Although ear mites cannot cause yeast infections directly but they certainly make your pet more prone to acquiring yeast infections. Ear mites can make your pet susceptible to yeast infections in two main ways. First by lowering the immunity of the body and causing stress and second by predisposing the effected parts to yeast secondary bacterial infection. Ear mites can cause lacerations and wounds in ear some times, which favor the growth of yeast. Yeast usually affects the skin of pets and can make the condition more severe, by causing hair loss and making patches on your pet’s body. Your pet will end up looking unpleasant at the end of the day.

It is recommended to treat ear mites as early as possible to avoid further aggravation of the problem. Ear mites if accompanied by secondary bacterial infections and yeast infections can cause serious health risks to your pet.

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 infection is non zoonotic, that is it cannot be transmitted from pets to humans. The most susceptible species to ear mites are dogs and cats. Rabbits and hamsters may catch infections rarely. The infection spreads very rapidly in between the same specie through direct or close contact. If your companion animal has got ear mites you may occasionally find these mites in your body but they cannot cause actual infection and humans remain safe from ear mite’s infection.

It is advised to treat your pet as soon as possible when you observe ear mite infection’s symptoms. It is better to keep the animal in isolation also to avoid infection in other pets.
