Common types of products used for ear mites

Ear mites, an annoying external parasite of pets cause infection of the ear canal and ear drum. Ear mites are not confined to ears as the name suggest, it spread to other body parts. The ear mites are treated by flushing the ear debris and mites using insecticide as in fleas. It may be less stressful to eliminate ear mites with natural treatments like:

  • Antiseptic tea rinse: Green tea is a natural antiseptic. It can be used to flush out all the ear debris from the ear canal.
  • Oil treatments: oil soothes the ear and suffocates all the mites as well.
  • Non Toxic products:  such as Mitactin for ear mites

Veterinarians prescribe topical antibiotics for pets to treat minor cut, scratches due to mild allergies and inflammation that comes in a variety of forms including sprays, ointments, lotions etc. Common typical antibiotics are:

  • Panalog cream is topical antibiotics to treat ear and skin infections.
  • Ointments such as bacitracin, neomycin, polymyxin B and mycitracin are safe but your dog’s wound should be monitored daily for swelling and redness.
