    Just like the title says. I have white vinegar, not apple cider, can I use it for my waterers? Thanks! :)

    It does not have the health benifits of organic ACV

    How long should they stay on vinegar. I went through a stage where it seemed one had very loose stools so I started her on acv. That was a couple of weeks ago.

    Give them ACV water for 1 week, then clean water for 3 weeks, then ACV water for 1 week and clean water for 3 weeks and so on. That way they'll still get the benefits, but not too much of a good thing.
