Home remedy for ear mites

Ear mites are horrible annoying things that the naked eyes cannot see but they sure could cause pain and discomfort to our pets and the sooner you get rid of it, the better it is for our pets. This is contagious and could be spread by using the owners as carriers and the mites could be passed to other pets.

Be sure to take our pet to the veterinarian for proper diagnosis before engaging in any of the home remedies for ear mites.

Since ear mites are so small and cannot be seen, how would you know if your pet is suffering from it? Well, first of, if your pet is constantly scratching and shaking his head – that would be the first sign that your pet may have ear mites. If you look at the ear, you probably won’t see anything except for an irritated and probably inflamed ear with little dark spots, which are dried blood, in your pet’s ear. This should be dealt with immediately for if left untreated this could cause your pet to lose his balance and for the infection to get worse in your pet’s ear. Here are a few home remedies for ear mites.

One of the best home remedies for ear mites would be the use of either vegetable or olive oil. Using a syringe, put a few drops in the effected ear. The oil will help loosen any mite dirt or wax. Be sure to keep your pet’s head to the side so as to help the oil go deep into the back of the ear. Massage the ear gently, be careful for the ear may be tender, and then with the help of some Q-tips, slowly clean out your pet’s ear. This home remedy for ear mites will help clean out the ears but not to rid off the mites themselves. To do that another favorite home remedy for ear mites would be the use of Yellow Dock Root Extract – about 9 drops with a tablespoon of water. Put a few drops in the ear and gently massage the ear to help along the mixture and after, let your pet shake the solution off. This is to be repeated once every 3 days for 6 weeks.

Also, you can try these different oils as part of your home remedy for ear mites: corn, almond, olive, mineral – these oil help soothes the skin, smothers the mites and helps with the healing process.

Another home remedy for ear mites worth talking about and is also natural is the use of ½ Almond Oil with 400 IU’s of Vitamin E. Let the mixture warm up to room temperature and using a syringe or better yet, an eye dropper, drops half the eye dropper into each ear. Gently massage your pet’s ears, again, to make sure the mixture gets in the ear. When done, either using a cotton ball or Q-tip, clean and dry out your pet’s ear. Do this for 6 days with a rest for about 3 days and then begin treatment again.

To help relieve the irritation, use Psorinum or Sulphur.
