Itchy feet

    I've noticed that the wet grass seems to bother Rhys's feet. I'm been trying to remember to wipe them off when he comes in, and that seems to help with the chewing.

    Today I mixed up ACV and water to wipe his feet with and then patted them dry. I remember reading about it somewhere for that.

    Anybody else deal with this? What do you use to help? And if the ACV is the way to go, what's the ratio of the mixture to water and the best way to apply it?

    Thx so much! I was trying an iodine soak after shampooing with oatmeal shampoo. Realized that was a no-no!

    ACV stands for apple cider vinegar. I buy the stuff you find in the organic section of the grocery store.

    You'll find tons of information on from a supplementary standpoint. It's good for a ton of stuff, and most dogs like the taste of it.

    I use it to clean skin (like Rhys's itchy feet) and also mix it with alcohol and water for an ear cleaner. And my dogs love it on their food.
