    I live in the country, so I naturally have over a dozen farm cats.

    As a student, I could never hope to afford vet bills for all of these cats.

    One day, a new cat showed up, with a scabbed up ear.

    Recently,the ear is far, far worse. I don't want to lose the cat, because she takes care of the other cats, but I don't want this infection to spread to any of the others.

    I don't know what I can really do in this situation..

    The vet can prescribe a suitable medication, possibly with a steroid in it. If you can't afford the vet, perhaps you could ring your nearest animal welfare. They may take a look at her. I know my animal welfare have been a godsend to us

    Thank you.


    But it's gotten pretty advanced, I think she may lose the ear soon. They can really still help her?

    Probably not I'm afraid, but they could refer you to a really good vet though
