Four Paws Ear Mite Cat Remedy
It's ear mite medicine, so it's not exactly like you can give it an in-depth review. It only gets 4 stars because the instructions say you have to introduce 5 drops into the cats ear canal, (which is hard to determine, given how slowly the drops drip) then massage the ear for 3-5 minutes. So I have an unhappy cat with an indeterminate amount of goo in his ear that he desperately wants to shake out, holding him and rubbing his ear whilst watching the clock.
However, despite being a bit aggravating, it does in fact work, and my household is ear mite free after only 3 applications. Granted, it might have only taken 2, but the first didn't go well.
Also, no one got sick from it, and I know I saw a paw rubbing it, and then being cleaned, so that's a bonus.
Overall, I'd recommend it, just be aware that you really will need to hold onto your cat.

It killed the ear mites quick!
We found a stray kitten with ear mites and wanted to be sure to treat them before our other pets got them as well. The product says not to use on kittens under 12 weeks old. We were unsure about the kitten's age but she weighs about 4 lbs and felt the medicine would be okay if we cut the dosage in half. The ear mites seemed to die off by the 3rd day of using the drops. However it caused the kitten's ears to get dry and scabby, they were not like that at all until we used the drops. That was not an expected side affect and I wished it was mentioned on the label. We stopped using the product after 5 days instead of the recommended 7-10 because it was so irritating to the kitten whose ears seemed very bothered by the drops. So far we have not seen a return of the mites but it has only been a few days since we stopped use to they may return and we will just have to reuse the drops. I was very happy with the amount of drops in the bottle. I will be able to use it on our other pets if the mites spread to them. The cost of the product was amazing and it was way cheaper than having to go to the vet for a diagnosis and prescription for an obvious ear mite problem. Thank you for making this product available without a prescription.

This product works great
My cats didn't like me putting it in their ears but it worked really good to get rid of the problem.
