We run a foster-care home for cats. We take the animals from a shelters dealing with an overflow population problem. I've been including apple cider vinegar in cats diet, which is helping, but am still having the following problems - even with meds from the vet. Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to get rid of the following:
FLEAS - currently on Frontline, ACV dip, and I've flea bombed the house 4 times and vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. FVR - upper respitory infection that keeps going bacterial and can't shake
the viral. Feed cats ACV in soft food and vet put animals on an antibiotic, Clavamox.
CONJUNCTIVITIS - Cats are on eye drop meds from vet but not getting rid of problem
EAR MITES AND EAR YEAST INFECTIONS - On two ear drop meds from vet for both. The ears are looking better but cats are still trying to scratch way down inside their ears. I've made a wash with ACV, Witch Hazel, Olive Oil and Distilled Water. Is there something else I should be putting in wash to get rid of the problem?
RINGWORM - vet is having me pick up another drug from our local pharmacy today. We are having an adoption weekend a month from now and we will be taking in 13 more cats to get them healthy before the event. We are really looking for any kind of guidance. We are really not happy with the amount of drugs we are using and the vet doesn't offer any holistic remedies. Most cats range from 2-4 months in age. If you could even get me pointed in the right direction we'd all really appreciate it. This is a wonderful website and I wanted to thank you for creating it.
