About a year ago, our 12 year old tortoise shell house cat, Nike, was diagnosed by his vet with benign ear tumors. Nike had also developed some wart-like growths under his chin. He was constantly scratching his head and ears, and black secretions filled his ear cavity from overproduction of ear wax caused by the tumors. Not an uncommon condition in cats. He was rather listless, and not nearly as playful as he had always been. We thought it to be the results of advancing age.
Our vet recommended that we apply a petroleum salve to his ears twice a month and clean the ear canal every week. Nike detested these sessions. After several months of this treatment, there was some improvement, however it was very slight. I decided to try a small dosage of System Saver in place of the salve and ear cleaning.
