Have you heard of the benefits that humans reap from the apple cider vinegar, but you have considered its uses for dogs?
Apple cider vinegar or ACV, is ideal for the health of dogs.
Apple cider vinegar begins life as apple juice or sweet cider. Then the fermentation of yeast and natural sugars occurs, creating an alcoholic or «hard» cider vinegar to a «mother» is added. The mother forms a sticky and viscous mass on the surface of the hard cider, inoculating with aerobic bacteria which convert the alcohol into acetic acid, creating a new generation.
Cider vinegar raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized contains all the nutrients that survive the fermentation and oxygenation, and its content looks suspicious, with pieces of dark mud floating around or settled on the bottom. Do not worry about this strange smell and appearance; this sediment stroke makes it one of the most popular on the market raw vinegars.
