Just wanted to say thanks to the good people and information of this Forum, Sasha's tearing has reduced tremendously with some Apple Cider Vinegar. She used to tear a lot, especially when she's playing and gets excited. Her face would get streaks of tear stains and they would smell a little funky Rolling Eyes I've been adding a bit of ACV into her water bowl for more than a week now and the tears have reduced to a minimum. Sometimes she doesnt tear at all, her face looks dry most of the time so THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Very Happy

How old does a puppy have to be before he/she can start drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it? Gigi is almost 12 weeks. Is that too soon? How much vinegar to water ratio?

If I remember right it is about a tablespoon to a gallon of water. And she is plenty old enough to start.

I had to dilute it more the first few times I gave it to her...she didn't like the smell of the vinegar, took a lick and refused to drink any of it. Now she's kinda used to it and tolerates it more.

Okay, I think I'll start with a teaspoon per gallon and see if she likes that.

I gotta try that trick. Our tearing problem is back in spades.

Ohh what did you do before to stop it and any idea why it came back? I must say the ACV did wonders, most of the time she just has the dry gunk which all I need to do is use a moustache comb to comb it out.

I've been doing this for about 3 days now. Gigi actually likes it, as do all 3 of my cats, so I'm constantly filling up the water bowl. Laughing

How long should it take before I see some results?
