|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (4)||5%|
[YEA] My cats get a teensy bit (like a 1/2 teaspoon) of ____Raw ACV in their wet food, and I put some extra water in their food. They are healthy, bright-eyed and have no problem with crystals or other pee problems.
It's important to get the RAW ACV. Don't get the clear kind, because it does not have all the vitamins/minerals.
Clear ACV has all the beneficial vitamins/minerals pasteurized (heated) out! So, be sure to use only the raw kind. It has a slimy film at the bottom that they call "Mother of vinegar" because it's the highly beneficial bacteria. It's cloudy and brown, which most people look at and think, oh that looks gross, but this kind of vinegar is natural and great for you and your cat. So you want the kind with that.
I use it on a flea comb and comb through their fur to help control fleas. Also, when they get an itchy patch or a scab, put a Q-tip or cotton ball dipped in vinegar and rub it on the spot. My kitty loves this because she knows it will feel better and takes the itch out!
Cats know when you're doing something to help them.
Oh, just wanted to mention to the girl who feeds tuna fish-- I know we've been taught that they love it, and it's true, because it's so smelly of fish, but tuna fish is not good for cats-- something about the taurine gets depleted from their body when they eat it. Check www.holisticat.com and www.catnutrition.org for natural cat food recipes. The RAW CHICKEN LIVERS is good, though, once or twice a week, though.
I feed my babies raw chicken everyday. They even eat the raw chicken bone! (BUT NEVER FEED CATS COOKED BONES-- THE BONES SPLINTER AND CAN CHOKE OR POKE HOLES THROUGH THEIR INTESTINES.) Again, see the previously mentioned sites for more info on balancing your cat's diet. I know I need to be providing more balance.
So, I use ACV for my cats and for me (has cured me of tendonitis from typing too much! to helping me lose weight to keeping my skin really nice to curing my stomach problems to giving me good energy.
I think you all will be really pleased when you start using ACV inside and out. It's truly a miracle natural medicinal that has been used since the time of Hippocrates ("the father of medicine").
Be well and happy.
