My Himalayan has pinkish red around her eyes and back of one

Customer Question

My Himalayan has pinkish red around her eyes and back of one ear with some hair loss on the ear.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Cat's name is ***** ***** she is 5 years old. We just moved her from California to Hawaii in July.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Milani?
Customer: She tends to be scratching her ear quite often lately.
