VideoJug show you how to safely and easily give your cat ear drops or ointment. This film is made with advice from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London, so follow it carefully and learn the best way to give your cat it's eardrops.

Step 1: You will need

  • Ear drops or ointment
  • A towel

Step 2: Hold your cat securely

Place the cat on a table or in your lap and drape your arm across her body to keep her steady. You may need to wrap her in a towel to stop her scratching. Keep your body or a wall behind your cat to stop her moving backwards.

Cradle her head with one hand, holding firmly and gently, and tilt her face upwards.

Step 3: Apply the medication

While you are holding your cat's head, hold the ear flap back with the other hand. Put the correct amount of drops or ointment into the opening.

With your free hand, massage the side of your cat's head to help the medication move down the ear canal.

Wipe away any excess medication and let go of the ear flap.

Remember to give your cat a treat afterwards.
