What is Cat Ear Cleaner?
Cat Ear Cleaner is an infused, oil-based solution for cleaning felines' ears comfortably and naturally. The base oil of this formula is medium chain triglyceride oil from coconut, known for its incredible ability to keep skin tissue healthy and provide nutrition to the layers of the skin. Furthermore, MCT oil helps to maintain the natural immunity of the skin, assisting the skin's barrier capability often needed by cats prone to ear problems. Use Cat Ear Cleaner for regular maintenance or as needed.
What is Cat Ear Cleaner Used For?
Most felines do not require regular ear cleaning and are not generally prone to ear discomfort in the way many dogs are. If you notice your cat repeatedly scratching the ears, have a look inside. There may be ear mites present.
Ear mites are a fairly common parasite found in the ears of cats. There will be a brown/black substance that looks waxy or like coffee grounds, apparent in the folds inside the ears. You may notice your cat shaking his or her head or scratching in an attempt to relieve the itchiness caused by the ear mites.
A note from our veterinarian...
Cat Ear Cleaner was designed to gently clean the ears. The natural ingredients in this product support healthy skin and help maintain a clean, problem-free environment inside the ears. If there is evidence of chronic infections or discomfort in the ears, it is important to seek a consultation with your veterinarian. Recurrent ear problems may be a sign of underlying allergies, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, diabetes or other causes.
When cleaning the ears of your feline, be sure to never probe inside the ears with a Q-Tip or similar long instrument. This can lodge debris and discharge further into the ear canal or even rupture the eardrum. Be sure to follow the Directions for Use for the safety and comfort of your cat.
What are ear mites?
Mites spend most of their life living inside your cat’s ears. Because outward signs are not always apparent, it is important to have your veterinarian check your cat’s ears at each regular check up. If untreated, feline ear mites can cause an ear infection because bacteria will have access to the ear tissue through abrasions (tiny holes) made by the mites. Because the ear mites are irritating, many cats will scratch, which can cause reinfestation through the paws. Continued scratching can lead to bald patches where hair is torn out and even bleeding. At worst, the infection can spread to the brain, where it can even cause very serious health problems.
Common symptoms of feline ear mites
- Ear scratching
- Head shaking
- Dark discharge similar to coffee grounds

How to Administer Cat Ear Gold
Shake well before use.
Use once daily for 30 consecutive days for best results. To insert drops, hold tip of cat's ear and gently fold back. With the other hand, squeeze 4 - 5 drops into the ear. Before the cat shakes his/her head, start to massage the base of the ear for about 10 seconds. This will bring the debris closer to the surface. With a clean cotton ball, swab as much debris as possible from the ear crevices. Repeat with the other ear, making sure to use a fresh cotton ball.
Alternatively, put drops on a cotton ball and swab ears as well as you can. Use at room temperature or slightly warmer by holding bottle under warm water. Avoid touching nozzle to any discharge from the ear.
For ear mites, use once daily for 30 consecutive days. May also be used for routine ear cleaning as needed. Safe for daily, ongoing use if desired.
Use With Caution
- Does not require refrigeration.
- Do not insert cotton swabs (such as Q-Tips) into the ear canal.
- Use at room temperature or body temperature for the comfort and safety of the animal.
- Stop using if ears become red or inflamed. This may indicate an allergic reaction (very rare).
- Not for internal use. Do not use if ear drum is ruptured.
- For animal use only. Keep out of reach of children and animals. In case of accidental ingestion, contact a health professional immediately.
Cat Ear Cleaner is Formulated With:
- MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Oil: The base of MCT oil has the ability, on its own, to effectively clean and support the daily health of the ears. It gently loosens wax and debris. The oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids, similar to the wax normally created inside the ear. It also enhances the ears natural immunity to harmful bacteria, viruses and yeast.
- Neem Oil
- Calendula oil (infused): Petals of calendula flowers are gently infused into the MCT Oil
- Vitamin E Oil: Vitamin E is a fundamental component of providing the skin with nourishment. It helps to support the skin's ability to stay healthy after periods of scratching the ears that can cause abrasions.
