    I see alot of people mention they use it. Why does it need to be put in their water? What does it do for them? and how much per gallon?


    Thanks

    that is a great link, I will try it with them. Anyone know the dose's for cats and dogs? I only have seen non organic, I imagine that is fine to use as well?

    Just wondering if it matters using regular store bought acv, versus organic.....which I can not find. I read the previous thread that was refered to above but what does the "mother" mean?


    Thanks

    Use only organic, you can find it health food store's and some GNC stores . BRAGG'S is the best brand. The Mother is a strand-like chains of protein enzyme molecules that occurs naturally in vinegar.


    HOPE THIS HELPS

    Thank you, I was thinking whose mother made this LOL Learn something new everyday. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the link also. I do have a GNC and will call them in a bit to see if they carry this brand. I have not seen it when I have been in there, if not I will order from that site.
    Thanks!
