    Anyone else had problems with these little so and so's lately?
    Just taken Frisbee to the vet coz he had a red swollen eye which developed into scaly sore skin going up to both ears, poor boy. The vet said it was earmites, which Gracie(there for her second vacc) also had in one ear.
    A very expensive vet visit coz now I need treatment for the other 7 cats!!:rolleyes:
    To make matters worse the vet said the dogs could of bought them in so best to treat too. Which means my friend/dog sitter now needs to do her 11 cats!:eek:
    Darn animals!!!(Im guessing its all the hot weather making them more prevalent)..:confused:

    A bottle of TEP or thornit will cost about £5/6 and lasts ages- you apply a light dusting with a cotton bud.

    Do not use it on broken skin.
