Dear Rae:

Dilute vinegar won't hurt. It probably doesn't taste too great to
most popel and/or ferrets, but it won't hurt.

I remember when I was a child in Atlanta, we had an older gentleman
who would do yard work, etc on an intermittent basis. Whenever he
would cut himself, or bang his thumb with a hammer, or any type of
trauma, he would drink a small glass of vinegar. I don't think it
ever helped, but he did live to a ripe old age. (Pickled, perhaps.)

With kindest regards,

Bruce H. Williams, DVM, DACVP
