Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
This scratching could cause an infection and when it becomes chronic, there is more scar tissue that causes this chronicity to continue. I have used Swimmers Ear, available at the pharmacy over the counter, which dries out the ear so the bacteris and other organisms such as a yeast to not be able to grow. Try using this every 12 hrs and massage this down and wipe out the excess. This may help to keep this under control but may not be able to be curative due to the chronic nature of this injury.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
