Did you know that you can use Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) to clean your dog's ears??

Our resident golden retreiver ears are really prone to yeast ear infection and I used to clean his ears with chemical ear cleaner from pet shop but the infection keeps coming back.
We've been hearing so many wonderful stories about how good Apple Cider Vinegar is! So one day I decided to give dilution of Apple Cider Vinegar a try. So I started researching about how to use Apple Cider Vinegar as dog's ear cleaner. 

Apple cider vinegar to clean your dog's ears

So this is how we normally makes the dilution:

  • 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 cup of water

And the result? Obi's ears couldn't looked much better and the infection is gone.

He also prefer sthe smell of apple cider vinegar. He used to run away everytime I tried to clean his ear with the chemical cleaner. Now whenever I prepares apple cider vinegar dilution, he instantly know it is "ear cleaning time" and he lays down in front of me without being asked.

It will also helps to repel fleas. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
