My sweet, sweet cat, Pierre, has been struggling with ear mites for a while and just last night I noticed that he has developed a hematoma in his ear. The outside of his ear has swelled up from all of the scratching and shaking of his head. From what I have read, the treatment is that it needs to be sliced, anyone have any experience with this? A vet bill is certainly not feasable in my financial future, of course I would do anything for my baby, though. Do any of you do some of your own "procedures" at home under the right conditions? Thanks!
