I clean my ferrets ears quite often, about every few weeks. I looked at Munchlet today and found this. It is like he has tons of wax. I have never seen this much wax in and coming out of a ferrets ears in just a few weeks. It is in just one ear. The other ear only has a little bit of wax, nothing out of the norm. What could cause something so bad? He usually sleeps on this ear. Maybe it’s ear mites. I’ve never seen a case on a ferret before.

We are in the process of moving to CT and his ear cleaner is currently down there. It was too late to run to the store. I used water to clean his ear out, I felt so bad for him.

UPDATE: After a trip to the vet and a few test is was determined that he has an ear infection, not mites.
