Ear Mites Can Be a Menace to Your Cat

Ear Miles are tiny parasites, they are small enough to fit on the head of a pin. These parasites incubate and grow inside the canals of your cats ears. They are like fleas in that they are extremely itchy which causes your cat to constantly shake his head and scratch his ears. If your cats ears are full of mites, they may give off a foul smell. Your may see brownish black spots resembling coffee grounds in the ears.

Ear Mites are very common and can spread easily from cat to cat.  The good news is that mites are easy to treat. Visit your vet and he’ll flush and clean your cats ears. Your cats tail will also be cleaned as mites can migrate to a cats tail area.  Your vet will administer ear drops and in a few days, your cat will feel as good as new!

Remember, your pets count!
