I've heard of it, too, but I have never tried it either. For the longest time, I had mine totally on bottled water (until I read that most bottled water was just municipal tap water).

I use APPLE CIDER VINEGAR once a month and only for one night in their water bottles, but only a few small drops. I do notice that they have good poopies in the morning! After I'm done I just clean the bottle and give them fresh filter water as always.

It does clean out the system a bit. It's what a lot of people who diet use to help "cleanse the body." lol

If you will mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and two teaspoons of honey to one quart of water you will have the proper mix. We put the mix in the gliders bowl and fresh water in their bottle. Give them the mix for about three days each month and it helps eliminate the oder of urine and the gliders marking the cages. The gliders seem to like the mixture and it will not hurt them. Although the vinegar is not meant as a medication it does alter the ph of the water and will kill a certain amount of bacteria. The purpose is to aid in oder control.

WOW! It is true, you learn something new every day! Charlie, thank you for todays lesson. Even after 7+ years of gliders, I love the fact that I am still learning! Awesome!

You are so right Dancing. Everytime I check in I learn something new and very seldom have to even ask a question. There is one question with this one though - If you are mixing this up for just one suggie, how long would the rest of the mix stay good in the frig?

I don't think it would be wise to give this mixture to a young joey for the same reasons we avoid giving them antibiotics. Wait until they are six months or older.

As far as shelf life I would not keep it longer than a week and keep it refrigirated. Cut the amount of each item in half and dispose of the left overs. We have well over 50 rescues at all times so don't do many things in small quantities. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
