Dogs suffer from ear problems all too often. Is your pet shaking his or her head a lot? Or maybe scratching away at the ears with its paw? This could well be a sign of an ear infection. The good news is that you can treat most ear infections with home remedies. Dog ear mites can be eradicated with the details shown in this article.

Ear infections are most commonly caused by microscopic ear mites. They are tiny parasitic arachnids that feed on the capillaries in your pet’s ear. Invisible to the naked eye, they irritate the tender skin which then causes inflammation. Wax production increases and builds up in the narrowed ear canal and can cause blockages. No wonder they start shaking their heads!

The best way to treat the ear infection is with a herbal remedy that will help to clear the ear canal, soothe the inflammation and restore the balance of healthy bacteria.

Follow these instructions to apply:

Tilt his head to the side, lift the ear flap and add a few drops of the solution to fall into the ear canal. Hold the ear flap down and massage gently. Wipe any excess away. He’s going to want to shake his head afterwards so let him before repeating on the other ear. Wipe the ear flap clean with cotton wool. Don’t put anything inside the ear canal as you’re likely to do some serious damage. Please don’t use Q-tips or cotton buds.

If you have any other pets in the house, they all need to be treated too. Ear mites are very contagious and are often picked up from other animals. This is the most likely source of the infection.

Prevention must be a part of any home remedies. Dog ear mites can be kept at bay by taking a holistic approach to your dog’s health.

Make sure they have a good nutritious diet. Dogs should be groomed regularly and checked for any skin issues. Bathe your dog once every couple of months. Keep dog bedding clean and regularly washed. You can also use a maintenance dose of the herbal ear infection treatment if your dog suffers frequently from ear mites.

In summary, if your dog is shaking his or her head, then it’s a sign that there could be something wrong with their ears. Ear mites are the most common culprit. This is really uncomfortable for your pet so please take action straight away. If you follow the steps above you will be able to prevent and treat most dog ear infections yourself.
