Optimal treatment for your cat requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical. Follow-up for otitis externa often includes the following recommendations:

  • Administer prescribed medications as directed and be certain to contact your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your cat.

  • Long term maintenance cleaning may be recommended in cases of long-standing infection. Cleaning procedure can be daily or weekly depending on the rate of wax and debris formation.

  • Administer any prescribed medications. NOTE: Inability to medicate your pet is a common reason for treatment failure.

  • Schedule regular veterinary visits to monitor your pet's condition. Repeat cytology examinations is critical to curing long time treatments.

  • Periodic ear evaluations with cytology may be recommended.

  • Ear cultures may be useful in long-standing infections.

  • Of course, the precise follow-up depends on the severity of your pet's disease, response to therapy and your veterinarian's recommendations.
