I care for 5 feral cats. One has respiratory issues. I put Apple Cider Vinegar in their food daily. Only a cap full. Is that enough? Can I continue with this daily to keep healthy kitties I cannot touch?

I want to thank this site for helping me save my baby Sookie. She was about 4 month December 2017 when she got a bad upper respiratory infection. Poor thing was so bad I didn't expect her to make it. I did research and try so many different methods to help and I used different home remedies and got no results and she was getting worst. I just wish I could have ran across this site before I did because her eyes both of them was swelled shut by the time I ran across this site and got the apple cider vinager (with the mother/organic) and mixed it all like this site recommended.

At 1st I only had the regular apple cider vinager and I saw very small improvement, which was more than I have seen in a week. So I made the trip to get the good kind you guys call for. I swear by it to everyone now and I tell everyone with cats and kittens about this site and the apple cider vinager. Don't get me wrong that you will think that the organic kind is more expensive than the regular usual kind we all usually keep in our pantries. But it is what they say "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!! " LOL. Cause as soon as I got home and mixed the organic kind together with water and put it on the back of her and her brother's neck and I seen her improve by 50% overnight. Along with using a vaporizer 24/7 to help her breath and to break up all the congestion in her lungs and all I crushed up lysine and put it in her food when I could get her to eat or desolved it in warm water and put it in a dropper and drop it down her throat so she would get the medicine. And also giving her a round of penicillin shots every other day. And I put Vaseline on her eyes to help ease her and help them from scabbing over.

After 2 weeks of doctoring her she finally came thru the week after christmas. I had told my husband that the only thing I wanted for christmas was for her to get better and could care less if I got anything else. I got my christmas wish, it was just a few days late but the improvement everyday gave me hope. It broke my heart to watch her lose all her weight and she wouldn't eat and you couldn't force feed her either. And we kept dropping pedi lite down her throat also while she didn't have an appetite. And we gave her strong smelling cat pate from the can or pouch to get her to eat when she would. I knew it was because she couldnt smell anything and a kitten is bad for not eating anything if they can not smell it.

All I know this site is a blessing and my sookie is here today for all your help. I believe in yall's remedies and will always pass the site along to anyone that needs it. She is doing so good now and hardly has any signs of ever being sick but for a little glaze or fog on her eyes which they look better everyday which I'm sure they will never be completely 100% but she sure is a lucky kitty. She is smart and so loving. I don't know what I would have done if I had lost her. I know that I would be experiencing her at all and she is a delight. And she thanks you guys too from the bottom of her heart also.

With my cat, 10ppm and depending on how sick they are, dropper full every 2 hours till there is a noticeable change. Longest time I had to do that was 16 hours (8 doses total) but the cat was almost dead from eating bad treats. After that I go to 2-4 times a day till they are well. Once they "seem" well I do it for 2 more days just to make sure.

How much 10 ppm colloidal silver do we give our cat if he has that respiratory herpes. Vets don't help. They gave him an antibiotic shot - basically it resolved nothing. Sounds like his nasal won't allow clear breathing, he sneezes in the water & food all the time. He looks so sick & sad, like he may get taken down permanently eventually by this. He was born 2003, looked so strong & great vets couldn't believe his age, until this happened. I don't want to let him be sick like this. It's lingered for months. So, I want to give him "enough" of the 10 ppm colloidal silver, & I do have some so am ready to go.

Apple cider vinegar worked for our cat too but our vet told us to put our cat on a raw meat diet. we mix ground beef with sardines and to our surprise he got well. So we keep him on the raw meat all the time we mix the ground beef and sardines and make meatballs and freeze it
I understand that your vet and other people will say no that is not healthy like I did. But you have to understand that all cats in the while eat their prey raw. Not cooked. Our cat has been eating this way for seven years. Which once was a very sick cat spending tons of money to go to a different vet. Now we have not gone to a vet in seven years and this cat is the pigment of health

ACV cost $5.99 @ winn Dixie and thank God I can buy it with foodstamps because my cat was so sick with respiratory infection and I couldn't afford the vet this month so I got a bottle and dipped chicken pieces in the water solution and he is looking and feeling better overnight :) The organic brand with the "mother" is awesome.

