Customer Question

Is there anything I can do for my kitten at home to treat ear mites? He's 5 months old and scratching his right ear and holding it flat against his head.

We use Milbemite to treat ear mites in kittens/ cats. You may be able to order it online, but many prescription sites require a vet to authorize it. You may end up having to get it from a vet clinic. An alternative, would be to use Revolution topically and put a drop in each ear. That has some anti-mite activity as well.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
