Apple cider vinegar is a natural treatment for cystitis in cats that works quickly in many cases. When using apple cider vinegar for health issues in people and pets, use a raw and organic apple cider vinegar.
How Do I Get My Cat to Take Apple Cider Vinegar for Cystitis?
Some cats are easy to dose with apple cider vinegar. Others take a bit of creativity. Find the least stressful way to give your cat apple cider vinegar. Stress is not helpful for any animal with a health problem, especially for a cat with cystitis. Stress can make cystitis worse.
Apple Cider Vinegar Added to the Water Bowl
The easiest thing to do is to add a capful of apple cider vinegar to your cat’s water bowl and see if he will drink his water. If he won’t, or he drinks less, try another way to deliver the apple cider vinegar. It is critical to keep a cat that is suffering with cystitis drinking as much as possible.
Apple Cider Vinegar Mixed in Food
Try mixing 1/4 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into your cat’s food twice a day.
Apple Cider Vinegar Paw Dip
Add 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to 1 teaspoon of water and dip your cat’s paws into this mixture once or twice a day. The vinegar will absorb into the body and your cat will ingest it during grooming.
Apple Cider Vinegar in a Syringe
Mix together 1/4 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 3/4 teaspoon of water. Feed this to your cat daily with a syringe. (You may wish to do this 2-3 times a day the first day or two.)
