Ear mites’ infestation is notably transmittable and spreads very easily. If infected and non infected animals are in close contact, the healthy ones may catch mites very easily. If none of your pets are having any signs and symptoms of ear mites then there is no need to treat your pets. If some of the pets are having ear mites and others are mite free then there is no harm in treating the healthy ones, as spread of mites is very likely. Sometimes a pet may not show any signs up to a certain time even though it is infected. In cases of low mite load you may be unable to detect or notice any significant signs.
Treating all the pets is advised if the pets are sharing the same kennel or living in close contact with each other. In case there is a litter living with an infected mother, treatment can be done for all the pets.
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.
