If you've ever experienced any sort of ear issues you can understand how painful even the smallest problem can be. A problem of a magnitude to cause that amount of blood could be really excruciating.
get in today if you communicate to them the need.
|Is it possible that wax build up or ear mites would only happen in one ear? I have two cats and only 1 in 4 ears seem to have a problem.
That kind of points to an injury, does it not?
|I'm really hoping it's just a scratch that the kitten gave him.
A scratch would produce a thin red line of blood at the most. You can't see any cuts, say that the blood is "pretty deep in there", so a scratch from playing seems a bit unlikely. Did the adult cat cram his paw in there deep enough that a scratch would not be visible?
You can't write "my cat's ear is full of dried blood" and not expect to be sent to a veterinarian- really. Or were you exaggerating the amount of residue in the ear?
Bleeding from an ear can indicate anything from an ear infection to a skull fracture, or a perforated eardrum or a tumor. Ear problems don't just go away- they get worse. It's a long weekend, you have time today to get it examined, and Murphy's Law says if you ignore it you'll be kicking yourself.
So go in- it's the price of a dinner out and there's really no good reason not to.
