Lesions by parasitic organisms often appear in domestic animals. Similar diseases include otodectosis - this is the presence of an ear mite in cats. A characteristic sign is intense itching (the animal furiously scratches its ears and shakes its head at the same time). Observe a dark brown discharge from the ear with an unpleasant odor. Constant scratching leads to scabs, hair loss and bald patches.
See your veterinarian immediately. The clinic will conduct appropriate studies for the presence of this pathogen in a cat and determine the desired treatment complex. The diagnosis can be made by yourself. To do this, take some sulfur from your pet's ear with a cotton swab, then examine the contents under a microscope (use a dark background). Ear mites will be active white pinhead specks.
In order to avoid the spread of harmful parasites on the body of the cat, treat the animal with an insecticide, for example, use Fipronil for this. This drug kills mites on the surface of the body.
Use cotton swabs to constantly remove accumulated discharge. Treat the ears with drops that are harmful to the tick and are designed to be injected into the ears, for example, "Anandin +" and "Tsipam". The well-known drug "Frontline" can also be used to remove a harmful parasite. It contains the substance fipronil, which kills not only ticks, but also fleas.
To get rid of a cat's ear mite, use the Ivomek remedy with a wide range of effects. This drug is made in the form of injection liquid and drops. The course of treatment for an ear mite in a cat is 28 days, since the eggs of these parasitic organisms cannot be destroyed by drugs. We'll have to wait until the ear mite larvae emerge from the egg so that they can be destroyed. During all this time, treatment is required.
Use regular vegetable oil. Chop a few cloves of garlic and then crush and add to the oil, leave overnight. Clean the animal's ears well. Place 5 drops in both ears. As a preventive measure, do not forget about the hygiene of your beloved pet, regularly check and clean your ears using specialized hygienic drops "Bars". Treat the animal quarterly (once every six months) against ticks and fleas with insecticides (Advantiks, etc.).
