Default Apple cider vinegar

I didnt want to hijack the other thread so I am asking in a new one. I have been using organic apple cider vinegar for about 5 years now. I used to have heartburn severly for 4-5 days a week. since I have been using the vinegar I have not had heartburn. Last year I went throuhg a 2 month period with out using it and the heartburn started coming back. so now I make sure to use it regularly.
So...... Do you think it can be used as a regular ingredient in water for birds as kind of a preventative means? Has it ever been studied for birds? What ever the "mother" is, it is surely something special from mother nature.


Rick

Hi, Rick!

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) with the "mother" means that the vinegar is "raw and unfiltered".
As such, it contains the "mother: which occurs naturally as connected strand-like chains of protein enzyme molecules.

Many medical studies have shown the health benefits of using Organic ACV with the mother.

I'd suggest giving it to your budgies in their water regularly two or three times a week.
The recommended formula is: 1/4 teaspoon per 4 oz of water.

There have been studies done with regard to the benefits of ACV for birds.

We spoke to our avian vet about this recently and she seemed to indicate that apple cider vinegar is definitely something that can be added to the drinking water as it has numerous health benefits. She suggested giving it to them for a few days but then taking a couple of days off from it. I don't recall the reason why she suggested giving it a break every so often, but that's what we do with our little budgies.

I don't understand use of the term 'mother' in Faery's post? We've been using 'all natural' ACV, 2 or 3 "drops" at most, in about 2 or 3 ounce sized glass of water.

EDIT: I now realize the use relative to organic ACV. I've found some available for shipment from Amazon's site. Thinking of buying some.

I have always used ACV, For the Budgies and other aviary birds I give no more than once or twice a week depending on weather conditions etc.

For poultry that we rear, it is always in the water for chicks and once they are fully feathered and living outside we cut it down again to once or twice a week.

I read that it can control the development of fungus in the birds system. It's acid so I guess it helps by acidifying their system. I know you all knew that though. Just wanted to say something, lol.

Hmm, what sort of weather conditions would make it not ideal to use AVC?

It's more a personal choice tbh, I don't use it in really cold snow weather as I add other things to the water to help prevent it freezing.
