I only used that advantix stuff once and the store brand (not the Hartz one) a couple times. It worked but the whole "don't touch the area it was applied to" and "Do not ingest" and all that really had me paranoid.
The apple cider vinegar you don't have to be worried!! Make sure it's not the clear stuff for fries and food. The good stuff comes in a bottle like the pic. At least that's the kind we get. Look for the "mother". I don't know that is exactly but it's effective fr ingestion and topical treatments.

Everyone says to look for the "mother" kind.

Is win dixie your loaction?? I'm confused. I got mine at Loblaws.. (which I think is in Canada only) WM might carry it, it would either be with regular apple cider vinegars (mine was) or in the natural section. There's many different bottles and brands but just look for "mother". I was actually surprised to find it in my grocery store!

How often do you reapply?
Hmmm.. Well I'd say it's like a half and half mixture of water and ACV.
We put it on her before she goes to run around in the woods, but at least once a day. If you are just looking to improve skin condition and keep fleas away you could probably do it a few times a week.

i wonder if it would get the same affect if I add it to her food.

That's perfect :) It IS super cheap... You'll have that bottle forevers!! You only need small bit of you're adding it to her food (1 tsp should do it) and if you dilute it for a spray you'll still not use much .

I use an oatmeal based shampoo on my pup. It's supposed to only keep fleas and ticks at bay, but I've noticed that it has worked on ALL biting insects. There had been something biting his underside (left these little infected bites).
The stuff I bought is called Sergeant's Skip-Flea & Tick. You'd have to do a bath every 10 days if you wanted to use just the shampoo though. One I bought has a Hawaiian Ginger scent. XD
