Vinegar Rinse for Dogs

My vet directed me to give my cocker spaniel vinegar rinses, 10% vinegar and the rest water. But I am uncertain if he meant to leave it on her or rinse it off? She has had terrible skin allergies for 11 years now. I have given her allergy shots, benedryl, and other remedies for it throughout her life. I have found bathing her more often has made a little difference, she doesn't break out as much. But I am still in question about the rinse method?

Hi Ellen, I would think that you wouldn't need to rinse it off if it is only 10% vinegar but calling the vet would be the best.

Hi Ellen,

I, too, have a cocker spaniel with skin allergies. My vet gave me Malaseb shampoo to use on her and it has helped much more than the vinegar rinse did. You might want to get some from your vet or a pet store to try.

I have no interest in the company or the shampoo other than it helped my dog tremendously and I know how much misery she was in.

I found using the cheap dandruff shampoo from Walmart works good too. (08/09/2005)

All through my childhood, the only rinse we used on our own hair was white vinegar. It leaves hair residue free and shiny. I forgot all about it and when brushing my puppy, I noticed some flaking. I think I'll try it on her. Oh, rinse it out. (02/13/2006)

I have found that a lot of skins allergies are caused by the food the dog eats. I have a golden that had skin issues for years and I started feeding him Solid Gold Dog food and he is doing awesome. I also found that dogs have a reaction to white rice and chicken products in the food. Solid gold doesn't have all the processed stuff and doesn't have a lot of the stuff they use to preserve food that causes allergies too. I am in no way affiliated with Solid Gold, I just love the stuff! It works great. you can check them out on the web too. and they even have a place you can type in your specific issue and it will tell you which of there products helps that issue. (06/08/2006)