Currently battling deworming, a bot fly bite, and what seems to be a URI starting. If I'm not cleaning diarrhea, I'm changing bedding, washing my hands until they are now bleeding, and my clothes are washed and changed at least 3 times a day. The vet estimates Frank to be about 7 weeks old. When I took him they gave him dewormer, his first boosters, & antibiotics for the fly bite. I'm trying the ACV approach as he has just started sneezing and watery eyes this morning. I'm praying it works.

Tonight out of desperation I started looking for a natural remedy for my sweet lil man, MoMo. Poor guy likes to play indoor outdoor where am I now and the first night it got really cold and dewyey here he oops-ed up and got stuck outside ll night. within 24 Hours he started sneeing and weezing. I checked his nose for any signs of "anything being wedge up his nose" all was well. Gums looked well colored. But I noticed his eyes were matty and weepy. He had a "I can't cough up a hairbone" cough.

Having just lost a beloved Service Dog of 13 1/2 years panic set in. I remembered as a akid we always treated out cats eyes with warm milk if they got yukky. So with my sweet husbnds help we managed to clen up his eyes with warm milk. AND, we also used a small infant nasl syringe and were able to suck out bit of mucous. MoMo was actually very well behaved through our series of actions. That eveniing he slept reasonably well on the foot of our bed("HIS DOMAIN NOT MY FEET!!! Lol) But the next morning same thing again......

Fast forward tonight... my husband and I have tried coaxing him to eat since yesterday nothing not even his favorite treats. Then he did something very strnge he walked to the water bowl and started swatting the water around and attempting to dunk in and drink only to immediately return to swatting it. He wasn't able to drink. so that brings me to now.

I once again clened his eyes with warm milk, but the matting was so gooey and yuk that a q tip or cotton ball would not work. So I used soft ABD pads(surgical pads) once his eyes were cleaned I soaked his front paws in Apple Cider Vinegar (not organic but ACV just the same all I had) I also rubbed very generous amount around his neck and shoulders. He was not as thrilled this time about all the "manhandling", but complied just the same. He is now sitting right behind my recliner and pouting refusing to come out. However, his sneezing has almost stopped and the coughing got very intense for about 10 minutes and now has stopped. I was scared so I crawled back there with him and poor baby looked at me like "seriously mom, this stinks".

His breathing doesn't seem anywhere as laboured so praying with a few more doses and dousings he will be back to his usual King TUT I AM mood. I will post more tomorrow.

(ADDED NOTE: had not thought about the litter box, as we are a multi-cat family thanks to the poster above who mentioned it. while we scoop daily had not "fully emptied and disinfected it for almost 2 weeks(we use scoopable to save money) Also treated our little "Princess NeeNah Gray, while she has/had no signs or symptoms call it an ounce of prevention to stave off the need for a pound of cure. She however was QUITE UPSET t the stench of the acv. She is still grooming......heeeheee aka preventive treating herself.

Again KUDO's to all who hve posted previously and thanks!

I would resume treating as you did and keep at it longer. Using Apple Cider Vinegar daily or colloidal silver daily may not be a bad idea as a preventative.


Lysine
Posted by Laurie (Niagara Falls, Canada ) on 10/02/2017

My one yr old cat had URI about six, or so, weeks ago. Gave her Apple cider vinigar, colloidal silver, l-lysine, and steam from shower every day.( still on ACV & l- lysine daily. Recovered beautifully in a couple weeks. This morning started again with sneezing/coughing. Do I start over again or go to vet. Brought her in last time, told vet my plan, didn't seem to concerned, so started with home remedies. Could use some advice. I'm a health nut so I'd rather not put chemicals in her body if not going to help her anyway. Want to do the best for my furry babies, with limited money as I'm a widow. Can't wait to hear from anyone. Thank u.

Sweetpea522, That's so encouraging, and am so glad for your kitties! I have used Raw Apple Cider Vinegar for my own health for years, would never be without it I n my kitchen, but never seriously thought to give to my cats. I have five cats, all spayed and neutered now, and indoor cats.

My two boy cats, 2 years old, have kitty cold or herpes, and one especially is quite miserable, but discharge is still clear. I will use on both boys cats. If you don't mind me asking: Why don't you spay and neuter your cats, to keep the population down? There is a lot of suffering with so many homeless kittens, and that is a huge responsibility, to care for dozens of cats.

