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 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.
