Re: Do you think it worked WARTS?

Hi Felicia,

Apple cider vinegar is fine for most horses however, the evidence in favor of its use is really not scientific, but rather, anecdotal. But, I have found it to help with insects and also with providing some acidification to an all forage diet.

In the case of warts, it may have helped, but more than likely, the warts went away on their own, since with time, warts will disappear.

So, bottom line... if you like using apple cider vinegar, you certainly have my blessing!

All the best,

Dr. Getty
