Customer Question

My two young cats often wash each others ears of course, but one has been a bit over-enthusiastic, resulting in the other one having a sore ear (eternal). Just wondering if I can put anything on it that will taste bad enough to put the other one off doing it! They can`t bear to be seperated.

Dr. Susan :

Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Dr. Susan :

Yes, we can definitely try a few different things (trial and error) until we find something that works.

Dr. Susan :

You can try a bitter apple spray which is available over the counter at regular pet stores.

Dr. Susan :

You can also try tabasco or vinegar.

Dr. Susan :

The tabasco might cause some tingling, so try a small amount first!
