Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand you have a cat with ear mites, and you are wanting a dose of ivermectin 1% to give. Is that a correct summary of the situation?
Thank you. I was having a little trouble understanding your original text, but I think I understand the details now. Let me say that ivermectin can be given for a treatment of ear mites. However, giving it orally has not been well studied and it can cause irritation to the stomach lining. Therefore, giving it as an injection tends to work better. Some have been able to use it successfully as a drop application in the ears, which that should decrease stomach sensitivity as well.
The dose you would use is 0.12 cc per cat
