Fluid in Cats Ears

Category Health

My cat seams happy and content, she sleeps above my pillow everynight. My husband always rubbs her head when he gets into bed. Lately he noticed she shakes her head when he does it and there is a lot of fluid in her ears, some actually comes out. Does anyone have any feedback on this?

This same thing was happening with my cat who seemed otherwise contented. I would find big drops on the tile floor that looked almost like someone had dripped coffee. Then I noticed my cat shaking her head and I felt drops. Took her to the vet and found out she had a bad infestation of ear mites, even though she was an indoor cat and never went outside. The vet was able to give her a one-time treatment in the office that worked very well. Best wishes to you -- pw.

same thing happened with mine. If there is dark wax in the ears it is probably ear mites. Opt for the one time medication from the vet rather than the continous drops. The one time is much easier and more effective

Catch this now before inner ear infection happens. This cleaner also removes moisture from ears that cause infections. Go to Walmart or Kmart in the animal section. They have a great cat/dog ear cleaner that cleans, kills mites and takes out any moisture that could cause inner ear infections. Its about 3 dollars a bottle. Put about 4-5 drops inside ears and then rub well. If they are super dirty very gently rub with a damp wash cloth then use ear cleaner.

We all know what it feels like to have ear infections and they cannot tell us. If this still happens after a couple of days get her to a vet or local humane society which is very reasonable and get her ears checked please.

Now is the time to begin working with an integrative veterinarian and also learning 100% safe (usually not OTC chemical products) ways you can build health at home (Reiki, flower essences, acupressure, Tellington T touch, Healing Touch for Animals...).

The squishy fluid would be cultured by a conventional veterinary clinic, then the matching antibiotic would be given, sometimes for weeks or months. though the ear may get better, the cat's overall health would not be improved, so the best would be to re-balance the energy field.

An integrative veterinarian is a person trained in many different approaches, including using conventional drugs only when absolutely needed. Working with one can increase the chance that your cherished companion can live a long and healthy life after recovering from this current ear problem. There are good ones and great ones, and a few homeopathic veterinarians will consult by phone or email. You can go to the web sites for each type of holistic practice and use their referral list to find one near to you. Many practitioners are members of only one or two of the organizations, so you do need to go to every site to find who is near you:

1. Wide range of treatments:, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and

2. Homeopathic veterinarians (these can often help you by phone if no other holistic practitioners are nearby that you like): and;

3. Chiropractic and Osteopathic -; (they treat dogs, too)

4. TCVM (Acupuncture and Chinese medicine):, &

5. Herbal -

As you learn more about the holistic approaches (common sense, mostly) you will save a lot of money and maybe your cat will live to past 30 ( and An austin man who had 2 cats live to 34 and 38.
