Can I treat my cat's ear mites myself?
I am pretty sure my cat has ear mites but my vet did not treat them. Can I treat the cat myself without spending hundreds more?
About a week ago, I noticed that my cat had brown debris in his ears. We took him to the vet with suspicions of ear mites
. They said that it wasn't mites, nor was it an infection, but probably dirt because he had been a stray recently.
They cleaned his ears (for $150) and said he was all set. Now I am noticing that the brown debris is back and I am pretty positive it is ear mites.
Do I need to bring my cat back to the vet or is it safe to buy the ear mite drops at the store and save myself a great deal of money?
I obviously will spend the money if I need to for him, but if it is safely avoidable I would really like to know. Just can't call the vet to ask because they will tell me to come in no matter what. THANK YOU so much.
