Ear Mites

Signs That Your Pet Has Ear Mites

Ear mites are tiny parasites that infest the insides of the ears of dogs and cats. They look like dark coffee grounds and are often seen in patches on the internal portions of the ears of pets. Your pets will likely spend a lot of time scratching at their ears if these parasites are present as they are incredibly itchy. Your pets may also rub their heads against carpeting or furnishings in an attempt to stop itching from ear mites.

How to Handle an Ear Mite Problem

Cleaning your pets’ ears will help to keep ear mites from becoming a problem and will help you identify ear mites quickly so that they can be treated as necessary. Since ear mites are extremely communicable between pets, it is important to provide treatment to all animals in a household if one has an ear mite problem. Ear drops are used to kill existing ear mites. Make sure to launder all bedding that affected pets use in hot water to kill off any ear mites that may have landed upon the material. It is best to contact our veterinarian as soon as ear mites are noticed. We will provide your pet with the appropriate treatment to stop the problem and help keep mites from spreading to other pets in your household.

What Our Veterinarian Can Do to Help

If your pets are suffering from an ear mite infestation, our veterinarian can provide treatment. First, an evaluation of your pets’ condition is conducted to check for other potential medical troubles so that they can be treated at the time of your dog or cat's appointment. Ear mites can be removed with medicated ear drops that our veterinarian will prescribe for your pets. We will also show you how to properly clean the internal portions of your pet's ears so further difficulties do not become an issue.
