EAR MITES

 

HOW TO TREAT EAR MITES IN CATS OR DOGS EARS

Ear Mites are a brown crumbly substance that looks like coffee grounds.These insects live and breeds in the ear canals, feeding on ear debris, cell fluids and blood. Ear Mites can be pass from one dog or cat to any other animal within the home. There are several products on the market used to control Ear Mites. Before placing these products into the ear, you will need to remove as many Ear Mites as possible by using a cotton ball or a piece of tissue. Do not use a cotton swab because if you go too far into the ear canal you take a chance of puncture the eardrum. Once you get as much out as you can, now you are ready to use an ear wash to remove the Mites from deep within the canal. The next step is to use a product containing Pyrethrins which is an insecticidal used to kill Mites. You will need to repeat the treatment a few days later to kill the Mites that survives the first treatment.

You can buy the products containing Pyrethrins from most pet supply stores. If the Ear Mites continue to be a problem with your pet  please take your pet to your veterinarian so he or she can prescribe prescription medication.

EAR MITES AND FLEAS CONTROL

HOW TO CONTROL EAR MITES and FLEAS:

There are several produces on the market available to control ear mites. If your pet is an outside pet or goes outside sometimes, there are products you can purchase that can be beneficial  for your pet. As many pet owners not only fight with eat mites problems but also have problem with fleas and ticks. I have used Advantage II on my cat  to control fleas  because she goes in and out of the house. She had a ear mite issue in the past  but since I been using ADVANTAGE II product to control the fleas she has  not shown any signs of ear mites anymore. One of the active ingredients in Advantage II is PYRIPROXFEN. As I wrote earlier PYRETHRINS is used to control ear mites so it seem maybe PYRIPROXFEN has an effect on ear mites also.

There is another product on the market which states it treats and controls Fleas, Ticks and Sarcoptic Mange (dogs only), Ear Mites, Hartworm disease, Roundworms and Hookworms. This product is called REVOLUTION and it required a prescription from your veterinarian. The active ingredient in Revolution is SELAMECTIN.  I am going to give this product a try and see if it works. I will let you know the results of my test. You can order Revolution through !-800-PetMeds and PetCareRX.
