Ear Infections In Kitties

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A long tale....
When I got my kitties the vet said they had ear mites and he washed out thier ears and applied a med. Well the kitties ears kept getting junkie. I returned to the vet twice with one kitty and once with the other. Each time the vet did the same thing (he only charged me one time).

I kinda got fed up with htis because it was hard to hold the kitties down every day to clean their ears. On this site I heard about different things about treating ear mites. My vet didn't give me any meds to take home to put in thier ears.

I brought my kitties in this afternoon to a different vet for a second opinion. The good news is the kittens don't have mites but do have ear infections. (The first vet didn't mention this as a possibility.) So now I have to put drops in twice a day and totally clean out thier ears every other day.

I feel bad for the kitties. Has any one else ever gone through this?
I should mention the kitties are being great about this!

I know that untreated ear mites leads to ear infection.
Anyway, happy to hear your babies are gettting the right treatment.

That happened with Crystal. She wound up with infected ears from mites and I used the drops for a week and her ears are fine now.
What really got me angry was that we had taken her to the vet a while before that but I didn't get her regular vet and this one said it was just ear wax!
