I think Arwen has got ear mites. For a feral, her ears have always been pretty clean, but she has been scratching them and I can see some crusties in there...but not too many. I recently put Revolution on her, and plan to keep it on her through the summer, and I know it is supposed to help with ear mites, but I'm not sure if it's enough to get those things that are down in her ears. I have heard that swabbing her ears with mineral oil, or some type of oil will smother them, I'm afraid I may lose a finger or get a nasty bite if I try to do that to her. She will let me rub her ears, but I'm thinking she would freak if she saw me coming at her with a cotton ball....but maybe if she were eating something tasty I could do it quickly.
I just wanted to ask about the oil thing, I don't think I have mineral oil, but I do have olive oil, would that work? Or any other suggestions? They don't seem really bad, but I don't want them to get worse. And will the Revolution keep them at bay if I get hear ears treated up now?
