Brown Ear Wax

My cat has brownish gunk in only one of her ears. I am assuming it is ear wax. I left her with the vet and the the vet said it was allergies and would eventually go away. She has had this before. I have also heard it could be a yeast infection. I washed out her ear with hydrogen peroxide several times.  But it is still there. Any idea what it is and or remedies. I am guessing it is not ear mites or else the vet would have said something.  And my other cat would have caught it if it was ear mites.

I find it hard to believe your vet is a total idiot...if he says it's not ear mites it's possible...I'd dose him just in case.

I had a dog who had this problem. It was finally figured out that it was caused by him sleeping on that side all the time, and the heat/moisture build up was causing it. So...I can't tell you how irritating it is to poke your dog every 5 minutes to get him to roll over onto his other side. It's not very practical...

Can I get this over the counter?

Ear mite medication is over the counter stuff. Try taking some of the wax and placing it on a black piece of paper. The ear mites or white and look like tiny spec's, if you look close you can see them moving. They are very tiny.

Try one mite-regime...cats hate it, so if it doesn't work, you don't want to repeat it.
