The doctor was sure it was not ear mites. And the breeder's cats are all fine.
The first round of antibiotics worked great, now after a week she has some gooo, just a bit, I called the doctor and discussed it with him again.... he said after she is finished this perscription, he is going to put her on a different antibiotic.
If after all this is done, Ginger still has issues, I am going to insist on a culture, if he won't do it, I'll go to another vet.
She has been with us two months and I have spent 325.00 on this one issue alone
Besides a bit of scratching (not alot) she seems fine, eates great, plays and has lots of energy, she does not know she has an ear issue.
Should I try the diluted apple cider viniger? would it hurt? and when you say "flush" out the ear, what exactly does that mean? Will q-tips work? not too deep? the discharge comes from one perticular spot, the vet has looked closely into the ear and he says he can't see a reason for all this.
Initially I thought it was mites, I used the mite solution for 4 days prior to our doctors appointment, the solution did not seem to help at all, of course after seeing the vet he told me it was not mites.
Is yeast caused by food? She currently eats Imas (dry) and fancy feast just a little daily. When all this started she was on "maxx" cat food, but she did not like it.
Any other suggestions, this has been very informative.
