If it's ear mites--- it looks kind of like coffee grounds in the ear.

My one cat's ears look "dirty" quite often. The vet didn't know why. Said maybe an allergy? What does the yeast look like?

Hey guys!

Took Jonesy to the vet yesterday. Here's what he told me to do for future info.

Make sure to clean the ears out thoroughly, but NOT with a Qtip because this usually just pushes the "gunk" deeper into the ear. You can use a small amount of dishwashing liquid mixed with water, just a dab and warm water.

He said to get Milbemite. It is for ear mites in cats and can be found online or maybe at local pet stores. Normally if you get the ears cleaned well, it only takes one application of the Milbemite to get rid of them.

Also, I thought this was interesting. For any of you who use Revolution heart worm treatment... this also gets rid of ear mites and staves off several types of other worms along with fleas AND is a deterent to mosquitos.

Just passing on the info!

Candace

I usually have used a big cotton ball saturated with the peroxide and just gently swab the ear out...but you can also dip the q-tip in the peroxide and do the same.....it is just easier doing it with the cotton ball and not so scary for your fur baby!

I have used peroxide before.....on a cotton ball and gently wipe the ear with it...I think I did it 2x a day......this was years ago! The vet may have something for you or check a pet store....vets charge and arm and a leg for their "stuff"!!!!!

I would think olive oil or glycerine would be good and soothing but I'd check with a vet or online.

I'd be afraid to use peroxide. I think there are some over the counter stuff in the grocery stores or like PetsMart that you can use until you see the vet. I've always just gone to the vet.

My vet always checks for ear mites, so if you are taking her to the vet he will probably check for ear mites as a part of a routine checkup. They will wash her ears out and if necessary give you something to use once you get her home. Glad you have a new kitty. They are such a joy. I have 6 of my own, and they are precious (most of the time...LOL).

Hey guys, quick question for you. The new rescue kitty that I have has started scratching her ears a lot and I've started to notice some black "gunk" forming inside. I cleaned them out last night and am going to try and take her to the vet tomorrow morning.

Is there something that I can buy that will treat this? I'm assuming that it is ear mites.

Thanks so much!
Candace