Posted by Flavia (Western United States) on 08/10/2017

Tabitha Gassaway, did your kitty end up doing okay? To anyone reading, I would suggest NOT putting vinegar solution directly on the face, not on the nose either, because just like when we have a cold, our noses become more sensitive, and it might burn. Instead put it where they will lick it off, like paws, back, neck, maybe a bit on their chest and chin. Apple three, maybe four times a day for bad cases with lots of mucous.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Flavia (Western United States) on 08/10/2017

Hi Barb, I wish someone had gotten back to you, it's sad no one replied to your question. I have no experience with hydrogen peroxide for cats. What ended up happening, how is Elmoe now?

As a general bit of advice, I would say don't let a cat go longer than a day or two - at most - without food, before starting to try to get some nutrition into them, even if it I just chicken broth. It's also very important to keep them hydrated when they are sick and not taking water on their own. You can saturate their paws with water, they can lick it off, or gently feed them water from a syringe, in the corner of their mouth (be gentle though, and go in the side of the mouth, not the front).


Lysine
Posted by Flavia (Western United States) on 08/10/2017

David and Therese,

That's amazing, because my cats love L-lysine in their food. I tasted it before I gave it to them, opened the capsule, tasted a bit of the granules, and it just tastes slightly salty. Maybe that is why they like it, it is like adding a wee bit of salt to their food. I sprinkle the granules on their dry kibble food, add a bit of water just to moisten the dry food, stir till the L-lysine granules dissolve, and they eat it all up.

When my cats were sick with kitty cold, I gave 100mg a day - but in two doses - 500mg in morning, 500mg in evening. It helped one cat within 2 days, she got well quickly. The other two cats didn't seem helped by it, but maybe they just needed more of the L-lysine. I was worried about giving too much Lysine though, so I never went above 1000mg a day for them, and I started the apple cider vinegar cure instead. I only just started that today, so I have to see how that goes.

Judy West, I agree in part with your comment, that it is crucial to help get an animal's immune system strong again, with these good, natural supplements. All the more reason then to avoid the typical vet's recommendations of any harsh medications. The medication you mention: VIYO Recuperation has ingredients that are harmful to a cat with a delicate immune system. Did you read the ingredient label? It contains animal "by-products" - which is the cheapest, lowest quality meat, and milk and dairy, which is very hard for most cats to digest, because of the very large fat molecules in it. The old myth that milk is good for kitties is outdated, and simply untrue - milk is generally bad for felines. Some may tolerate it well, but it is generally a bad idea, and will result in diarrhea and then dehydration in cats. If you MUST give a dairy product to a cat (why?) then try GOAT MILK YOGURT. Not the milk, but the YOGURT with active cultures. Goats are much smaller animals, the fat in their milk is easier for cats to digest.

Suseeq, what kind of vitamin C, and in what form is safe to give to cats? There is C citrate, C ester. It is confusing. Also, how much is too much vitamin C to give to an adult cat, about 10 lbs?


Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Flavia (Western United States) on 08/10/2017

Jennifer Goldsboro, the "mother" in RAW apple cider vinegar means the culture that makes the vinegar fermented, nutritious, and of good medicinal use. If you just use any plain apple cider vinegar, and if it does NOT have the words "raw" and "mother" on the label, it is good only for salads - not for any medicinal value.

You can find this raw apple cider vinegar (with the "mother" culture) even in Walmart, and in lots of big chain supermarkets, but you can for sure find it at upscale grocery stores. I get mine for a good price at Walmart. One of the best brands is Bragg's. A large bottle can last months, and costs relatively little. It's GREAT to have on hand, for animals and people alike, for all sorts of ailments.

Carmen and Carol, how did your cats turn out? My two 5-mo kittens have had very bad sneezing and snotty noses (yellow/green mucus) for the two weeks I've had them. They were on antibiotics for one week and have been on L-Lysine and Probiotics since then.

I am hoping this ACV remedy will at least improve their symptoms. Did either of you continue to have problems with the URI after trying this method?

I'm a foster, and one kitten is occasionally sneezing, and another has a weepy eye. Both are hardly tame, and there is no way I can get these antibiotics down them. I'm at my wit's end. I do have some ACV.

Hi there, I found out today after going to the vet for almost 3 months- and intermittent doses of antibiotics- that my cat Kaloo- might have a fungal infection and I might have to see a specialist- my heart sank- so I started hunting the net for alternative and proven treatments- found this site - and would like to know from any or most of the people who treated their cats that ACV remedy is a proven success- and any side effects if any ... thanking you all- Maddie

Thank you sooo much for this tip.

I to have taken my Jemima to the vet and been given antibiotics (which did not work).

