I have a 5-year-old female cat that is continuously scratching around the ears with a lot of head shaking involved. It seems she is trying to dislodge something; it also appears to me that the problem is inside the ear. It has gotten so bad that she has started to lose the hair around the area. I am not in a financial position to take her to the vet and would greatly appreciate it if you can recommend a medication that might help? I know it is hard to prescribe without knowing exactly what the problem is, but perhaps there is a general medication that would help a variety of ear infections/conditions?
You can purchase any over the counter ear cleaner. Try one that kills ear mites as well. I am not suggesting that it will work but I can not see how it will hurt. Your vet should really examine your pet. vetcare
