    I have 2 medium sized dogs 45-53lbs and a cat that’s at least 8lbs I’m guessing. They all share a bowl of water. How should I add the vinegar?

  • Jennifer says:

    How long does it take to go into affect for fleas to stop bothering the animals?

  • Rachael Pelphrey says:

    I have a 90 lbs female pitbull that likes to drink from the toilet, her inside water bowl, the water hose, and from just about any depth of water sitting on top of the ground. When she drinks, she laps up water for a solid 2-3 minutes or longer. How much apple cider vinegar and how often would you recommend treating her inside water bowl? Would adding some to her bath water rid her of her current infestation until it kicks in internally? What about home and yard treatment?

    • White House Foods says:

      Hi there,

      We recommend starting with 1-2 tablespoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Taking a bath in ACV could help but use a ratio of 1 cup to 8oz.

      For the yard, we recommend using White Distilled Vinegar and be careful around plants, bushes and flowers.
