No your pet cannot directly get a yeast infection from ear mites. The presence of ear mites on your pet can cause the pet’s immune system to lower.
Once your pet’s immune system is lowered they are more susceptible to getting yeast infections, ringworm and other secondary bacterial infections. Ear mites can also cause your pet to have ear infections in the ear depending on the severity of the ear mite infestation. It is important to treat an ear mite infestation as soon as you start to see symptoms.
Lack of treatment of ear mites can cause hear loss in your pets. We treat ear mites with our PetsBestRx Mitactin Spray and PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray in the ear. When treating for ear mites, it is also important to treat your environment because this condition is highly contagious.

More information on “can yeast infections be caused by ear mites?”
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.