I boiled 1 part AppleCider Vinegar & 1 part water in a saucepan, which created a steam then held Jemima over the steam with a light cloth over her head to capture the steam.

She sneezed and all the mucus came out, which I cleaned up and now she is breathing normally.

It worked instantly.

Thank You so very much

ACV for feline upper respiratory infections

The easiest way to cure an URI in cats is with ACV. I had one kitten who had the worst URI. Meds didn't work and I was at my wits end. I put some ACV and water in the tea kettle and started to heat it up. In the meantime I put Sid (the cat..) in his carrier and on the kitchen counter as close as safely possible to the burner on which the tea kettle sat. I placed a large towel over the carrier and waited for the water to steam out of the kettle. Then I let Sid inhale the steam from the kettle for a few minutes (5-10 if possible and the kitty is not freaking out by now..). After doing this 2-3 times, I noticed a significant improvement and much less snorting and sneezing. Poor Sid recovered and has never had an URI since.

I have used this successfully on other cats.

Feline Respiratory Disease

Wow....and thank you...thank you....thank you! One of my 5 cats Opi got sick during the Christmas season of course, didn't eat or move, thought well that's it. Trip to the vet with tears in my eyes knowing he won't come home.Well $324.00 later after blood work and of course a prescription for 14 days of antibiotics, and three maybes, I was just happy that we didn't needed to put him down. The vet probably did his best he could at this point, also gave us a bag full of can food to force feed, and two pills to stimulate his appetite. I do remember asking if he may have a hairball stuck, he said no. After .ca 8 days Opi started sneezing and wheezing, my first thought was darn Antibiotics, the same happens to me till I decided not to take them anymore. I'm a firm believer of natural remedies, so why not for my cat...and that is how I found your site. In the meantime all my other cats started sneezing....when I read about organic ACV I thought, could it be that simple?

YES! It was... after one treatment...speechless....and he lost a hairball that was three fingers thick, after putting the ACV in their water. Can't thank you enough....I will never be without ACV.

I'm amazed, happy and relieved. I'm also mad as H...

I have a cat who has decided to live outside and has a very serious respiratory ailment: yellow phlem coming out of his nose and drooling from his mouth. I have two indoor cats who have respiratory problems: one is breathing heavily, the other is sneezing.

I went online and found this site and learned about the Organic Apple Cider Vinegar cure for respiratory problems in cats. I bought it and tried it last night on ALL of the cats. I took cotton balls soaked in 1 cup of spring water and 2/3 cup of the OACV and I rubbed it all around the scruff of their necks and between their shoulder blades (I didn't do the half and half because I wanted to start out with a less smelly solution to get them used to it) I prayed and waited.

I am happy to report that this morning the cat with the serious respiratory problem - I thought he was going to die - is doing better. I'm amazed. One treatment. One. And this cat is breathing better, the phlem is still coming out, but not as much. His eyes look brighter. He's eating more and drinking water. He even came to me this morning and let me put the solution on him again.

The other two cats, well, let me tell you, I woke up last night to check on them and had to turn on the light because I didn't hear the heavy breathing that usually woke me up. This cat was sleeping peacefully with just a hint of heavy breathing. And the other cat only sneezed once last night.

Thank the Lord and thank you Earth Clinic.

Now, why am I mad. In fact, I am very angry because I had to adorable cats who both had respiratory infections and the Vets I took my cats to advised putting them to sleep. To spare my cats anguish I took their advice. Those cats would probably be alive today if the Vets had only told me about Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

I am recommending OACV to all my friends. I'm also recommending this site to all my friends.

My cat adopted 6 years ago with a horrible case of URI never really got over it 100%. I as well as the vet we were suspecting the allergies, I tried anything to minimize exposure to any allergen, nothing was helping. Cat was always sneezing, gagging. Finally another vet diagnosed her (the cat) with the feline herpes virus that symptoms in cats with constant rhinovirus. I am using Lysine to keep her immune system up and humidifier to keep her nose wet not mentioning constant wiping the buggers. I will try the ACV for sure.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Barbara (Ewing Tonwship, Nj) on 11/13/2016

A feral kitten arrived a week ago. I tried to get town animal shelter to help. I explained her situation and the disappearance of two others from across the road. Very bad neighbor terrified them but worried her eyes -- she did not look well and I could not touch her. I put out food and kept my cats in. Then Elmoe got out and it kitten disappeared. Finally got Elmoe in but he immediately looked sick. It has been two days and he is not eating. I used the recommended vinegar and he has huge amounts of flem in his mouth. He is not hiding any more and he has had fluid by eye dopper. More vinegar today (day 3) and on his fur, ears, etc. Vet I go to is expensive and no available. In fact, the entire vet services here are very very expensive. I am 72 and have put cats first always so today I will make a decision about property taxes. I will of course put Elmoe first. I need to now how long I should expect Elmoe to refuse to eat and how to administer hydrogene peroxide if I can find it at drug store??

