|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (4)||5%|
[YEA] Hello I am glad to say my female cat is mostly normal because of ACV/apple cider vinegar, with the mother in it. Organic style. Three vets couldn't tell me why she couldn't stop throwing up everyday. Sometimes twice a day! Ugh for her and me. This went on for 2 years and got worse.
She was struggling with dehydration, urinary tract crystals, unsociable and a crusted up chin ,that she would scratch to bleeding. Drooling, raspy meows and always hiding.
All the ointments, antibiotics, prescriptions, etc. and some expensive natural herbs I bought online didn't do it, she'd have to get fluid injections. The expense and no results still. (She had accidently licked her flea drops over the counter product) Vet said this wasn't the problem. Even though I believe the ingestion of it damaged her digestive system.
Please note, this was an over the counter product I do not use anymore and hope someday is off the market! I now use prescription flea drops that is safe in case of ingestion. You know how cats will groom each other. The safe product I use begins with an "R".
Anyway,thought about putting her down. She was miserable and I couldn't help her. And was losing any quality of life.
In desperation I decided to "Google" search how to give a cat apple cider vinegar. I had read that race horses and dogs get apple cider vinegar. And I use it for myself, too. Why not my cat?
So, thanks a million for sharing this miracle of information. In our society of information overload, why is this not even known to Veterinarians? Now I can keep my cat and my budget intact.

After coming home to find my cat lethargic and disinterested in food & water, I realized his left ear was causing him extreme amounts of pain. I searched online for advice as I wasn't interested in an expensive vet bill and unnecessary tests. I stumbled upon the posts for Apple Cider Vinegar and tried it on my cat. I mixed one cap of ACV with one cap of tepid water, placed in an infant ear irrigator and squeezed as much as my cat would allow into the ear, massaging the area when possible. He wasn't a fan of the process, however, after one day he was purring and eating again. After 2.5 days, the infection released and drained. After 3 days, he's pretty much back to normal. Thank you!
