Our cat was once a “community cat”. We took him to be neutered a year ago and after that he started living with us and became our cat. Unfortunately, he has an ear infection and won’t let us put the Tresaderm drops in his ears that our vet prescribed. We have had his ears cleaned while sedated at the vet (including when he was recently there for dental extractions) and tried a few courses of oral antibiotics in the past year. I see many people have posted about having thick ointment put in their cat’s ears by their vets. In the US there is a medication like this called Claro. It is approved for dogs but off-label for cats. It stays in the ear and dissolves over 30 days—such a long treatment! It can have neurological side effects so I do not want to have him treated with it. Has anyone had success treating their somewhat semi-feral cat’s ear infection with any methods? I’m constantly worried and frustrated about this situation.
