|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (2)||3%|
[YEA] I tested the ACV for conjunctivitis on our 6 year old cat Marmite who had chronic conjunctivitis relating to cat flu. It worked amazingly fast and well, it took about 4 days applying it twice sometimes 3 times a day. I didn't do anything else other than the ACV and sometimes washing out her eyes with a saline mix.
Then our 11 year old cat Molly developed acute conjunctivitis last week - emergency vet visit last weekend - her eye looked like it had a ping pong ball under it so I didn't want to take any chances. The vet gave her 2 antibiotic injections and an anti-inflammatory injection and ointment. That brought the heavy swelling down - but her eyes were still watery the past week and she was waking up with them shut and sticky but I thought, the antibiotics must still be working and it would take time. 2 nights ago I noticed the other eye starting to really swell up large - and not wanting it to get to the size of the other one, I quickly swabbed her neck and back with ACV and overnight her eye came right down in size - the same speed as all the vet medication. I've been swabbing her about 6 times a day and it's nearly back to its normal size today after about 3 days.
Another cat Tilly always has one runny eye so last night I swabbed her too and this morning her eye looked clear for the first time in ages. I think this is an excellent remedy if the condition is mild, but I do think vet help and a second opinion is needed if the condition looked as serious as Molly's - it'd be terrible to risk an animal losing an eye. I don't know how this remedy works but definitely absolutely worth a try! I didn't use organic ACV but I will get some today in case it works even better than the ordinary kind.
