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.”

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
Adding apple cider vinegar to the cat’s water
2 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup of Water
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
Apple Cider Vinegar Mange Treatment
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.

|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).

Excerpt from “Apple Cider Vinegar — Miracle Health System” book:
“Fight Fleas, Ticks, & Mites: Flea collars & sprays are toxic. Instead use vinegar. Drop tsp Bragg ACV in water bowl, dab on skin, & swab ears if mites.”
BRAGG PRODUCTS ARE HEALTHY AND THOUGHTFUL – I even like the Drink! I had no idea that there were so many apple cider vinegar products!!
Here is the Bragg website. They have TONS of products. So interesting. I love how it says LIVE foods. My grandmother always said that a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a day keeps the doctor away!
I truly had no idea there were so many Bragg products!
FUN FUN FUN! THANK YOU, BRAGG LIVE FOODS!!
WOW!! It is so rare to receive a thank you for a blogpost – what a nice company!
I’ve been using Braggs for a long time but I’ve always gotten it at the health food store. Who knew they had so many other products??!
In addition to their tips for horses, I also scrub their feed buckets and water trough (plastic Rubbermaid) with ACV, and I pour a healthy dose of it in the water trough after it’s filled.
Thanks, Dawn, this is great information! I shared it on FB and also my FB page, “The Healthier Horse.”
