Is your four-legged friend struggling with ear mites? At alphazoo we show you what exactly is behind it and how you can deal with it.

Characteristics of ear mites

Ear mites in your dog, also known as Otodectes cynotis, are microscopic parasites that nest in the dog's ear canals. They cause unpleasant symptoms such as itching, red and inflamed ears and noticeable, dark earwax production. If left untreated, they can lead to more serious problems such as hearing loss.

Ear mite symptoms

Ear mite symptoms can range from mild itching and discomfort to severe scratching and head shaking. Other signs may include inflamed ears, head shaking, and increased production of dark, almost black earwax.

How does my dog ​​get ear mites?

Ear mites are very contagious and can be passed from one animal to another. They are particularly common in puppies and young dogs. Almost all dogs come into contact with ear mites at some point in their lives.

Diagnosis and treatment

A veterinarian can determine whether your dog has ear mites by examining a sample of earwax under a microscope. Treatment usually involves cleaning the ears and using prescription medication to kill the ear mites. Additionally, a high-quality ear mite oil can be used to eliminate ear mites.

Prevention of ear mite infestation

The best prevention of ear mites is consistent care and cleaning of your dog's ears . Regular veterinary checks are also crucial for early detection of parasites.
