Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a popular home remedy for a nearly limitless count of human ailments. Its most famous advocate, however, Dr. Jarvis of Vermont studied its use for animals just as much as with people and often found it to be an excellent natural remedy for infections, infestations, skin ailments, digestive complaints, and general health conditions. Cat owners time and again find that this most popular health remedy for pets applies to their own furry friends as well!
If you would like to use apple cider vinegar to improve your cat's health, you can add a small amount to their food or water (if your cat dislikes the taste or smell in one of these, it will often tolerate it in the other). ACV can also be diluted somewhat for topical use.
Natural Pet Cures: Fleas, ticks, upper respiratory infections, cystitis, ear infections, and ringworm have all been cured with apple cider vinegar.

[YEA] I used a 50/50 mix of organic Apple Cider Vinegar and water. I just put a few drops of Apple Cider Vinegar in a cup, added a couple drops of water, to where its barley got any color, and dropped in a cotton ball. Then I dabbed the soaked cotton ball between his shoulders and a little on his paws, it's okay to let them lick it off. My Harley's pink eye was nearly cured by the following morning. I kept doing the Apple Cider Vinegar treatments for a couple more days to make sure the virus was gone. I would do treatments while he was eating wet food. It's the only way I could do it without him running away or being pissed at me. Lol. Good luck!
My 8 month cat is not filled out like his brothers and sister. He is skinny and does not eat very much. He has a loss of appetite and does not play like he used to. I think he might have worms. Can I give him Apple Cider Vinegar? How much in his water and food. Catherine

[YEA] I have an older cat that every season with out fail she comes down with upper respiratory infection, she doesn't eat for days on end. This time it's been almost two weeks with out any food; however, she is drinking loads of water, so finally I had the hardest time getting her into a carrier then to the vets. It cost me $130.00 bucks and she was still the same, maybe worse. So finally I decided on vinegar, I didn't have any money at this time as it went all into the vet. However, I did have a cheap brand of ACV with no strong smell, which was absolutely great because she will not eat or drink if its been altered in any way, so I put a wee bit into her water, then a wee bit on her back as it's absorbed through the skin. Thankfully she didn't smell the vinegar and drank plenty. Prior to all this, she was spitting up a white foamy substance and her eye was terribly runny, so for the time being she is doing just great and is back to eating ok....
In response to my own message... My cat is doing even better, since her two week bout of upper respiratory infection and not eating at all//thankfully she was drinking plenty of water, since my previous post, my cat has made a turn for the better 100%// I am so happy for this site. I find so many people putting their pets to sleep rather than see them suffer, I think on a greater note I did the same thing because I spent way too much money on several rescue cats. They too had upper respiratory disease and at that time I didn't know about these natural solutions.Thank you Ted and company & friends for all your help and efforts put into this wonderful site. God Bless...Replied by Lauren
