Apple Cider Vinegar

Does apple cider vinegar help with eye tearing?

I was in a dog store the other day, and the owner said to put some of this vinegar in their dog food every second day to help with the eyes tearing?

If this does not help, can you tell me what I could get that is safe for my dog?

I am a new Havanese owner, and this forum sure is helpful

Welcome to the Forum! You Hav is Cute! I do not have problems with eye stains, so I can't help you out. I have been doing a search on Flea Control and it mentioned Apple Cider Vinegar. I haven't tried it yet, but said to mix it 1/2 in water and spray on fur each day.

She is 8 1/2 months old - and I tell you, I have never had such a wonderful dog. She is sitting on my lap as I type - we just adore her, and I love this Havanese forum. It is just the best.

I tried putting a tiny bit in the water bowl and the dogs turned their noses up at it. Didn't work in food either.
I didn't hear about using it for flea control and would like to know more about that. Frontline Plus hasn't done diddly for my dogs. grrrrrrrrrrrr

Sandi! Your Hav is cute . . . what is her name?

I tried the vinegar in the water, and Jackson wouldn't touch it. He is very picky about his water, though (has to be fresh and cold), so it's certainly worth a try. We are trying the parsley and yogurt trick on the food to see if that helps. Last night, the booger picked out the parsley . . . I am going to have to mash it up in some canned food.

There are lots of products you can try as well if you will search for tear staining on the forum.

We would love to see more photos of your baby

Do you use anything else for tear staining that is safe?

Well now she has a goofy name, but my husband picked it. My husband is german and when he was little, he had a dog named Fips, that he said was the best and smartest dog he had ever had. He lived in a small town and my husband's mother would tell Fips to go and pick him up from school every day, and this dog would do that. The sad end of the story is that Fips got run over one day, and came home to see my husband before he died. Anyway, long and short of this is that my husband has never forgot this dog, and still gets teary when he talks about him, so he wanted to name the dog Fips. I said she is a little girl and that doesn't suit her, so we compromised and called her Fipsy. When we got her from the breeder, her name was Sofie (which I liked better), but you know what, Fipsy suits her now, and that is her name.

You all have such great names for your Havs - mine is a little goofy, but it meant a lot to my husband to call her that.

Fipsy is so cute! I love it . . . especially with a story behind it like that. My husband had a mutt growing up nicknamed Hoona because DH's little brother couldn't pronounce the real name (that I don't even remember!)

I keep trying things on the stains . . . Angel Eyes works for a lot of people, but is expensive, messy, and controversial because of the antibiotic in it. But it does work! Jackson didn't like it, and I thought it was very messy and expensive. So we continue to try the natural remedies.
