|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (2)||3%|
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] I tried the ACV for cat's conjunctivitis and it worked great! but it just doesn't get rid of it completely. I used Mercsol homeopathic remedy (30 strength) along with it and it kept it in check. I don't know what to do now - what can I add to this regime to get rid of it completely? It has spread to the other eye now after 3 weeks of treatment.

[YEA] My 7 lb. yorkie had what appears to be conjuctivitis, and I am glad I found this site. I noticed a gooey green goo seeping from her eyes yesterday, and she also had red around her right eye. I think our slightly bigger minature schnauzer may have scratched her because he constantly jumps up to greet us and steps on her.
Carefully cleaning the eye with a warm rag helps to discover if there are any serious issues with the eye. I then bought some apple cider vinegar after reading this site and applied it to the scruff of her neck.
I just poured some on a wet cloth, and then even pored some directly onto her neck to saturate the skin. She has pretty thick hair so I put the washcloth on her back and held it there to soak in.
I'm happy to report that even 30 min. later, the green goo has stopped appearing. I am going to keep checking her, and maybe apply one more time in the morning. So far, so good though. I'm glad this works because I cannot afford to pay $100 at the vet right now just for a check-up and medicine.Posted by Janice (IC, Iowa) on 03/23/2009
[YEA] Thank you so much for this site and helpful comments. My siamese had some thick yellow discharge in her eye on a saturday evening. I knew I wouldn't be able to get her into a vet until Monday, so I was going to see if there was something I could try in the meantime. I was fascinated with the ACV comments. I diluted 1 tablespoon of ACV with 2 tablespoons warm water and dropped it onto her neck with a medicene dropper, and massaged it in. She didn't mind at all, and licked some of it off that had dripped down. That very evening her eye looked better, and the next day, it was cleared up completely by late morning! (I gave her another 1 tsp of the mixture that morning). That was it! I am so thankful for this help. It saved me expensive vet bills and a stressful trip to the vet for my cat. thanks again!Posted by Lynn (Raleigh, NC) on 03/10/2009
I have been searching this site to find out a remedy for my dog's case of pink eye. I have seen some recommendations for putting ACV on the back of his neck but I am wondering how much I need to use and do I need to dilute it? He is a 62lb, chow/australian shepherd mix. Any other suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! This site is wonderful!Replied by Christine
