Yes, it is recommended that you quarantine your pet when you are dealing with a case of ear mites. This should help to prevent the other pets from catching ear mites because it is a highly contagious condition.

It is important you treat your home and your pet for ear mites at the same time. The ear mites don’t always stay in the ear. They will burrow into your pet’s bedding while sleeping and wait to re-infect them later. They can also move to other parts of your pet’s body such as the face, paws and tail.

If the ear mites are left untreated it can cause a secondary infection. You can usually tell a secondary infection is present if there is a septic smell to the skin. We treat ear mites with our PetsBestRx Mitactin Spray and PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray. These products work in conjunction together to rid your pet of ear mites.

We also offer a food grade diatomaceous earth called DE-Stroy Pest Control Eco Dust. This product can be sprinkled around your home and pet’s bedding to work against ear mites in your home.

The PuraCleenRx Disinfectant Spray can be used to clean and sanitize your home when you are dealing with ear mites. This product can be use on hard surfaces or even upholstered furniture.  The PuraCleenRx Xtreme Cleen can be used as a concentrated disinfectant for your home. This product can be diluted for the laundry and also to be used for mopping and spraying your home.

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.