Thank you for your help with this.

Coconut Oil, Colloidal Silver
Posted by Meliabird (Tampa, Fl) on 08/14/2016

My cat has been sick with for about two months now and it was reoccurring before I took him to vet for a month before. I thought it would go away on its own but it didn't which is why I took him to vet. This is my first time for any of my cats to ever have a URI, so this is all new to me. So the conventional antibiotics didn't work. The congestion pills worked and he was able to eat with ease but after two weeks of giving him everything, he actually got worse. It's been a month now that I didn't give him any meds because I thought again he could heal on his own. So then I found a hollistic near me which I may be taking him tomorrow. He's not eating and he's lost a lot of weight.

I bought him coconut oil and colloidal silver which are both really good strong natural effective antibiotics that I now will help him. He's probably 10 pounds with his weight at the moment, normally 14 or 15 pounds, he's a Big sweetheart. so I've given him 0.5 coconut oil since he's never taken it before and with all of the liquid chicken baby food that I'm feeding him with a syringe I don't want to overwhelm him.

So 1 tsp of baby food, and I've been spraying the CS in his mouth once, and I sprayed it into his nose as well. I'm working on giving him more CO, CS, and baby food through out the day and I've been with him seeing how he's been behaving and making sure he's not vomiting or anything, which he is not at all. I'm wondering how much does of the CO, CS, and liquid baby food doses should I give him?

I've been starting off small because I'm not sure how much to give him. Please help me! He's also drinking constantly and going to the bathroom right after, which could have something to do with the kidneys or lots of things. I'm trying to save myself from going to the holistic vet, because I have other bills at the moment so I'm trying to wait it out and cure him of his URI. He's very congested which is causing him to not eat. He's constipated as well, and he's been trying to go potty out of the litter box here and there but mainly in the litter box. So I think I might give him baby food sweet potatoes as well.

My sons girlfriend came over with two bangel kitties ( one got calyces Virus and had a 104 fever and was very ill, ulcers all over her mouth and tounge I had carafate, so I gave it to her, then her sister contracted it too. Then I have four 5 to 6 week old kittens (who 'i mix formula and food now . One of the cats has diarrhea & congestion and seems to give a cough and had snot in her nose . I already have 1 cat and three small dogs and now, my 4 year old dog is sneezing whom I found in my bed not wanting to move. ( I made her get off and eat and gave her some antihistamine) . I notice the other day that sick kitten crying and it seemed to have a bellyache, not sure, it was bed time and the cry was different then I had heard before. Yesterday, she had a fever was shaking and her nose was congested, today she has congestion in her chest and although she ate this morning, I tried to give her straight formula and she wasn't having it. I want to give her the ACV... But I have no idea how much to give her and am scared to death, now my animals have it and it will spread.

The bangles had calyces virus. Is this what this is .? The vet said all the cats now have it, however none of them have those symptoms . I am very anxious ..

They are foster kitties that came here and I keep getting told the foster place will pay for the vet, the formula and everything else. This hasn't been the case, so either the girlfriend is out of and is putting off having the rescue pay for this or basically, there is no rescue . The bangles she found. I cannot afford to take another one to the vet ( one of them cost me $108.00) I have spent over $240.00 n the last two to three weeks, ( Im so exhausted from taking care of them all, and cant seem to find a place that will lower any cost to foster kitties. I am very afraid that all of them are going to contract her infection ( my animals one seem to already) and that they are going to die. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Mindy

Hi, my cat has severe upper respiratory infection and has been battling this virus for a year. I've looked everywhere for help by 4 different veterinarians and spending $1,500 u.s. Dollars on medicines and lab tests trying to resolve the problem and save his life. I've tried orbax, famiclover, lysine, and others. I'm currently using clavimox which is the only medication keeping him alive.my question is should I go with colloidal silver Orally at 10ppm for several days or OACV instead? Thank you if you could help me.

