Here at Qbased we offer two products to treat for ear mites. These are the Mitactin Spray and our Healing and Protection Spray. The Healing and Protection spray is the first step we normally recommend on our paper regimen.

First you may want to wrap your pet in a blanket or towel with the head exposed. Then you apply the Healing and Protection spray on either a q-tip or cotton ball and swab the outer ear canal including the flaps of the ears. The Healing and Protection spray kills the bacteria in the area and also helps with the inflammation.

Thirty minutes later, you want to apply the Mitactin spray to a cotton ball or q-tip and swab the outer ear canal as well as the flaps of your pet’s ears. You want to get out as much debris as possible. The Mitactin spray kills the mites in the ears as well as on the head or even your pet’s tail.

We also offer environmental products which include the ready to use PuraCleen disinfectant spray and our concentrated cleaner which is called Xtreme Cleen. The Xtreme Cleen was designed to be diluted to mop floors or clean carpets, to be put in a washing machine or even to be made into a ready to use spray by diluting 2 oz to gallon of water similar to the strength of the ready to use disinfectant spray.

This method can be practiced at home without need of a veterinarian. Different types of sprays, powders and ointments are used for this purpose.
