blood and urine.
All you need to do is add apple cider vinegar to your dog’s drinking water. The dosage is based on your dog’s weight.
- 1 teaspoon for dogs up to 14 pounds.
- 2 teaspoons for dogs between 15 and 34 pounds.
- 1 tablespoon for dogs between 35 and 85 pounds.
- Do not give apple cider vinegar to your dog if your dog doesn’t like it or if it doesn’t suit your dog.
- Do not apply undiluted apple cider vinegar on your dog’s body, as it can sting.
- Be careful to avoid spraying an apple cider vinegar solution into your pet’s eyes, ears and nose.
- Do not use an apple cider vinegar solution on an open wound. It can sting if the wound is raw.
