Hi! I'm new to this forum and hoping for some good advice to help our 'adopted' cat, Bunty. She has lived with us for several years and recently I noticed a pinkness in front of her ears. Eventually they became bigger bald patches and the vet diagnosed ear mites. He injected her with something, applied something against fleas to her skin, and gave us drops for her ears. Since then she has gone slowly downhill and is now lying in her bed not wanting to go too far except close to a radiator. The fur is scratched from her head from ears to nose, her eyes are held half closed, there are scabs on the bared flesh and even on the inside of her front legs which she uses to wipe and scratch at her head some of the fur has been rubbed off to expose raw flesh. She just seems so poorly but because it was only last Thursday that she saw the vet I was waiting for a while to see if her condition would improve. In the tufts of fur she pulls out I notice small white seed-like things. Can anyone advise me please.
