Ear mites in dogs are a very common dog ear problem and when there are dog ear mites present then an ear mites treatment for dogs is needed
A: The short answer is you can’t know for sure unless you do lab testing. In fact, often when treatment is prescribed for ear mites, there is a simultaneous secondary infection which goes undiagnosed. EcoEars acts as a natural broad spectrum disinfectant and treats the vast majority of infections, so you don’t have to know exactly what is causing your dog’s ear infection to cure it.
When the ears are clean, you may begin the treatment to rid your dog's ear of mites and prevent a re-infestation. Oil smothers ear mites, providing a protective layer on the inner ear. A couple of drops of mineral oil or baby oil, inserted once or twice a day, may end the itching. Alternately, The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Cats and Dogs suggests crushing four garlic cloves and soaking them in olive oil for at least 10 hours before straining and using in place of the baby oil. Repeat daily treatments until the dog's ears appear healthy and he is no longer scratching. It may take up to three weeks to eradicate all the ear mites.

Yes. However, ear mites have evolved to prefer dogs and cats rather than people. In people's ears, mites die without treatment after a few weeks, but they can be treated and removed as soon as they are diagnosed, just as they are for your pet. People who have had ear mites report that the infection nearly drove them insane because they could hear the scratching in their head, and because of the irritating sensation caused as the mites moved. People also report that they suffered from intense itching, heat, and inflammation. Many owners will recognise signs of ear discomfort in their dog or cat and may choose to initiate over-the-counter to treat the disorder. This is not recommended. Accurate diagnosis of the cause of the ear irritation and identification of any secondary infections by a veterinarian is vital to ensure adequate treatment of the disorder. A veterinarian can perform microscopic examination of the ear canal discharge and debris and identify the presence of ear mites, bacteria, yeasts and any other contributing factors. Cat or dog ear treatment can then be tailored to the specific needs of the animal. It is essential to never place any dog ear treatment or car ear care cleaner into the ear canal without first ensuring that the ear drum (tympanic membrane) is intact. Any product which is used in an ear with a damaged ear drum can potentially cause serious side effects in the treated animal, affecting its hearing and balance. Your veterinarian can examine the ear drum with an otoscope to check it is intact prior to any cat or dog ear treatment being instituted.It is important to note that seeking treatment immediately is advised, because if left untreated, ear mites can cause a blood vessel to rupture in your dog’s ear, intense discomfort, and in severe cases, an aural hematoma can occur, which will require surgery to correct.Cat and dog ear treatment options include use of topical formulations applied directly into the ear canal or onto the skin at the back of the neck and systemic treatments. "Because ear mites may survive outside the ear canal, topical products applied dermally and systemic treatments provide more reliable efficacy". Due to the highly contagious nature of ear mites, all in-contact animals should also be treated. Otodectes cynotis are not host-specific ear mites and may infest species other than cats and dogs. Specific treatment protocols for pets other than the affected dog or cat should be discussed with your veterinarian as not all species can safely tolerate the use of the same dog or cat ear care products.
