Question: if i place vinegar into my cats ears for a yeast infection and it turns out to be a bacterial infection instead?
infection instead is the vinegar solution still ok to use either way. Are there any known remedies for bacterial infection in cats if its not yeast. Her ears arent smelly just red and irritated from her scratching and now shes scratching her eyes.

You should probably consult a veterinarian before treating a pet for any condition.

If you intend to oppose a home remedy, vinegar can act as a sterile cleaning agent for any kind of infection, be it viral, bacterial, or fungal. If the irritation has spread to her eyes, however, I strongly urge you to see a vet.

    You can mix apple cider vinegar, water and a few drops of tea tree oil to treat bacterial or yeast infections of the ear.

    It sounds like ear mites. Take her to the vet. You could very well worsen her symptoms. Never put anything in her ears or eyes, unless advised upon by a vet.
