Why does my cat have bumps in her ear?


Answer by  roger (199)

It might be scleroids or some infection from parasites which are incubating in your cat as a seconday host. Better try with a dose of metronidazole.

If the bumps are also itchy it is likely an allergic reaction to food or environmental factors. Common food allergies in cats include corn, wheat gluten and fish (especially fish meal). Changing foods to a different protein source e.g. chicken or duck and removing corn may help.

Bumps in your cat's ear could be several things. If they are red, they could be fleas or ticks. If they are larger, they could be something more serious like a tumor. Your best course of action is to see your vet immediately if your cat's physical appearance has changed in any way.

You did not mention whether your cat is scratching at the bumps, or if the bumps are red or angry looking. There are numerous reasons for ear bumps, although parasites and allergies are common causes. The only sure way to know is to take your kitty to a veterinarian.

There are a lot of possible reasons for this. Your cat could have a skin allergy, in which case try changing her food to see if that helps. She could be having an allergic reaction to something that's touched her ear. She could also have an ear infection that is causing the bumps.

This could be an infection, or a type of mange, but simply- cat's ears have inner and outer skins. They play and fight,swellings and fluids can build up between the two. If solid, you may have cysts, growths or infections, if fluid, try hot compresses.

Your cat might have ear mights or a yeast infection in its ear. It can also have a reaction to flea spray.