Wow!! Thank you! What a story. I am in the process of trapping six abandoned, feral kittens. So far, they are passing their tests for leukemia, AIDS etc, for which I am very thankful, but they do have upper respiratory illness. Our vet gave each a seven day antibiotic shot, but that is not helping with the eyes of two of them. I'm assuming they are feeling better because we are knocking off a bacterial component of the illness, but the viral component is able to continue working on the eyes, that is, one eye each of two kittens. I think, after reading this, I will try giving them the chicken broth I make for them and adding the vinegar to the broth. I am already ripped up pretty good from one of them so trying to put vinegar directly on the kittens would be wild, to say the least. Putting antibiotic ointment into the affected eyes is enough, already! Did your kitties' eyes become inflamed, were they kind of squinting out of one of their eyes?

I have a home filled with kitties, inside and outside kitties (boys outside girls inside) including 6 small litters of kittens. One of our outside cats had gotten in the house for just a few minutes while bringing in the groceries and drank from the water bowls and ate from their food bowls as well. I never thought too much of it as long as he didn't try to mate with one of the new Mommies. While outside feeding the boy cats, we noticed that the same cat who came in earlier had what looked like a scraped chin or perhaps a burn from the tailpipe of a car. We cleaned it up with a soapy cloth and water then dabbed on Neosporin. By morning he looked awful, drooling everywhere, hoarse voice, lethargic and his fur was hideously crusty on both front legs and just overall unhealthy looking. The mouth sore got worse and was having a tough time eating hard food as well. Within a week all the cats inside and out had come down with his illness, it was a nightmare! I honestly thought they were all going to die. I was devastated to say the least but after reading the cat ailments, treatment and stories of how cats responded so well to OACV (ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR) I had a ray of hope!! It was worth a shot and I wasn't about to give up on these kitties (about 40 kitties) who are so dependant on us for care, especially under these circumstances!

After purchasing a 32oz.bottle of OACV at my local grocery store, I came home and made a batch of OACV/Water ratio of about 1/4 cup OACV to 1cup purified drinking water from our home water system. I'm sure any normal faucet water would work fine but wasn't sure at that point if I was going to try adding some to their drinking water- turns out I didn't need to do that after all. I soaked cotton balls in the solution and applied to each cat on back of their necks down thru shoulder blades and to all 4 of their paw pads, especially the fronts because they will lick them throughout their day when cleaning themselves and Wallahh!! OACV ingested by default! Most of them didn't respond with licking their paws right away as I had hoped but made sure they all had a pretty good soaking to their neckline and also their front paws topsides as well as paw pads. Make sure it gets in between their toes/claws as well so the solution gets in there real good causing them to lick due to feeling wet and uncomfortable perhaps. I did this just 2 times in 24 hr period and once the following day and what a remarkable difference. Not all cats healed at same rate but most of them made noticeable recovery within a couple of days. Their fur was looking healthier, the smell they all had while being so sick was diminishing and the drooling was almost gone as well. I continued to give them fresh clean water, thoroughly washing there water & food dishes daily including their litter boxes. Germs this serious can be spread thru their bowls being shared and their waste. I truly believe the OACV brought them back from a journey that was leading them to death. Upper respiratory illnesses in cats are seriously dangerous and many times fatal. Every cat owner should keep a bottle of. OACV on hand just in case- there are so many things it is good for! Go online, do some research, then try it for yourself. It doesn't hurt and it will help! Must be in the glass bottle, raw, unfiltered, stating "Organic" and "With The Mother" on the label.

I just tried apple cider vinegar today for my mommy cat. She's a stray that I adopted right after she had the babies (all but two died, very sickly). She has never been in great health, coat is rough, but I have no history. The two surviving kittens appear to be great. Both were sick when I got them but have recovered. I used colloidal silver wash for their eyes and in water, give them lysine in the food.

Mom just started sneezing her head off about a week ago. It has steadily gotten worse. So I did the ACV on a cotton ball, rubbed her feet and scruff of neck. I've done it twice today and she has not sneezed again. That is hugely exciting for me :) I will report back after a few days. Thank you, EarthClinic. I've been a faithful reader since about 2006, this is my first review.

