Q. Just inside one of my cats ears hes itchy its red and looks like dry skin please help cant get appointment at vet till after christmas thx
A. Place an e-collar (cone) on him to prevent scratching or rubbing. Consider adding an essential fatty acid supplement (usually a fish oil) to his diet to promote healthy skin. EFAs may also decrease inflammation and itching. Search www.pet360.com for fish oil supplements. Do not use an ear cleaner or any liquids in his ears until your vet can verify your cat's ear drum is intact.
