My cat foams at the mouth and drools soon and /or immediately after I put thyroid medication on her ear. What to do?

I phoned the vet with the problem and she seems stumped.
Mishka will start foaming immediately after the ointment is put on her ear, so she hasn't had time to rub her paw on the medicine to lick it, so I don't think ingesting some of it is the problem. It is not every day, but about 1/3 to 1/2 the time. It really takes a lot out of her and distresses both of us. Can she be having a reaction to the thyroid ointment on her ear?

Yes, ask your vet that you'd rather give the medicine in pill form. Panda is on thyroid pills 2x a day and I can get him to eat them with a pill pocket, a pill-dispensing treat. Orion likes both the salmon and chicken flavors. They have them at most pet stores and a bunch of vet offices too. ^_^
