|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (4)||5%|
[YEA] Thank you all for sharing your positive experiences with ACV and cats. My 23 year old cat was diagnosed with renal (kidney) failure & the vet wanted to put him on KD cat food & medication, or put him to sleep. I decided to try the AVC by 1st rubbing some on the back of his neck & then adding 1/4 tsp. to his 1 cup of daily water. Within 4 hours he went from not eating,drinking or urinating to doing all of the above! My prayers were answered!

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] When my cat became sick when he was two years old with crystals he almost died. I had to give the poor thing a sex change operation (yes remove the penis) so he could live. Otherwise he would of died. It costed me over $4,000. He is 9 now. 95% of the time I give him that Science Diet C/D to maintaince him, UNTIL.... the vet forced me to give him another unianry test. Otherwise since this food is perscription he wouldn't give it to me. I knew this cat still produced crsytals because I gave him one test again 3 years ago and the doctor told me in a grave voice that he had really bad crystals. After I explain he is okay with his operation the doctor was cool with it. So here I go again paying more money for something I already knew. It really felt like the vet was doing it more for the money, holding cats food over it's head unless I paid money for this test. So I did, and started to research about natural ways to stop this. The test came back positive for the crystals and the doctor wanted to put the cat back on the Science Diet S/D and test him again in a month. So I really was fed up. The point is the cat can still pee, but of course the crystals aren't good. I told the doctor I am going to try soft food and 1/2 capful of ACV mixed in the food. So far since he has been on it for a week, I can say that he doesn't get as bloated AND he is much more regular. I will keep you posted, let's see if I got rid of these crystals once and for all. I will be testing him again in less than 3 weeks. I'll let you know what happened.Replied by Mama Rose
