How to get rid of & treat a cat ear yeast infection with Banixx

Itchy, Scratchy Ears: Ear and Skin Yeast Infections in Cats

cat ear and skin infection A cat ear yeast infection is one of the most commonly diagnosed cat ear problems at veterinary clinics. But unlike their canine counterparts, cats, by nature, tend to be very stoic creatures. As a result, ear infections in cats may cause serious health issues and may reach an advanced state before symptoms become noticeable. If you suspect your cat may have an ear infection, do not hesitate to contact your veterinarian immediately. Only your vet can help you determine the underlying cause of the infection – whether it’s a yeast issue, ear mites, fungus, or something else. Banixx Pet Care spray can be used in conjunction with any formulation prescribed by your Veterinarian, as an over-the-counter (OTC) ear cleaner and soothing agent for your cat’s ears.  With cats, it may be best to apply Banixx via a cotton ball for minimal trauma, although, the fact that Banixx has no odor or burn is a winner for your cat. Banixx is frequently used as a home remedy for keeping your cats ears clean and in tip top condition.

How can I tell if my cat ear problems are due to an ear infection?

Is your cat scratching at her ears? Is she shaking her head frequently? Are your cat’s ears smelly or do you notice heat around the ears? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, your pet may have a cat ear yeast infection. Other signs and symptoms to look for include:

  • Black or yellowish discharge
  • Redness or swelling in and around the ear
  • Waxy buildup on or near the ear canal
  • Discharge from the ear that resembles coffee grounds (a symptom of ear mites)
  • Hearing loss or loss of balance

How to use Banixx at home to treat my cat’s ear infection?

Once your veterinarian has determined the underlying cause of your cat’s ear infection (which may be due to mites or a fungal yeast infection) he will recommend treatment to eliminate it. If the problem is mites, an anti-parastic ointment will take care of them economically and in short order. Banixx can then be applied twice daily as a soothing, healing agent to treat the infection and irritation caused by the biting mites. If your cat’s ear has a yeast fungal infection, Banixx can be used to quickly combat the yeast/fungus infection and, thereafter, as a regular ear cleaner for this type of cat ear problem.

To simply treat your cat’s ear infection, simply spray Banixx onto the cotton ball until moist, and gently apply to the affected ear(s). The inside of the ear must be well moistened with Banixx to work. Banixx works on contact. Massage Banixx gently into your cats ear. Cats are very receptive to Banixx because it has no smell nor does it have any sting or pain attached. Results should be seen in a couple of days. You will love Banixx’ quick results as a home remedy; your cat will love the fact that Banixx, devoid of any smell or odor, causes absolutely no pain or discomfort!

What causes cat ear infections? Cat Skin infections?

Yeast is the most common cause of fungal ear infections in cats, but bacterial infections, both pathogenic (picked up from outside) and non-pathogenic (such as staph) are also quite common cat ear problems. Ear mites are another common cause of head shaking and scratching. A veterinarian can quickly determine if ear mites are the cause, and may prescribe a straightforward, anti-parasitic treatment to eliminate the mites in short order. However, these ugly mites cause much surface tissue damage that is easily fixed with a few Banixx applications.

Other contributing causes of ear infections in cats include:

  • Wax build up or thick hair in the ear canal
  • Allergies (dietary or environmental)
  • Autoimmune diseases (FIV)
  • Tumors/polyps within the ear canal or a ruptured eardrum
  • Foreign bodies such as foxtails or grass seeds
Customer Testimonial:
“We have been treating our cat for ear infections for 2 years. The vets have given up. I thought this was worth a try. After one week, the infection was gone. I recommend this product to everyone!”From Eve, via Amazon
“I wasn’t sure if this product would work or not but after giving it a try I can honestly say I’m impressed. I have 2 cats, a boy and a girl who both had some sort of fungal infection of the ears from a left over battle with ear mites and the boy cat also had a bit of a fungal/bacterial infection on his back paws, and Banixx cleared it right up. Now both of my kitties are good as new again. I will definitely purchase this product again to keep on hand.”From Alyssa
“I am always very Skeptical of products for my babies, but this actually worked. One of my cats ears were really bad, Black funk coming out of her ears and everyone kept saying..”its ear mites”, but the ear mite treatment solution wouldn’t clear up anything. The Banixx cleared her ears in three days, doing once in the morning and once at night. I am so happy this product worked like it said it would. Thank you!”From Amazon Customer
