We do have some veterinarians that recommend and endorse or products for an ear mite treatment. Other vets may not recommend our products because they do not know about them.
Here at Qbased we offer two products to treat for ear mites. These are the Mitactin Spray and our Healing and Protection Spray. The Healing and Protection spray is the first step we normally recommend on our paper regimen.
First you may want to wrap your pet in a blanket or towel with the head exposed. Then you apply the Healing and Protection spray on either a q-tip or cotton ball and swab the outer ear canal including the flaps of the ears. The Healing and Protection spray kills the bacteria in the area and also helps with the inflammation.
Thirty minutes later, you want to apply the Mitactin spray to a cotton ball or q-tip and swab the outer ear canal as well as the flaps of your pet’s ears. You want to get out as much debris as possible. The Mitactin spray kills the mites in the ears as well as on the head or even your pet’s tail.
We also offer environmental products which include the ready to use PuraCleen disinfectant spray and our concentrated cleaner which is called Xtreme Cleen. The Xtreme Cleen was designed to be diluted to mop floors or clean carpets, to be put in a washing machine or even to be made into a ready to use spray by diluting 2 oz to gallon of water similar to the strength of the ready to use disinfectant spray.
Both of these products can prevent re-infestation of ear mites in your home. Besides our environmental products we also offer our Mighty Vites which is an immune booster. It is very important that your pet’s immune system be well maintained because a healthy system fights off secondary infection and helps them to heal faster.
One of the other products we offer for the environment is our DeStroy Eco dust which is 100% food grade diatomaceous earth. It is safe to use inside as well as outside of your home. You can use this dust on your pet’s bedding, in their kennel, on your furniture or even outside in your home. This prevents re-infestation of ear mites in your home. It is also effective against spiders, ants and other insects.
There are two basic lines of treatment for ear mites. First is the systemic one and second one is local treatment. In systemic treatment antiparasitic agents are given through parental route which is the most effective way of ear mites control. But in this type of treatment only the animal gets treatment, while in case of ear mites we need to treat the environment as well.
Second way of treatment is local application of antiparasitics on infected parts such as the ear. This type of treatment is less effective than systemic treatment but is easy to use. This method can be practiced at home without need of a veterinarian. Different types of sprays, powders and ointments are used for this purpose.
Some people prefer to use home remedies for treating ear mites. Such methods have minimal effect and chances of recovery and poor. Along with medical treatment, proper management techniques should be followed for quick recovery and to avoid reinfestaion. All medication should be used according to the instructions of veterinarian or label provided with the medication.