Aww, I am so sorry for your loss and I do hope the cat you still have feels better soon. I am just learning that ACV works for upper respiratory disease. I have had one cat for two years and when I adopted her, she already had the condition. I have tried all different types of Lysine in every form and brand I can find, antibiotics to thin out the junk she sneezes, and humidifiers. None of them work at all or it is does lessen her symptoms, it is not for very long. A couple of weeks ago, I got two kittens, one for me and one for my daughter. We named them Simba and Nala, well my daughter named them that. Now, they are starting to sneeze! Seriously? Am I going to have 3 cats sneezing junk all over my house? That stuff comes out of her nose with some force sometimes!

I was reading earlier that a woman had a kitty with chronic asthma...and gave him 1/2 tsp a day of coconut oil and it cured him after 7 days. He threw up a bit...the toxins. Google Earth Clinic Cats Asthma...and the page will come up. It's the first one, under coconut oil.. Maybe it could clear him out?

Hope he's ok, Kriya

Oh dear! Take a small cup, put in 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to 3 tablespoons of filtered water. With a very clean medicine dropper, every hour, on the hour, put in 2 to 3 drops in between his gums. Do this until you see improvement.

Every 1/2 hour, give him 2 to 3 drops of filtered water to prevent dehydration.

When the kitty perks up, do the ACV procedure every 2 hours and the water procedure every 1 hour.

When the kitty wants to eat, get organic grain free wet food.

This is how I made my older kitty get over a very severe respiratory infection. It took about 3 days for measure able improvement. It was work but my sweetie is purring up a storm.

Blessings...

Note: No flouridated water!

I have a beautiful boy, he's 19 years old, we've had him since he was only seven weeks old, ( his sister of the same litter recently passed away JUST before her 19th birthday RIP Tisa) and her brother Shika, and since she passed away nearly 3 months ago, he just went to totally depressed, and his health is declining and fast, the vet basically said that he's developed a respiratory issue and we need to either euthanize him or let him slowly go, but I want to help him, FAST to at least help him breath. I have a humidifyer and he and I both love and need it. yes, he sleeps with me on my bed. I am so worried about my furry boy, he's been through a lot and I want to make his last days as easy as possible.

I read a lot of your how to apply the ACV but is there a video or youtube that I can watch to understand how you are really applying this to the cat? I need help, ASAP! I'm so afraid that I'm going to lose him. If he dies, I don't know how I'm going to take it, especially losing his sister of 19 years just a couple months ago. PLEASE someone, help me adminster this asap. I'm so heartbroken, my Shika needs help.

Small world with similar posts! I've been treating another kitten with stubborn upper respiratory! The only thing really working for her is mixture of half water and half of organic apple cider vinegar!

I dip his front paw in it, clean up his nose and rub under it, and with a cotton ball I dip it in the mixture and rub the scruff part of the next 2-3 times, rub her ears inside and put about 10 drops in his can food! This is the only thing helping him!! It's been 3 days now and he looks so much better! 👍

Apple Cider Vinegar, Bone Broth

I have two cats; one female and one male. The male cat Ferguson is about 1.5 years old and he came down with a “kitty cold” about two weeks ago. He was sneezing a lot through the day and the sneezing continued to the next day. I noticed he wasn't up running around and playing like normal. I kept an eye on him and by the 3rd day he was getting watery eyes and runny nose. He looked pale in the gums and felt like he was running a fever. I read about the apple cider vinegar so on the first night of treatment, I used the half water half vinegar method. I rubbed it on his paws, neck, whiskers, and in front of his ears. But more importantly, I really wanted him to get him hydrated quickly. I gave him chicken bone broth. I was making some chicken gumbo that night anyway and I was boiling a chicken for about an hour. Bones and all. Then I strained out the broth and gave him some after it cooled. Luckily he still had an appetite and he drank a lot of it. That exact next day he looked a thousand times better. I continued both the vinegar and bone broth into the second day and also added water into his soft food. I tried to up his fluids any way I could. Every day he got better and better and by the end of the week all of his symptoms vanished. I'm very happy that my Fergie full of spunk is back in action! I think the Bone broth really helped more than anything because it's chalked full of vitamins and antioxidants. Upping his fluids and getting a boost of vitamins really helped a ton. I really hope this helps all of you.

