Ear mites in cats: agents for treatment

Ear mites are very uncomfortable for cats. The small parasites cause severe itching and can cause inflammation and coordination problems. In order to prevent the annoying ear mite and to control it, various means are commercially available. Symptoms of an ear mite infestation should be clarified with the veterinarian - Image: Shutterstock / Hasloo Group Production Studio

Anyone suspected of ear mite infestation in their cat should be vigilant if they experience symptoms such as shaking their heads, tilting their heads, folding their ears or observing frequent scratching in the ear region. A veterinarian can give certainty about a possible illness and explain the necessary treatment steps. Certain cats have an increased risk of ear mite infestation. These include strays, free-range animals and cats that have been in contact with other infected animals. After consultation with your veterinarian, you can treat these animals with various ear cleansing agents that can be purchased in stores or online. We would like to present some of these funds to you here.

    AndreaVRupp: I have already tried Anibio, Beaphar and cdVet, several times and even the much-praised Stronghold. In the meantime, I take virgin, cold-pressed organic coconut oil and only treat the ear from the outside and the external auditory canal, since the mites cannot tolerate the lauric acid of the coconut oil. However, I still have to deal with the consequences of the mites and that requires patience, which is worthwhile because the cat no longer scratches itself so terribly. Report abuse
