I use the Advocate as well, it is a Prescription On Medication, (POM), relatively expensive, BUT, it does heartworm, earmites, parasitic mange, fleas, ticks and other worms as well and then a three monthly dose of Milbumax takes care of any other nasties. In my opinion well worth the expense.

PS. It is also a lot easier to put a pipette of stuff on the back of the neck than it is to hold/wrap a cat still to administer the ear drops and then hold the cat on spread newspaper while your cat shakes and scratches his ears while you are trying to rub it down the ear canal and loads of brown earwax flies out in all directions. :sick:

Advocate spot-on treats ear mites among other nasties

I'm with Liz on this one - it's a typical time of year for ear mites, and they're best promptly treated.  Poor Butter.  Sending  gentle chin tickle for him.   :catlove2:

Personally no it may be ear mites so really should go to the vet to have them checked out

Can anyone  tell me if any of these ear drops are good to use please, Butter seems to be scratching and shaking his just lately.  I can't see anything in his ear so it must be a build of ear wax. Thanks
