Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi I'm Dr. Carole and I'm a small animal veterinarian. I'm sorry to hear about Scootch. I would be worried about ear mites and would recommend treating with a product called Revolution. It works great for ear mites in cats. The other concern would be an ear infection with yeast or bacteria and that needs to be treated with ear drops. The vet will do what is called a ear cytology where they take some of the ear debris/wax and roll it on a glass microscope slide and look under the microscope for any possible infections.
