Treating Earmites – 2 Traditional Treatments:

There are basically two lines of treatment for ear mites, the systemic one and the local one. In the systemic line of treatment antiparasitic preparations are given through parental route. While in the local treatment the medicine is applied locally on infected parts. Both types of treatments have its own advantages and drawbacks.

The systemic line of treatment is more effective as it reaches all parts f the body through blood and kills ear mites there. The local treatment only has its effect limited to its area of application. Systemic treatment may produce some untoward side effects at times contrary to local treatment which is always safe.

A combined course of both treatments along with preventive measures for spreading of the infestation is the most successful practice. Any treatment for ear mites should always be accompanied by proper preventive management practices and following strict hygiene measures. An on time treatment plus proper control practices will result in a mite free happy pet.
