I went to the pet store to buy several ear washing solutions. I feel that there is not much difference between domestic and foreign ear washing solutions. Maybe my cat is not honest. I feel that the process of ear washing is uncomfortable for him. The process is to first drop a few drops of ear washing liquid into the ear, do not let the cat shake its head, but quickly and gently rub the root of the ear, and then let the cat shake its head. After wetting the cotton swab with the ear washing liquid, wipe the ear canal (use a soft cotton swab, not too deep into the ear canal)
There are a lot of drugs on the Internet for the treatment of cat ear mites. You can buy them online and apply them to the cat’s ears for several times in a row. My cat is like this. I don’t need injections.
But because it’s a stray cat, we should pay attention to the internal and external repellent, and there are also drugs on the Internet. In addition to insects in Bayer, there are mainly fleas in vitro, and many drugs are easy to use.
There are also many videos on the Internet that teach how to feed. There are also some people selling helping medicine sticks, but my cat doesn’t like feeding sticks.
It’s ear mites that don’t infect people
Treatment of ear mites for cats
Pure oil (1 ml, cotton needle tube)
Medicine: the medicine for ear mites
Principle: cleaning + treatment
1. Clean the cat’s ears thoroughly with a cotton swab stained with grease and wipe off all dirt.
Specific operation: hold the cat in your arms, gently turn the outside of the ear, buckle it on the head, and the ear canal will be exposed. Use a cotton swab to wipe off the dirt in the external ear and ear canal. Note that the cotton swab should be inserted into the ear canal about 1cm. The technique must be light. Be careful. Wipe according to the wrinkles in the ear canal of the cat. Do not stab it rigidly, so as to avoid pain and injury to the cat. And pay attention to the action of the cat, must be relatively stable in the cat wipe.
Tip: the oil can dissolve the dirt in the cat’s ear canal and make it easier to wipe. At the same time, its ingredients can also play a role in the care of the ear canal skin.
2. After wiping clean, use a needle tube to absorb a certain amount of therapeutic liquid (about 0.2-0.3 mm), and drop it into the cat’s ear canal.
Note: hold the cat’s head with your hand and don’t let her shake it. Stop for a few seconds and allow the lotion to flow deep into the ear canal. Turn the ear back, pinch the outside of the ear with your fingers, and gently rub the root of the ear to help the ear lotion work better.
3. Wash the other ear the same way. Then you can let go of the cat. Be careful not to let the cat scratch its ears or lick the liquid medicine.
In this way, the cat can recover after 2 weeks (once a day).
1. Before treatment, the cat must be tested for ear mites. A fungus can also grow in the ear canal, producing almost the same dirt as an ear mite. Only after diagnosis can symptomatic treatment be effective.
2. Ear mites are parasites that can infect cats living together. During the treatment, pay special attention to whether other cats in the family are also infected with ear mites. For families with conditions, isolation treatment is recommended.
3. Ear mites do not infect people. Cat owners don’t have to worry about being infected.
How to know that Mimi has ear mites? (Original: Mary)
Ear mite is a common problem in cats. Most cats have had it, but as long as you insist on wiping it, it can be cured in about two weeks. If you consolidate it from time to time, there will be no more problems.
If possible, you can ask the doctor to wash his ear canal once, because the doctor may wash the deep part of his ear canal, and he may not be able to do it himself:) then he must learn to wash Mimi himself. He washes it gently, and Mimi is easy to accept. Must learn to wash themselves, this is the most basic daily care of Mimi, but can not be lazy Oh!
Look for a place with good light and turn Mimi’s ears over. Is there more reddish brown stuff in the ear canal? Look inside with a cotton swab to see if there is more reddish brown liquid on it? Do you have dark reddish brown knots? If you twist it by hand, the small pieces are not easy to be even (if it is mud, it is easy to be even).
Look for a magnifying glass (just read the newspaper) and carefully observe the reddish brown areas in the cat’s ears. There are red brown aphid like insects crawling, which is the ear mite.
In addition to cleaning the ear canal, ear washing liquid can also reduce inflammation and prevent / treat otitis media caused by ear mites. Ear oil is insecticidal, but toxic. Don’t let the cat lick it.
I don’t recommend antibiotics, or topical drugs do less harm to cats.
¡¤Black mud and ear mites
First of all: the colors are different. Ear mites are dark brown. If you look closely, you can see brown or light brown ear mites (with a magnifying glass).
Secondly, the character of dirt is different. Cats with ear mites secrete a lot of brown bodies similar to grease. Ear mite scales are irregular flakes and stick to the cat’s ears. If it’s mud, first, it should be evenly distributed, not one by one. Second: there should be no large amount of brown liquid secretions.
Third, the sense of touch is different. Take a small piece of earwax (if you like) and twist it with your fingers. The mud is easy to twist and feel fine. Ear mite scale is rough and hard to twist.
Experience in the treatment of cat ear mites
It is best to go to the pet hospital to buy a complete set of ear mite medicine, including ear mite oil and ear washing liquid (can not use only one kind of ah!). It would be better if you could have your cat’s ears cleaned thoroughly by a doctor.
If it is imported medicine, a bottle of ear drops + a bottle of ear washing liquid = 130 yuan. Of course, there are also domestic ones, which are much cheaper, but the ear oil sticks to the human skin and pricks. I don’t know what will happen to the cat.
Ear mites are very annoying and easy to repeat. You have to be patient!
A secret collection of killing ear mites, handed down from Japan (Original: xiaohuji)
It is the refined boric acid powder and cotton swab, which is cleaned with cotton swab and sprinkled with boric acid powder. It is non-toxic and has no side effects. It is especially suitable for kittens and weak cats, as well as dogs. Better not use organic pesticides!
Home treatment of otomites (Original: Lucky Cindy)
My baby went to the hospital because of ear mites. It’s true that my baby didn’t get cured. My formula worked very well. As follows:
1. Wipe internal and external auditory canal with sterile cotton swab dipped with medical hydrogen peroxide
2. Wipe until there is no color of secretions, and dry slightly.
3. Add 2-3 drops of nitroglycerin ear drops, cover the ear and rub gently. After release, the baby will shake his head and throw out the dirty things.
4. Wipe the dirty things with a paper towel and apply it with dermatitis.
If it’s not too serious, it should be no more than 4 days:)
