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.

Apple Cider Vinegar for cats
I read you use apple cider vinegar for cats. Use part water, use part apple cider vinegar. My cats never have a bath and I use this method to wipe them down. Do you have to wipe or rinse off the 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!Posted by Bandit (Corona, Ca) on 01/13/2015
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. CatherineReplied by Theresa
