More on “Can ear mites cause hearing loss.”

In cases of severe ear mite infestation, history of repetitive infections and untreated cases, hearing loss can be the ultimate result. Hearing loss can be termed as the most common and hazardous ailment resulting from an ear mite infestation.  As these mites predominantly reside in the ear canal or other parts of the ear, an injury to your pet’s hearing device is quite probable. Hearing loss can range from mild loss in hearing sensitivity to complete deafness depending upon the damage to the ears.

The ear mites cause severe inflammation in the ear’s auditory canal and may damage the tympanic membrane which will result in a partial or complete deafness. Ear mite infestation is usually bilateral that is, it affects both the ears at the same time, and one ear is affected rarely. So in cases of bilateral infections both the ears may lose hearing ability resulting in complete deafness of your pet.

Ear mites’ infestation is notably transmittable and spreads very easily. If infected and non infected animals are in close contact, the healthy ones may catch mites very easily. If none of your pets are having any signs and symptoms of ear mites then there is no need to treat your pets. If some of the pets are having ear mites and others are mite free then there is no harm in treating the healthy ones, as spread of mites is very likely. Sometimes a pet may not show any signs up to a certain time even though it is infected. In cases of low mite load you may be unable to detect or notice any significant signs.

Treating all the pets is advised if the pets are sharing the same kennel or living in close contact with each other. In case there is a litter living with an infected mother, treatment can be done for all the pets.

Ear mites are host specific and not found on species other than cats, dogs and sometimes rabbits. Cats are likely to get infected more often as compared to dogs. Horses can at times mislead you by developing signs and symptoms very nearly similar to that of ear mites. The causative agent of these signs is variable. Ear ticks infections are more common in horses and they also develop inflammation and irritation in the ear. The ears get red and itchy and develop exudates which plug the ears. Ear ticks are usually mistaken for ear mites which are completely different species.

Sometimes ear mites can spread from pets to horses in a farm environment. But even if horses get invaded by ear mites they cannot survive and multiply there. If your horse is having any kind of ear problems the best thing is to consult a veterinarian who will perform detailed diagnostic test to confirm the type of parasites.
