i'm sure things change in the medical field with animals.
but ear mites are ear mites and they've been around a long time.

now how bout this for a kicker,
once you get the ears cleaned out, you can take a semi-wet rag thats been soaked in kerosene and that will do the same thing as the med to get rid of ear mites.

i'm from the country, we might do things a little different but we end up with the same results.

like bleach on poison ivy.
Just curious...who are you talking to?

thoughts?

suggestions on ear mite medication?
I heard this thread was a mess so I'm not even going to read through all the BS and BS advice. It sounds like an ear infection, ear mites are more of a cat problem not a dog problem. Ear mites are small red mites you can see.

The best thing is too is go to the vet and get some Mometamax which is for ear infections. I have tried the home remedy with vinegar, alcohol, and peroxide and that alone has not cured them.

Venom just got over an ear infection this last week. You need a ear wash to clean the ear out and balance the PH of the ear. I have used a modified version of the wash I described earlier. I do not use the Peroxide anymore in the wash as it was irritating the ear and making it worse. This last time I also cut out the alcohol. I just used like 3/4 apple cider vinegar and 1/4 water and it worked perfect. I got a used bottled water I had just drank, poked a hole in the lid, and used that to squirt it in the ear to wash it out. It worked like a charm! I cleaned it everyday then after put in the Memetamax. I have dealt with ear infections a lot and this was the easiest by far.

No need for oral antibiotics unless your dog gets a secondary bacterial infection from scratching the ear. An ear infection is most often a yeast infection not bacterial so antibiotics are not needed.

Also... the ear wash u use... is it just the apple cider vinegar and water? I have apple cider vinegar around for natural flea deterant

And could the infection come from a food change even though i switched them over to grain-free?

I already said this was done once, now a member is having to say it. LEAVE THIS POST ALONE UNLESS YOU ARE TALKING TO THE OP.

KC612 is an unknown quantity at this point
I'm a little late to the party I see....

Better late than never! My dog is having this same issue. Shaking her head a lot. I have a few questions for the OP or whoever cares to answer. Is the apple cider vinegar mixed with water just used to wash out the ear? Is mematexin sold over the counter? I'll admit I don't know a whole lot about dogs, but am eager to learn. I'm broke so I try to avoid the vet as much as possible, but will go if I need to. I like my pit happy!
