"Yeasty" ears in catHello, I am hoping someone might have some guidance for me. My 18 year old cat has had terrible trouble with 'yeast' ears his whole life. I have tried nearly every over the counter and prescription remedy and nothing has helped him. I have not yet tried homeopathy and am hoping this might help.
When he shakes his head you can hear fluid. They are always a bit smelly, but every few weeks the yeast seems to 'bloom' or something and his ears smell particularly foul. The yeast was diagnosed by more than one veterinarian, so I don't think it is anything else, like bacterial.
Any input is much appreciated. Thank you

The ear secretions are dark brown and seems a bit dry. It looks like ear mites upon first glance, but he has been tested many times and it always comes back yeast. The stuff is not thick. His ears appear to really hurt him when you touch them. Although I can hear fluid when he shakes his head I have never seen fluid come out. The stuff never crusts over, but it is a bit difficult to remove with an ear bud (it does not come off like thick ear wax but instead is difficult to remove).
The cat has a very calm and sweet nature. Never fights, very friendly. Always wants to be outside.
I hope I have given you useful information. Thanks very much.
