Yeast Infection - cat

My poor kitty got a yeast infection that was becoming very noticeable because she started head shaking, scratching, and had a clicking sound when moving her ears around. I took her to the vet yesterday and she is on Tresaderm - twice daily for 10 days. They said the ear mites are gone completely fortunately - I used Acarexx for that.

I do not know much about yeast infections to be honest, only about ear mites and ear infections. I am a little worried as my kitty has been sleeping a lot, not purring as often as usual, and still shaking her ears (although I know it will take a few days for relief to come.) She did have a full physical examination, so I am sure it is just the yeast infection. She is still eating and drinking plenty, and sleeping on my computer desk right now. I am just happy I got her in yesterday into a vet clinic that is open 24/7.

Celia had one a couple of months ago. She was so miserable that she wasn't eating, and she wasn't sleeping well. She wasn't drinking water either, which then made her constipated. I usually use Zymox when she has itchy ears, but the vet gave me something called MalAcetic Ultra. I put drops in both ears for 7 days, but I can tell you that she got relief in less than 24 hours. My theory is that due to the yeast infection, she was getting popping in her ears when she opened mouth, and it was unpleasant enough that she just didn't want to open her mouth. That's why she was only licking at wet food. And she wasn't drinking water, even though she's normally a good drinker.

I'm not familiar with Tresaderm or Acarexx, so I don't know if they work differently. But I can definitely tell you that the MalAcetic worked wonders.
