I am a cat owner. My cat has been having some brownish flaky, sometimes waxy, substance from his ears. Last week, i cleaned his right ear with a Q-tip. It started discharging fluid. At first, it was dark brown and smelled like the substance i removed from his ear. I also noticed that my cat seemed a bit lethargic and warmer to the touch than usual. Now, the discharge has lessened and turned into very light brown to colorless watery fluid. And my cat is back to his old playful self. A friend gave me Zema Ear Miticides for Dogs and Cats, because he said my cat might have ear mites. Is he right? Should i use the product on my cat?
Your pet should be seen by a vet for this problem. I would not use any medication unless your vet said it was ok. This may not be an ear mite infection. Your vet can help determine what the cause is. vetcare
