Cat And Dog Ear Mite Facts That You Might Want To Know

We humans are generally immune to ear mites but these small parasites can commonly affect both cats and dogs.
Signs of an ear mite infection in your pet may include one or more of the following:
  • Head shaking
  • Excessive scratching or rubbing of ears.
  • A black or brown waxy secretion with a strong odour.
  • A ground coffee-like discharge from the pet's ear
  • Inflammation
Ear mites can easily be transmitted to other animals from the infected pet. If you have more than one pet then treat them at the same time as an infected pet. Be mindful also if the infected pet is in close contact with other animals outside of your home.

If you suspect that your pet has ear mites then veterinary advice and treatment should be sought as soon as possible.
