Ear Care for Your Cat- CLICK HERE!

Have you ever considered that the reason why your pets don't listen might be because you haven't cleaned their ears? Although the former is not correct rational, checking and cleaning your cat's ears does insure they are in good health. Cats can develop painful ear infections or ear mites, so a brief inspection can spare your cat a lot of pain.

Most of the time, your cat's ears should not need any cleaning, especially if you own multiple cats. (Cats will clean one an other's ears) If you do notice any redness, discharge, or excessive goo, its time to clean your cat's ears. Hold your cat on your lap. Squirt a medicated ear-cleaning solution into the ear canal. Massage the base of the ear to loosen debris, and use a cotton swap to gently rub the visible portion of the ear.

Ear mites are tiny parasites that suck lymph from the inner ear. Cats often scratch at them with no success and produce a black/brown material from the ear. To get rid of ear mites you will need a specific medication such as Four Paws Ear Mite Remedy for Cats. Also, be sure to check all your pets with the veterinarian if one has mites; mites spread easily.
