Cats Ear infection – Symptoms, Prevention & Treatment

by Aapex Pet Pharmacy | July 17, 2018 | Pet Infections

Human beings and animals both are the creation of God but have different attributes as human beings can speak whereas animals cannot. Since animals cannot speak, they cannot share their problems and pain. However, there are specific disease related symptoms, which can help a pet owner to recognize the disease his/her pet is suffering from and take the right course of pet medications.

Though pet animals stay at home, they still easily catch different infections. Cats and dogs are the cutest and lovable pet animals. Common symptoms of ear infection in cats are:

  • Scratching
  • Head shaking
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of balance
  • Strong odor from the ears
  • Hearing loss
  • Redness of the ear flap with or without swelling
  • Yellow or brown discharge in the ear

How to Treat Ear Infections in Cats?

If a veterinarian determines a bacterial infection he/she advises a parasitic, antifungal ointment or a medicated ear drop. In case the ear drum is fine but the infection has extended to the middle ear, oral or injectable antibiotics are the possible treatment. To begin with the treatment, the vet might clip the fur around the cat’s ear canal in order to clean and dry the ear canal.

You can help your pussy recover with just a little care. Check your cat’s ear at home to see if the inside ear flap is pink and clear. If the vet has prescribed an ear drop for a cat infection then gently lift the ear flap and squeeze the solution into the ear canal. Gently massage the base of your cat’s ear to help the medicine work effectively.
