• I recently checked out my cat's ears and spotted blood in them. I have been to the vet and he's had a bacterial infection in his ears along with ear mites. I haven't been able to afford the medications but will now be able to afford them. Is this something that I should be concerned about? The next appointment is 11/21.

    Hi Melissa,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian prior to 11/21 if possible. Blood in the ears is concerning and this is likely uncomfortable for him. Your vet can recommend the medications that will be best for him after they have examined him.

Need more information or advice?
