Many cat owners overlook the importance of caring for their cats ears. Whilst it is not a case of not wanting to care for the cat, many owners are worried that they will hurt them and so are actually afraid to carry out the cleaning process. As a result of their owners being scared to carry out a regular cleaning process, cats are often bought into veterinary surgeries with severe infections or mites in the ears. These problems are ones that could have been treated early had they been caught earlier.
Here at Vet Medic we recommend to our customers that a good routine ear care process is put in place. It can be very safe and consists of a simple weekly inspection as well as a clean if required. Cats that do not have their ears checked have been found to suffer from a range of problems and infections, such as: ear mites; bacterial infections; yeast infections; allergies; and fungal infections on the ear tips.
There are right ways and wrong ways to inspect your cat’s ears and whilst it may not be the most comfortable of processes, most cats will tolerate routine ear cleanings well. At Vet Medic, we offer our customers a wide and varied range of cat ear cleaners which will help make the process easier for both you and your cat. These cleaners will help to maintain a healthy ear canal whilst protecting your cat from nasty infections. Any cat owner who requires additional information on cat ear cleaners or would like some advice can find a bounty of information on the website. Alternatively, contact a member of our team who will be happy to help.
