i've noticed my cat has been rubbing her ears for quite awhile and yesterday noticed a bald spot behind one of her ears so took her to the vet. they said it was a fungal infection and proceeded to clean out hear ears and administer some antifungal cream. while they were doing this with q-tips she started to really struggle and hiss and basically went crazy, so after awhile they put her in a restraining bag type thing and she calmed down and everything proceeded fine. when we got back i was checking out her ears and noticed the fur near one of them was stained red (they didnt use any red creams from what i could see?) and that ear wasn't moving around in response to sound like the other... her response to certain sounds seems to have slowed down.. i'm a bit worried she has lost some of her hearing! maybe from the struggle while she was being cleaned? or just from the infection (in which case hopefully its temporary)? has anyone ever had any similar experiences with hearing loss and ear infections??
