Re: Apple Cider Vinegar on red, irritated paws?

I have been giving apple cider vinegar (I like Braggs) for a few years now. I've noticed a marked decrease in V's paw licking over the last two years. They get a teaspoon twice per day in their food...during allergy season, I double V's amount. A really good foot spray (at least for her) is a mixtur...

So, please don't take our comments as critical of what others are doing... Eggzactly! I really hope that people realize this. I hate for people to think that raw feeders think they are some kind of elitist group (well, there are some people that are, but I haven't seen many on this board) that is A...

I noticed that all of these kinds of threads wind up being testimonials of people whose dogs have done so well on raw. I DO realize that there are some dogs that do horrible on raw, just as there are dogs that do horrible on kibble. I think that you get people that have had success with their dogs o...

Beware...dogs (AND KIDS) love vaseline! You can put it on their pads, but they'll probably lick it all off. lol

I like Azmira products lol I think it's great that there is some research out there now. However, my dogs have been too darn healthy on raw for me to turn back now. My vet has to blow the dust off my file when I go 'cause he never sees us! And this is coming from someone that had a VERY sickly dog (...

I've used it in the past and honestly didn't see a huge difference, AND it's overpriced. There are supplements just as good, if not better, that are a cheaper (fish oil being the main one).

My dogs tend to have dark stool when they've eat a meal heavy in organs (not in a long time though because I've learned the amount they can tolerate).
Clears right up when they don't have it. I see what you're sayin' though :thumbsup:

Get used to Peter not calling you back. He has a good product, but is a HORRIBLE person to do business with.

Save it! I make treats with organs. Adding grain to them (if your dog can tolerate grain) is a good way for them to get them without having runs. Here's a favorite for my two...my dog reactive boy flips over them and won't even look at another dog if I have them! Liver treats: One pound of beef or c...

This is true, especially if the dog is getting whole chickens with organs every day. I didn't think of that.
