New: Animal Tip of the Day #1

Each day, I will provide you helpful tips regarding all animals, especially cats and dogs.

Tip #1 Periodically check your cat's or dog's ears. If they look dirty, it might be ear mites. Get him or her to a vet.

Ear mites are tiny crab like parasites, if left untreated, can cause a bacterial and yeast infections and, in extreme cases, rupture of the ear drum leading to seizures and deafness. Ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) are the most common cause of outer-ear inflammation in cats - especially kittens and young cats. Frequent ear scratching and head shaking are the most often seen symptoms. Source:
