You can apply the ear mite products to your pet if you are pregnant. All of the ear mite products are completely safe and nontoxic.

They also do not require a prescription. Please make sure to follow the directions for use of the pet ear mite products. We do provide an ear mite regimen in your package. Follow these easy instructions and you should have no trouble with your ear mite treatment. When starting your ear mite treatment, it is suggested to use a towel or blanket to wrap your pet in to reduce wiggling.

Application of products on the pet should be limited to those areas only which are infected.

Although these products are safe for human health, proper procedures and protocols should be followed for treatment. Read the information on the packaging and act accordingly.

Your pet is scratching his ears all the time, is irritated, shaking his head constantly and has a brown crust in his ears. Presence of all or some of these signs confirms the presence of ear mites on your pet. If you observe any of the above signs, have a close examination of your pet’s ears and you may observe more. The ears may have become red or swollen due to repeated scratching and a crust may be present inside the ears. Both the inner and outer portions of ear look inflamed.

For a confirmatory diagnosis the pet can be taken to a veterinarian where he can confirm it through microscopic examination and differential clinical signs. Performing conventional treatment for ear mites and monitoring the results can also be helpful in diagnosing ear mites. History of your pet’s interaction with other animals can help in correct diagnosis of the issue

There are a few ways that you can know if your pet has ear mites. Ear mites can be a horrible irritating and painful problem for your pet. Ear mites can also lead to a serious bacterial infection in the ear. The sooner you can start an ear mite treatment the better this will be for your pet.

The ear mite is a tiny little creature that lives on the surface of your pet’s ear. The condition is highly transmittable and can be passed from pet to pet, animal to animal, or human to animal. Ear mites don’t only live on the pet’s ear but they can also live on your pet’s body. Especially cats they tend to curl their tail near their face when sleeping and this can cause the mites to move to the tail.

One sign that you pet may have ear mites is by looking in the ear and noticing redness or irritation. Sometimes your animals will shake their heads or scratch at their ears. You may also see a built up of wax in the ear that looks like little black specs of dried up blood or feces. They may also be off balance or not want to hold their head upright or rub the head on carpeting or furniture.

We treat ear mites with our PetsBestRx Ear Wash Treatment and PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray. You can apply the PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray to the ear by spraying it on a Q-tip or cotton swab and applying it to the ear flap. Do not go any farther in the ear than the cotton tip of the Q-tip.  Pushing a Q-tip too far in the ear can cause a ruptured ear drum especially in cats.

The PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray is made to clean out the debris from the ear and also to help heal any ear infections from bacteria that may have been caused by the mites. The PetsBestRx Ear Wash Treatment is used to kill the ear mites in the ear and dehydrate the ear mite eggs. The All Stop Pest Control Eco Dust can be used in your home for ear mites. This product can be used indoors and outdoors.



Our products are suggested to be used on puppies or kittens four weeks and older. Normally, you will not be able to tell that you are dealing with an ear mite infestation until after that period of time, so this should not pose as a problem.
