Poor kitty. It seems suspect to me that it is spreading to the other ear, and that three vet visits come up with the same solution....antibiotics.

My Otis had a crusty ear that was determined to be an infection. The vet cleaned off the crustiness and gave him an antibiotic shot (no need to pill him). It sounds like you've tried that route already. Can you clean off that crustiness, or is it part of the ear itself? Maybe you don't want to mess with him too much. He sounds stressed out.

UPDATE: got biopsy results back and he has pemphigus foliaceus. It's is starting to affect his feet which is why he had been peeing everywhere but the box cause it hurts his feet. So we have an appointment tomorrow morning to start treatment.

Oh goodness. I've never heard of it, but it sounds painful. I hope the treatment goes well!

Akram01, I don't know if you've already been to this website, but I looked up pemphigus and on this page, there's a link to a handout on it for pet owners: http://veterinarymedicine.dvm360.com...date=&pageID=5

This article also has some good information: http://www.2ndchance.info/pawlickcat-Angus2005.pdf

I have been reading up on it a lot in the last 2 days. I have seen the first one you posted but not the second one. I will have to read up on it more. Thanks for the links.
