Ear disease, infections and traumas are quite common ailments, and frequently they require prescription medication. For the average person, administering these medications can be confusing and difficult. Some cats resist the medication, especially if their ears are causing them pain.

You need diligence and patience to give the medication. A technique used to administer ear medication is outlined below:

  • Have the medication container ready and the cap off.

  • Hold your cat's head still with one hand, while the other hand is used to administer the medication. Many people hold the tip of the affected ear to help hold the cat still. Be very careful not to hold the ear too firmly, which can cause even more pain. Be prepared for your cat to flinch once the medication touches the ear.

  • Hold your cat's head still with one hand, while the other hand is used to administer the medication.

  • Remove the container from the ear opening and gently rub the base of the ear to distribute the medication deeper inside the ear.
