My 18-year old cat has had a long-standing otitis (began about 6 months ago) in her left ear. Veterinarian gave us ear drops to administer — no help. At first, there was quite a lot of yellow pus. I have been administering Merc Solubilis 6 three times a day, 3 weeks on then two weeks off. The discharge is now clear, liquid, and dries to dark brown crusts. Before we started the Merc Sol, she would scratch the ear a lot, to the point of wearing the fur down. Now she rarely scratches, but does complain when I clean the ear out with cotton, so it must be sensitive. About two years ago she went for many months with a lot of sneezing — often discharging phlegm — at the time we suspected an allergy. Now I think perhaps the problem was a bad tooth, and the problem eventually migrated to her Eustachian tube. I believe she has pain in her lower back as she walks with her spine arched. Otherwise she seems quite robust for her age (even the veterinarian commented on it), her fur is thick and shiny and her appetite is excellent (raw fed with supplements). She is a meek girl, and very sweet, but if she wants to be fed, she lets us know loudly! She is quite deaf. Also always demands loudly to be fed late at night. Am I hopefully on the right track with the Merc Sol? I have heard that this type of condition can take a long time to clear. Any feedback appreciated. Many thanks.