Dear Earthclinic,

I have an older cat that has had a bad problem with her sinuses. We tried everything to help her and nothing worked. I came here to Earth Clinic to see what I could do for her. I tried the L-Lysine 500mg as advised. Just one treatment and the cat could breath without trouble the next day! I am so amazed! I will give her this product 3 times a week as advised. I used 500mg (I crushed the pill) and rolled moist cat food in the crushed L-Lysine. Our cat didn't like the taste because she left a quarter of the cat food. (She loves this cat food) But it worked anyway! The next time I gave her the dose in her moist cat food she ate it all! I can't get over how well it worked on my cat! We nearly put her to sleep because she was suffering so much. Thank you Earth Clinic!

I am treating some of my kittens right now and did a mixture of 2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar (the mother) in one cup of water! I dipped a cotton ball in the mixture squeezed it and rubbed the inside of their ears and dipped one of their paw in the mixture! I do this 2 to 3 times a day! I even put some on their neck! I think the best I see is mixing some of the mixture with can food! I would say maybe 10 drops! This really does the trick! I even clean their nose with it!!! Love this stuff!

Cats don't tend to start eating again once they've stopped, without some intervention. It's like they totally forget they have to and things quickly start shutting down. I know vet bills are hideous, but I really think you should take you little guy in. We had a great cat that was with us for 18 years. At least three times in his life we had to take him in to kickstart his eating. And it was worth it every time.

Thank you so much for the apple cider vinegar tip. Read on best method for administering to cats last night. The night we adopted our beautiful cat he came down with the sneezes. By the next night he has a fever of 106.5. The vet diagnosed him with Upper Respiratory Infection. He seemed to be getting better for a day or 2 but on Thursday he got even worse. He had green/yellow gunk coming out of his eyes and nose. He stopped eating and his fever was back up to 106. After finding this site I Ran out and got some raw organic apple cider vinegar last night. First I did a steam bath where I put him in his cage, covered half with a towel over a mixture of hot steaming ACV and water. Let it steam him out in the cage for 10-15 minutes. Then I rubbed some on his back and front paws. Repeated this once more before bedtime. This morning I woke up and he greeted me good morning. His temp was down to 103.5. He ate some food (which he hasn't done in a couple days). Tonight he seems even better. Yay!!!! I'll continue to give him these treatment for a few days and hopefully he will get all better.

I just wanted to stress how important it is to help you pet get stronger as much as possible along with the treatment that you decide to use so that your pet can recuperate better, especially when it hasn't much of an appetite. I have nine cats. One of my cats has FeLV & FIV for about 3 years now. Because of this he is susceptible to a number of problems including URI. I try to keep his immune system as strong as possible using something a vet told me about a product called "VIYO Recuperation". This has helped me get through some very difficult times with all of my cats. I just wanted to share this because it has worked so well. I also heard ground up pumpkin seed has a lot of good qualities. I hope this helps.

Hello everyone. As reported in my original post I treated the kittens who were sick with URI's or FVI with ACV. Sadly one of the kittens did die. In the end I tried steam with him and I even went to the pharmacy and begged them to sell me amoxicillin (of course they wouldnt sell it to me with out a prescription). The other kittens and cats did recover but this disease has killed many more of my kittens as of today. It seems that once the cat starts coughing everything I try is in vain. If they recover before they start to cough then they come out fine but once they cough its all down hill. At first I tried getting more aggressive with the ACV treatment but it seemed to affect the kittens negatively and they died much quicker then the kittens who stopped having the ACV once they started coughing. I would recommend that if you are dealing with this do not put all your trust into ACV. It does alleviate the symptoms for my cats but the kittens are to weak and need something to fight the virus off for them. To date I have lost 5 or 6 kittens to this. I do have a FB page dedicated to my cats and kittens which I use to try and find them homes so that they will not have to live feral lives. If you would like to see videos of the kittens coughing there are some posted there. Good luck to anyone out there trying to help animals!

Help your cat with nebulizer and coupage treatment as often as possible. It is going to help your cat to cough out some phlegms and clear up the airways. There is no side-effects of this treatment so include it in your daily routines. Pour some saline solution in the nebulizer cup and allow your cat to breath in the fine mist that can reach her lungs. This can last about 5-10 minutes until the the cup is empty.

Do follow by chest percussion (coupage) using your hands. Don't heat her chest too hard but strong enough to loosen up her phlegms. Try not to allow your vet to treat her antibiotics and steroids that will hinder your cat's self defence mechanism-immune system! We and our pets all should boost our body's immune system with holistic natural herbs and healthy diets!

After loosing my cat Eliza, I learned my painful lessons. Do not trust our vets! They don't always know what is best for our babies! Good luck!
