How to Treat Ear Mites at Home?
So, it’s confirmed, your poor puppy has ear mites. Don’t worry, this issue can be solved easily as long as you act on time. The first step of the treatment will be taken by the doctor, who will clean the dog’s ears thoroughly and possibly prescribe a special kind of medication.
There are various options when it comes to ear mite medication for dogs but it’s always best to go for the one the doctor recommends. If you’ve found a product that you think would be useful, always consult with the doctor prior to using it on the dog. As you can see in this useful Youtube tutorial, a few tablespoons of olive oil or green tea can be used as great natural remedies for ear mites.
Even when the infection is gone, make sure to clean the dog’s ears regularly. At least once or twice a month to prevent the mites from returning. One of the products you can use to prevent ear mites from showing up again is the VetWELL Dog Ear Wipes with Aloe and Eucalyptus, as they do a great job when it comes to thoroughly clean the ears. I also recommend using the Doctor Beasley’s Advanced Ear Bomb, which is a very powerful solution that helps get rid of ear infections in dogs. However, always consult the vet prior to using any of these products!
Dealing with ear mites can be quite irritating since the infection is prone to returning if not treated properly. That is why you must act right away if you notice your dog showing any of the ear mite symptoms.
If you suspect of an infection, take the dog to the vet right away to begin the treatment. Luckily, the treatment can easily be done from home so you don’t have to go to the vet every day.
Here’s a short summary of the steps you should follow for the best ear mite treatment for dogs at home!
- Gather all the supplies you will need: gloves, old clothes, a clean cloth, cotton, medication, dog treats.
- Put on the gloves and clean the dog’s ears with a clean cloth or cotton. Make sure to talk to the puppy throughout the whole process so he feels less scared. Tell him he will get a treat afterward.
- Once the ears are clean, put several drops of medication in them.
- Massage each ear separately so the solution sinks in.
- Give the puppy a treat and repeat the process daily.
