Took MJ to the vet (again) for some consultation.
Apparently, they don't give Ivermectin injections, unless for severe cases where topical treatment does not show effects, as an injection may cause additional stress to the cat's body. With ear mites and fur mites, they would recommend for Frontline Spot On and Ear Canker. MJ was given some vitamins, as he looked a bit weak, which probably was due to the injection.
After doing some research and consultations. I've decided to not go for the 2nd Ivermection. After all, it would be too troublesome for me (alone with 9 cats). And if it does cause additional stress to the cat's body, then I'll opt out. I would like to minimize the possibility for stress on them as I think the traveling and quarantine they'll have to go through will be highly stressful for them.
So Frontline Spot One and Troy Ear Canker for the 9 of them. This calls for another project with the cats.
I had been looking for this from the 1st time we had an ear mite attack.
I got it for RM18 each.
I got 3 boxes of this Frontline Spot On for my 9 cats.
but am wondering, why it looks different from the ones I have bought previously.
and the pipet is in blue
as compared to the previous box
and the pipet was in green
