Treatments for ear mites may vary from topical applications or sprays to inject able medicines like sub cut and intra venous injections. In case of injections the effect is systemic and the medicine reaches every part of the body and shows its effect. In case of sprays and topical applications the effect is limited only to those parts on which the spray or medicine is applied. If you are using sprays for treating ear mites it should only be applied to those parts where mites are present. Ear mites are present in the ears predominantly and sprays should be limited to ears only. If the spray is applied to other parts it may cause irritation especially in the eyes. In cases when ear mites are present on other parts of the body also, sprays can be applied to those parts. All the instructions on the medicine label should be read and properly followed for your own and your pet’s safety.

Your pet can get ear mites from a variety of sources but most common of them are the environment and other infected pets. Ear mites spread very easily from one infected animal to the other. If your pet keeps roaming around for a major portion of the day, he may come in contact with other infected pets and catch ear mites. If you have multiple pets at your home, one of them may infect the other one if the live in close contact.

If you are taking your pet to pet shows or pet training centers, chances of infection will improve due to interaction with other pets. An infected pet may shed mites in to its environment and healthy pets may get infected through it. If your pet stays at home most of the time and has less interaction with other pets, chances of getting ear mites are very low. It is advised to check your pets regularly for any kind of parasitic infections and take proper hygiene care of your pet. Regular bathing and cleaning your pet will greatly decrease the chances of ear mite infestation.

There are a few ways your pet may get ear mites. It can either be by person to person contact or animal to animal contact.

This can be either in your home or maybe at a dog park or a groomers or even going over to a friend’s home that may have a pet with ear mites.  Even coming in contact with another person who has a dog with ear mites, they can be contracted. Some signs of ear mites are shaking his or her head, rubbing the head on the carpet or up against objects and gnawing at their tails. Ear Mites can transfer to your pet’s tail by their position during sleeping.

There are some cases where the ear mites will also be on the head or even the surrounding fur of your pet. Another sign of ear mites is the dark specks in the ears resembling coffee grounds. The mite is actually a white microscopic bug that sort of resembles a crab and if left untreated can cause a secondary infection.

The products that we offer for ear mites are our PetsBestRx Mitactin spray which kills the mites by breaking down the exoskeleton and also breaks down the membrane of the eggs by dehydrating it and then it in turn dies.  The other product we offer for the ears is our Healing Protection spray which is used for the swelling and inflammation. It also kills the bacteria in the ear.

Our product we offer for your environment is the DeStroy Eco dust which is 100% food grade diatomaceous earth and is safe and non toxic. It breaks the exoskeleton down of the mite when they crawl through it and they dehydrate and die. You can even apply a light coating of it on the outer surface of the ear or even the head. It can also be sprinkled in your home like on your furniture, on your carpet and even outside. We do recommend that if the DeStroy Eco dust gets wet, you apply it again once the area has dried.

Ear mites will not bite your family. Ear mites are tiny microorganisms that resemble tiny ticks. Some signs your pet may have ear mites are scratching of the ears, whining, shaking of the head and dark debris in the ear.
