Default Apple Cider Vinegar

Do you use it as a regular therapy for your Bird's ? If not, why not ?

Being fairly opinionated at time's, especially when I feel something has become obvious to me, I will share my opinion.

I read the benefit's of using ACV here at talk budgies not long after I joined. My girl's had just gotten over an infection, and besides deciding to give probiotics on a fairly regular basis, I was looking for anything else I could do to help my babies maintain their health. That is when I came across this...

https://talkbudgies.com/holistic-natu...r-vinegar.html

After reading this article I did some other general info searching on this topic, and ever since, I have given my bird's ACV in their water every third day in the dose suggested in the sticky, 1/4 tsp per 4 oz of water. That will be 2 years ago in march, and I really believe that the use of ACV has played a big role in my bird's staying healthy since then. It is natural, inexpensive, easy to administer, and the jury is in when it comes to fact that it is beneficial. When I took my new tiel to the avian vet a couple month's back, he asked me if I used it, and said he takes it himself, and highly recommend's it for all his bird patient's. Here is what I use....

This is wonderful research Randy. I didn't no you could use Apple Cider Vinegar for our budgies. I'm going to read about your link you have just posted very interesting ill have to ask my avian vet about this to see if he uses it. Just read the link that Deb did she did a lot of very good research.

I too use ACV, though I am a little less exact in my measurements. Not sure if it helps the birds or not but it certainly isn't doing them any harm. I believe the chicks are all growing up nice and healthy if that is any indicator.

A great reminder Randy as here in Australia it is the hot and humid weather, this is when those horrible crop infections can occur more commonly Apple Cider Vinegar is a great tool to help combat these nasties.

Thank you for reminding me to this - I recently bought some at the supermarket because it was on special and I thought I'd give it a try on my lot. Of course, since putting it in the bottom of the pantry, I'd completely forgotten about it!

Yes, it is supposed to be very effective in helping with killing off bacteria that causes crop infection, not to mention health for the digestive track. The avian vet told me he takes it himself because it is highly effective at helping our body metabolize/burn stomach fat.......

Good Kelly...your bird's will benefit, now that you remember you have it...

I have been using "the Mother" for some time now and I think it keeps them healthy, too.

Me too! If you aren't sure if it does anything try it out yourself. It's better than energy drinks and of course all natural.
