- - drops from an ear mite;
- - hydrogen peroxide;
- - cotton swabs.

Clean the cat's ear: Before using the drops, the cat's auricle must be cleaned of ticks and their excrement. Typically visible to the naked eye, they are dark gray or brown discharge on the inside of a cat's ear. Take a cotton swab and dip it in hydrogen peroxide. You should not be afraid, for the animal it is completely safe and painless, only the procedure itself causes unpleasant sensations. Take the cat in your hands and gently remove all plaque and dirt in the ears with a cotton swab. If necessary, use another stick. Your task is to keep the auricle clean.

Using gentle massaging movements, rub the outer side of your furry's ears so that the medicine can be evenly distributed.
