You can easily tell if your cat is suffering from ear mites. The
outer ear may be inflamed and the cat will flatten his ears against
his head, scratch at them and shake is his as if trying to dislodge
something in his ear.
Gently hold open the ear so you can take a peek into his ear canal.
Hold the tip of the ear between your thumb and forefinger and gently
roll it outward to reveal the inner part of the ear. Don't pull too
hard. After all, you're not trying to lengthen the ear.
If you see gobs of dirt and ear wax that look like a wad of
coffee grounds, you need to treat your cat for ear mites.
Treatment usually includes a thorough cleaning by a veterinarian
followed by an antibiotic topical treatment or injection. This
medication kills the mites.
Unfortunately, these blood suckers can and will reappear without
preventative treatment. Since prolonged use of antibiotics is
inappropriate consider using a
natural remedy to prevent ear mites from relocating to your
cat's ears. Often, conventional medicine often just treats just the
symptoms of a disorder. Natural medicine strives to
create a holistic balance in the body to relieve ailments
and help prevent future disease.
