Yes, you must treat your furniture for ear mites if you have an inside pet. Ear mites are highly contagious so it is very important that you treat the environment.
It is also important to quarantine your infected pet if you have others in your home. The longer your pet has had ear mites the more ear mites are present in the ear. If left untreated ear mites can cause ear infections and may be even lead to hearing loss.
If a septic smell is present in the ear, it can be a sign of secondary infection that must be treated properly. Ear mites can also move to other parts of your pet’s body, including the face, paws and tail. Ear mites will transfer to items in your home and re-infect your pets again once the spot is re-visited. We do offer our All Stop DE-Stroy Pest Control Eco Dust to treat your home for ear mites. This is a food grade diatomaceous earth powder that is completely safe to use around kids and pets as well as yourself. This product can be used indoors and outdoors.
We also offer surface disinfectants as well. These are our PuraCleenRx Disinfectant Spray or our PuraCleenRx Xtreme Cleen. These can be used to disinfect your furniture when dealing with ear mites. Sometimes when your pet is dealing with ear mites they are also suffering from a lowered immune system. We do offer our PetsBestRx Mighty Vites to naturally boost your pet’s immune system. This would help them to fight any infection that may be in the ear and also to heal quickly from ear mites.
