APPLE CIDER VINEGAR FOR YOUR HORSE (everyone uses Bragg because it is the most pure with the ‘mother’ ingredient.)

Excerpt from article on About Frugal Living website:

Vinegar for Horses
Pets and Animals Tip
From Pat Veretto, Your Guide to Frugal Living.

Using vinegar to keep your horse healthy and comfortable

Vinegar contains nutrients needed for horses and other animals as well as humans and according to “Apple Vinegar”.com, “No known pathogens can survive in raw apple vinegar.”

As a feed additive and an external grooming aid, the cost of apple cider vinegar can’t be beat.

A reader wrote this: “I feed vinegar to my horses to keep the flies away. I pour 1/4 cup of cider vinegar on their grain once a day and it really keeps the flies away from them! They seem to like it, too.”

Then another one added this:

” Add approximately 5 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to your horse’s oats morning and evening to dramatically reduce fly bites. We have a Quarterhorse who was literally covered in welts from fly bites. After starting on the vinegar, the bites disappeared and were kept under control for the remainder of the season.”

And yet another reader said this:

“For reducing swelling on a horse (or any animal), wrap the leg in a rag soaked in apple cider vinegar. Wrap in plastic and then bandage to hold it in place – leave on for 4 or more hours. And, finally: Vinegar in the horse feed is also said help with breathing problems.”

Testimonial from Desiree Dautreuil — Champion Barrel Horse Racer — Lafayette, LA

I feed Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar to my three barrel racing horses. It has nutritional benefits, it helps with their arthritis and digestiion. I dont even buy equine supplements any more… just get a gallon of BRAGG ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. it works on them from the inside out. Thank you so much for this GREAT product!

Apple Cider Vinegar: Holistic Healing for Cats

In researching holistic care for cats, there are a few remedies that come up over and over again. One of these is apple cider vinegar – something I use to treat bladder infection in my own body. From what I’ve seen, apple cider vinegar is effective in treating a number of ailments in cats; bladder blockages and infections, ear infections, mange, fleas, mites, ringworm, upper respiratory problems, and more. Always dilute apple cider vinegar when using it with cats!

Important Note: If your cat is showing signs of illness, it is important to take them to your veterinarian to make sure you get a correct diagnosis.  Once you know for sure what is wrong with your cat, then decide whether you will use a holistic or pharmaceutical treatment.

Using Apple Cider Vinegar Internally

When ingested, apple cider vinegar helps to create an acidic environment in the digestive tract. This breaks up bladder crystals and kills harmful bacteria. Taking apple cider vinegar internally is a remedy for bladder blockages, bladder infections, respiratory infections, and other illnesses caused by bacteria. Along with using apple cider vinegar, cats which normally eat dry food should be switched to wet food and up their moisture intake.

Adding apple cider vinegar to cat food

1/4 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 teaspoon chicken broth, 1 can of wet cat food

  • Mix 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar with 1 teaspoon of chicken broth (I’ve heard tuna juice also works)
  • Add the mixture to the cat’s wet food.
  • Repeat this treatment at every feeding until the cat’s symptoms improve (within a few days).

Adding apple cider vinegar to the cat’s water

2 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup of Water

  • Mix 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water
  • Dip the cat’s paw into the mixture and allow them to lick it off. It isn’t necessary for the cat to drink the entire mixture. Just getting some of it in them will help.
  • Repeat a few times daily until symptoms improve.

Applying Apple Cider Vinegar Topically

Parasites are not fond of apple cider vinegar’s acidity. Applying a hearty apple cider vinegar mixture to your cat topically can kill fleas, mites, and ringworm. This mixture can also clean their skin thoroughly, removing allergens that cause acne and itching. Please note: the acid in apple cider vinegar can be abrasive to a cat’s tender skin, so be sure to dilute it. Young or sensitive cats may need a more diluted mix.

Cleaning your cat’s ears

  • Mix warm water and apple cider vinegar
  • Dunk a paper towel in the mixture
  • Squeeze out the liquid into your cat’s ear. You may want to hold another paper towel to the side of your cat’s head to keep the liquid from dripping down.
  • Repeat until the ear is sufficiently clean.

Apple Cider Vinegar Mange Treatment

  • Bathe the cat and use shampoo.
  • Rinse using a warm water and apple cider vinegar mix.
  • Towel dry the cat (make sure they stay warm).
  • Gently scrub the cat’s body with a soft bristled tool, such as a toothbrush. This is to remove any of the mange you’ve just killed.
  • Lather the cat with castor oil or olive oil to suffocate the mange even further.

Apple Cider Vinegar Rub

Dilute Apple Cider Vinegar with water and apply with paper towel.  Use this technique to treat allergy skin, acne, fleas, and ringworm. If allergies are the problem, also try switching to ceramic or stainless steel food dishes as well as changing to a scent free/low dust cat litter.

  • Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 part water (dilute this more if necessary).
  • Dip a paper towel in the mixture.
  • Rub the damp paper towel over your cat’s skin and fur. It is okay if they lick it off. As stated above, cats and ingest apple cider vinegar without any problems.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Livestock

From the Northeast Organic Dairy Producers Alliance website: 80% of the energy needs of a ruminant (cows, sheep, etc) should come from the production of volatile fatty acids (VFA’s). Acetic, proprionic, and butyric are the three primary VFA’s. For dairy animals, 50-60% of these VFA’s need to be acetic acid (aka vinegar).
