Ear Mites and dogs
Ear Mites and dogs are a common parasite/host problem.
The mites (tiny, almost microscopic) can be uncomfortable for your dog and lead to scratching around the ears that can cause sores and infection.

Symptoms of Ear Mites:

Constant shaking of the head
Constant scratching around the ears
A black discharge in the ear
If you smell the ear it smells "funky"

Now, your vet will charge you $100.00 for the visit and $50.00 for the medicine which is all well and good if you can afford it.

I had a farm vet (who has been practicing for 40 years) give me the following remedy.

Make an ear wash with 1 cup of boiled water and 1 tablespoon of salt, place in a "squirt" bottle (an old mustard bottle washed thoroughly in hot water and rinsed out with rubbing alcohol works fine) and squirt in the ear and massage the side of the dogs face. Let the dog shake it's head and then use cotton balls (NO CUTIPS) to wipe out the dogs ear(s) - you probably will see all sorts of nasty stuff wiped off.

Now make a solution of liquid vitamin E (available over the counter at drug stores and super markets) 1/2 with 1/2 Olive oil in a dropper bottle and shake well. Place 1/2 dropper in each infected ear (about 1/2 teaspoon) every other day. Repeat the ear wash once a week.

My dog had ear mites BAD (he was a shelter rescue) when I got him, spent money at the vet and for medicine but it never really went away.
I did what that old horse doctor told me and my dog is mite free and probably cost me about 10 bucks !

Re: Ear Mites and dogs
All of my three dogs have been suffering from ear mites for quite some time. I frequently treated their ears with some drops from the vet, but after about 2-3 weeks they came back with a vengeance.So I brought PetsBestRx Ear Mite Medicine Pack - [link to shop.qbased.com] from Qbased Healthcare. The itching and scratching had stopped almost immediately (that was about 6 weeks ago)and so far, no new mites!!! In case they do come back, I will just repeat the treatment.My dogs are very happy now!

I wish there was something easy to do with my cat. Unfortunately, cats won't stay still to let you use any treatment for ear mites. I've done the vet routine and even went to a natural pet place, mites come back.

Anyone have any advise, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

I just tried the salt water swabs in my cats ears, after swaddling her in a towel to keep her still (and to keep her claws away from me!). Wrap your cat up firmly but gently so that just her head pokes out and you should be able to administer any ear treatment...

Re: Ear Mites and dogs
My dog had BAD ear mites, we tried collodial silver for weeks and it did nothing. Finally went to a pet store and grabbed a little bottle of 'Excel" medicated ear remedy, and it instantly took it all away.

He had them bad, and I wanted to try every natural approach first, which I did - but we just had to get the ear stuff at the pet store. Didn't pay 100's either, just about 10 bucks.
